NEW YORK, Feb 10, 2012 / — At the Empire Hotels Oyster Bar, the short trek upstairs from the ground floor to the second floor became a long 10 minutes with a very high interest from fashionistas for Nauticas latest collection.
And Nautica did not disappoint as the label presented menswear inspired by the iconic watermen of the American northeast coast.
Trawling the eastern seaboard for inspiration, the resulting silhouettes gravitated towards the seas denizens – sailmakers, dockhands, boat captains and coastal prepsters.
Toggle coats, cargo pants, cardigan sweaters, full zip sweater jackets, sailing vests, pullovers, gear jackets and sailing jackets are essential parts of the wardrobe.
All the pieces can easily be translated into a mans wardrobe whether he lives in the Atlantic Northeast or the Pacific Northwest, or any part of the world, actually.
