How Justin Timberlake Can Become A Real Man Of The Woods

How Justin Timberlake Can Become A Real Man Of The Woods

It was a tough week for Justin Timberlake. He released Man of the Woods, his new album, on Friday to resounding boos. The tastemakers at Pitchfork summed it up succinctly in their vicious review, calling the album “a huge misstep for the pop star. It is warm, indulgent, inert, and vacuous.”

To add insult to injury, his Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday was met with resounding mehs. One problem? JT just isn’t convincing us as a real man of the woods. But don’t worry – TURNER is here to help. Will the items and destinations below help put the media spin back in Justin’s favor? Well, we’re not miracle workers … but it’s worth a shot.

Duluth Trading Co. 

Start here, Justin! Duluth Trading Co. has been outfitting tradespeople of all stripes for decades. The brand’s offerings don’t just look tough – they are tough, using trusted fibers and state-of-the-art tech to create reliable (and comfortable) garments. Try the 100% cotton Free Swingin' Plaid Flannel, Justin – it’ll still let you pull off those dance moves with ease.

Takeya

When you’re out bringing sexy back to the woods, you can’t forget to hydrate. Takeya has you covered there, specializing in insulated hydration solutions for people on the go. Ideal for stashing in your backpack, the 18oz Takeya Originals bottle features an Original Spout Lid TM for easy, controlled, one-handed drinking. Kiss your thirst goodbye-bye-bye.

RAEN

The great outdoors are great, but all that sunshine can be tough on the eyes. RAEN sunglasses provide 100% UVA / UVB protection. They also look incredibly cool. Need convincing? Well, one of your fellow superstars, Rihanna, loves them.

Obermeyer

This I promise you, JT – the woods can get cold at night, especially this time of year. So don’t forget to pack your Obermeyer outerwear, designed in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in Aspen, Colorado. The classic Viking ski jacket is one of the brand’s signature items, protecting you from the elements in comfort and style.

Where Justin Should Go

So we’ve got our Man of the Woods all geared up … now he needs some actual woods. Here are a few suggestions.

  • Estes Park, CO – Located adjacent to the incredible Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is a woodsman’s paradise. Hike to gorgeous waterfalls, spot elk in a picturesque meadow and dip your feet in a crystal clear mountain stream.
  • Utah – The state of Utah boasts eight national forests. We recommend Ashley National Forest, which features an array of terrain, from red rock cliffs dotted with green pines and aspen to pristine alpine lakes.
  • Alberta, Canada – There are woods … and then there are woods. Alberta’s vast Boreal Forest Region comprises more than 48 percent of the province, and every inch of it is packed with spectacular natural beauty. Ready to roam, Justin?
