Founded in 1983, NAUTICA has grown from a collection of six men’s outerwear pieces to a leading global lifestyle brand that encompasses products ranging from men’s women’s, children, accessories, and a complete home collection. Celebrating “30 Years The Water,” the 2013 FALL/WINTER BLACK SAIL COLLECTION is a winner through and through. Inspired by the famed nautical expeditions of Sir Ernest Shackleton, the collection is a seamless mix of the familiar (killer snorkel coats) with new focus on the strength and relevance of the brand.
