Miltons has been providing top notch menswear to New England clients for almost eight decades. Their motto promises that customers will be as comfortable in their stores as they are in their clothes, and Arrowstreet has been helping them deliver on that promise for 25+ years.

In the era of online shopping, it’s still nice to touch fabric options and speak to a menswear expert about how a suit should fit and feel. When they decided to open a new store in the Burlington Mall, Miltons wanted to balance the classic, in-person suit fitting experience their customers expect with the approachability of a modern store design to appeal to a broader audience.

The unique space offers both an exterior entrance from the parking lot and an interior entrance from the mall. To cater to different kinds of shoppers, each entrance was designed to highlight a different part of what Miltons offers. Customers who enter from the parking lot are greeted by the legacy store experience, surrounded by the finest men’s suits. In contrast, window shoppers entering from the mall side experience a modern retail display offering a wide range of casual apparel.

Comfortable seating areas and illuminating lighting offer places for family and friends to watch fittings for special occasions. Interior finishes were selected to mirror their attention to bespoke detailing. Custom millwork is a focal point at entrances and throughout the store interior, and fabric wall coverings were chosen to mimic suiting fabrics. Large-scale quotes on the wall introduce humor and modernity to round out this exceptional shopping experience.
