Our latest collaboration comes right at the heels of the highlight of the fashion calendar – New York Fashion Week – Where we joined forces with stylist and designer, Jace Lipstein of Grungy Gentleman. The Grungy Gentleman x Timberland Collection merges design staples from both brands – the distinctive 6-stripes well known to Grungy Gentleman, with the iconic 4 rows of stitching on our Classic boots.
Grungy Gentleman’s recognizable 6 stripes have taken over menswear, fashion, and sports culture in New York and beyond. Our own boots have a unique history and place within New York culture – so it was a natural combination of the minds to create a collection between these two original brands.
Jace, founder and designer of Grungy Gentleman, has been a Timberland fan since childhood – donning the boots since before he can remember. Grungy Gentleman is high-fashion yet trendy and casual; it’s athletic and refined; it’s simplicity meets masculinity; expertly combining athletic, fashion and entertainment elements with all of their styles – which fits perfectly into spaces where Timberland naturally exists.
The Grungy Gentleman x Timberland Collection brings a refreshing take on the Classic 6-inch boot, and went down the road less travelled with an unexpected twist on the Killington Oxford. The Killington, made with SensorFlex Comfort System puts a sporty design on an already athletic-looking (and very comfortable) shoe – a natural corresponding piece of footwear to wear alongside some of Jace’s other collaborations with organizations like the New York Knicks and Rangers.
The Premium 6-inch boots are the Classics that people have come to associate with Timberland, but these come with a modern makeover to the boot’s collar to incorporate the Grungy Gentleman 6-stripes. The Premium 6-inch boots come in classic wheat and black nubuck.
The Timberland x Grungy Gentleman Collection is a forward-thinking line – with new, thoughtful designs on some of our favorite pairs of footwear. The line is revitalizing, while still staying true to both the Timberland and Grungy Gentleman roots.
