An exclusive look at Timberland’s new naturally dyed Black Quartz collection

When you think of Timberland, the first thing you think of might be the classic 6-inch wheat boot. In the last few years, however, Timberland has really stretched its wings and spread our further, taking its iconic status as a sign of acceptance in the fashion community, which brings us to the Black Quartz collection.

The Black Quartz collection is all about premium leather dyed with only natural ingredients, produced exclusively for Timberland in limited quantities by AW Hainsworth. The new collection is draped in inky, slick black, a unique look that’s offset by natural wool highlights and classic gum outsoles.

Chosen for the line are three of Timberland’s most popular boots. The classic 6-inch boot has been updated for Black Quartz with brogue-inspired accents and that beautiful, deep black color. The other boot is the Eurohiker, which has the wool panels to break up the dark tone. The final boot is the roll-top, which exposes the luxurious wool lining inside when worn.


The limited edition release is paired up with a collection of photos shot by Shaniqwa Jarvis. The photos are collected into a zine that explores the modern workspace, especially those of individuals in creative fields. It’s striking examination of how people get it done across New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles.

It’s a nice change from the dozens of shades of chemically-treated browns that make up most boots, but then again, Timberland isn’t looking to produce something typical. From collaborations with musicians and artists of all kinds, it’s a new era for the New England based boot brand. If the Quartz Black collection doesn’t convince you that Timberland has an eye on the future, then you’re living in the past.

The Timberland Black Quartz collection is available today, November 13th, on and in select retailers. The line is limited though, and likely won’t last long.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.

Every holiday has its own traditions and customs. And St. Patrick's Day is no different.

It turns out that learning to tie your shoes in Kindergarten may not have been the win you and your parents thought it was. Men’s slip-on shoes are all the rage these days. Call them ugly all you want — they’re easy to slip on when you’re in a rush and cozy to boot.

Maybe you’re a resident sneakerhead, or perhaps you simply don’t feel like splurging on a pair of designer men’s slip-on shoes. You might simply not be able to get passed the “ugly shoe” label of Birkenstocks (or the more budget-friendly dupes). Still, the ease of slip-on shoes is a massive perk.
