Fall 2005 Collections

Cool, crisp days and rich, blazing colored leaves mark the arrival of Fall. The change of the seasons calls for a change of wardrobe. Functional, fashionable outerwear, rich wool knit sweaters and soft-luxe woven shirts are the foundation of the Nautica man's fall closet. For Fall 2005, Nautica presents a collection steeped in tradition, blending classic sportswear design with technical innovation. The look is timeless, balanced and energetic - pure Nautica.

CREW. Inspired by the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston and the long tradition of rowing at great universities of the East Coast of America, the Crew collection speaks to the heritage of the Nautica brand. Vibrant primary colors make a bold statement - orange, lighthouse yellow and Olympic blue play off of sig-nature Nautica navy blue. Corduroy five pocket bottoms are a sportier, updated take on a classic fall pant, especially when executed in a riot of colors. Woven shirts look fresh and new in small-check Tattersal and Bengal stripes - classic collegiate. Bengal stripes - classic collegiate.

HIGHLAND . After a long day rowing, it's time to hit the books in this collegiate inspired delivery. Updated classic Argyle sweaters, beefy cotton rugby shirts in classic stripes and woven shirts in exploded Scottish heritage plaids complete the casual, weekend look. Pops of yellow and gray in heathered tones provide a nice contrast.
