Nautica Black Sail had me at the trouser shapes. The chunky sweaters, styled with cozy scarves or belted at the waist, just made my love for this collection grow stronger. Chris Cox, design director of Nautica, took inspiration from the nautical expeditions of Sir Ernest Shackleton, an explorer invested in the race to the South Pole. Hence the sporty fisherman cable knits and cashmere sports jackets, the nylon active pants, the snorkle down coats, technical parkas and shearling jackets.
The stuff real guys wear everyday. Really.
