Our story starts in 1983. Founder and designer, David Chu, had one clear vision: bring the inspiration of the sea to everyday style across the world. Starting with only six outerwear styles, Nautica is a leading global lifestyle brand for men, women, and children, which includes home bedding collections. As a nautical-influenced classic American sportswear brand, we inspire and enable people to experience the joy of water. Today, Nautica is one of the most recognized American brands throughout the world, with over 35 categories available in more than 65 countries with 76 Nautica stores and 291 International stores, and over 1,400 Nautica branded shop in shops worldwide.
