The Washingtonian published an interesting feature on Mike Green and Braden Holtby on Monday. You’re gonna wanna click and read it right now. It focuses on the personal lives, friendship, and style of the two Capitals.
“Fashion was one of the things that sort of brought [Mike Green and me] together, believe it or not,” Holtby said to Valeria Boucas.
The players discussed where they shop (Holtby: Scotch & Soda, John Varvatos, Billy Reid, and Suit Supply; Green: Mr Porter, Gilt, Billy Reid, and Neiman Marcus). They also revealed their favorite restaurants around the DC area (Holtby: Virtue Feed & Grain; Green: Le Diplomate).
Holtby, who said his friends joke that he looks more like an artist than a hockey player, ruminated on the ebbs and flows of the Holtbeard.
“Right now it’s the shortest it’s been in awhile,” he said. “I actually grew it out this summer, and it was huge. No one would recognize me back home, so it worked perfectly.”
The interview is packed with great quotes, like one, which I’ll leave you with, from Mike Green: “You represent yourself through your clothing.”
I was wondering why I was wearing this frumpy grey sweater again today. It’s because I hate myself.
Thanks to @MimiPH for sending me the story!
