TIMBERLAND BOOT COMPANY AND RAG & BONE PARTNER TO LAUNCH LIMITED COLLECTION OF MEN’S FOOTWEAR FOR FALL 2010
STRATHAM, NH, February 15, 2010 – The Timberland Company announced today that it has partnered with lifestyle brand rag & bone to design and distribute a limited collection of men’s fall 2010 Timberland Boot Company® boots, set to debut at Project Las Vegas, February 16 -18, 2010. The collection combines English tailoring with American-informed work wear and is being marketed and sold as “rag & bone crafted by Timberland Boot Company.”
Timberland Boot Company and rag & bone share a design philosophy rooted in quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail. Constructions and material choices are historically anchored in the first half of the 20th century and reflect the aesthetic and fundamentals of classic work wear. The boots are simple, yet tailor-made in appearance. Exquisitely burnished leathers and distinct fine lines suggest a life of purpose, transformed through time from life experiences and natural exposure to the elements.
“Timberland Boot Company and rag & bone both have a deep appreciation for authenticity, craftsmanship and timeless design,” said Brian Moore, Global Vice President of Men’s Footwear for Timberland. “We are excited to partner with a brand that shares this passion, and to create a collection of footwear that is understated but very distinctive in the marketplace.”
Marcus Wainwright, founder of rag & bone, stated, “Working with an authentic American bootmaker such as Timberland is a natural fit and represents a strong extension to rag & bone and its recently launched footwear collection.”
The fall 2010 “rag & bone crafted by Timberland Boot Company” collection of men’s footwear features three brand-new Timberland Boot Company® Tackhead series silhouettes, with two colorways for each – six boots in total. They include: Tackhead 8” Zip Chelsea Boot; Tackhead 7” Lace Up Boot; and Tackhead Boat Chukka. Styles are classically constructed with genuine Horween® leathers, Vibram® lug outsoles, mud finish hardware, distinguished black and white stitching and leather midsoles. Each features the signature “rag & bone crafted by Timberland Boot Company” logo on the pull loop and tongue patch.
Styles will be available globally at rag & bone retail stores, as well as select Timberland Boot Company and rag & bone retail partners in fall 2010. Suggested retail prices range from $300 – $350.
