About Nautica

Nautica, a modern American classic, offers quality, design and value while capturing the essence of an active, adventurous and spirited lifestyle.

Founded in 1983, Nautica® is a leading global lifestyle brand ranging from men’s, women’s and children's apparel and accessories to a complete home collection. Inspired by the sea, designed in the city, Nautica offers classic nautical style for all occasions. Today, Nautica is one of the most recognized American brands throughout the world, available in more than 65 countries.

Nautica took its name from the Latin word "Nauticus" for ship. Since one of mankind's first accomplishments in exploring the world was to take to the seas, a spinnaker logo was designed as a symbol of adventure, action and classicism. Today the world of Nautica represents both a rediscovery and reinterpretation of what Americans have always wanted to wear.
