Milton Green’s New Years Resolutions

Uh-Oh. It’s that time of year again. That time of year where you make 100 different promises to yourself and by January the 4th you’ve already skipped yoga, forgot you’d turned vegan and you’re sitting in the local, pint in hand watching Jeff read out the final scores – we’ve all been there.

Good job the team at Milton Green are on hand to help. We’ve come up with some New Years resolutions that don’t involve yoga, quinoa or Jeff Stelling so if we can do it, so can you.

1. Learn some new Knots. There’s more than one way to do your tie chaps. Depending on your shirt style you should be equipped to tie a number of different styles to match your ensemble. Let’s take a cutaway collar for example. A ‘windsor’ knot will fill the wider collar far better than a standard tie knot. It also emphasises your tie far more effectively. Little things make a big difference, gents!


2. Iron out some creases and save some pennies. The average male dry cleaning bill is over £300 per year. Now, we know as well as the next bloke that you’ve got to do your suits but cleaning and ironing your shirts can save a fortune. So get your whites on with fabric softener, whitening agent and a tab (we love fairy’s ‘liqui-tabs’) and they’ll come up good as new. Do your ironing in front of the TV just once a week and bobs your uncle, you’ve saved enough for that Milton Green you’ve been eyeing up.


3. Shave well. Now we know the electric Razor that Aunt Jude got you for Christmas looks great, but gents, beards are for hipsters with fanny packs. Invest in a decent shaving kit and some good moisturiser to match. Aim to shave well once a week – there’s nothing wrong with a bit of stubble either! We recommend Triumph & Disaster, made from natural ingredients found in New Zealand.


4. If you buy cheap, you buy twice. We’re pretty fed up of high street stores (we won’t name and shame) knocking out poorly made, overpriced pieces that just don’t last. This doesn’t mean that you should buy the most expensive product on the market, but buy home grown quality brands that you know will last a lifetime. So if you’re buying brogues, go to Loake, if you’re looking to stay dry, shop London Undercover and if you want a good suit, go to Saville Row. Oh and if you want a shirt that’s going to last, you’ve come to the right place.


5. Add a Milton Green to your formalwear collection. We had to save the most important till last guys! Our collections are limited in numbers, we don’t wholesale and we don’t compromise price with quality. If you want a shirt that can be worn in and out of the office, will last a lifetime and won’t cost your yearly dry cleaning bill, give us a try, we won’t disappoint.



Celebrating The release of the wolf on DVD….here’s our ‘Fashion fit for Wall Street’

This blog we’ll be doing nothing but appreciating fashion fit for Wall Street. We’ll be looking at Jordan Belfort and the rest of the boys at Stratton Oakmont for some inspiration and giving you some ideas of how to get the look with Milton Green. Like Leo’s ensemble here? This pinstripe suit with light blue shirt is set off perfectly with a patterned tie and gold wristwatch (we’re guessing it’s not a casio).
