We recently launched our new Spin collection, featuring a new technical t-shirt, urban short and padded undershort. The collection is for those who want an alternative to the lycra shorts and jersey look, without compromising on comfort. It’s perfect for your next spin, whether that be a class, a commute or a weekend on the trails.
It seems apt that 2020 and our tenth year sees Milltag collaborating again with one of our earliest partners and one of the most iconic bands of the last 30 years. You could say this collection is Gigantic.
When we emerge from the current lockdown situation, everything is going to feel a bit strange. Going back to work, back to the shops, even just back to walking the streets will feel at least a little alien the first few times. Indeed, taking precautions around the spread of germs might become more normal and practiced than before. For many, going to work or going about everyday activities in public may mean wearing a facemask.
2020 is a big one for us at Milltag. It marks ten years since we debuted our first ever jersey, a nod to the successes of the 2009 Tour de France. Since then, life at Milltag and the cycling world have both changed immeasurably. The sport has gone from niche to the mainstream, powered by successes at Olympic games and Tours de France alike.
In between the dusk of Madchester and the dawn of Britpop two south Londoners produced an album fusing the new with the old. Drum machines, samples and sequenced bass was mixed with guitar riffs and witty, double-entendre strewn lyrics to produce a truly unique sound.
Following on from our Joy Division collection, we are very excited to be delving deeper into the Factory Records archive, designed by the legend that is Peter Saville. We’ve paid tribute to the bands but we wanted to honour the iconic label that was there at the forefront of the British music revival in the North West in the late 1970s.
