Nail Your Yacht Style Game with These Essentials from Nautica

Prepare to out-dress every other guy at the boathouse.

In 1983, Nautica landed on the style scene with a splash, upending the overly stuffy look so frequently seen in the yacht clubs of Greenwich and Nantucket. Thirty-five years later, they've kept this drive going. With their new line—featuring form-fitting polos, selvedge denim, and a stylish-as-hell overnight duffle—Nautica has somehow made seafaring attire cool. This summer, no matter where you're going—whether you're strolling the city streets or sailing the high seas—Nautica has your look covered. Now, only one question remains: where are you going?
