Nautica™ is derived from the Latin word 'nauticus,' meaning ship. Since conquering the sea was one of mankind's first accomplishments in exploring the world, the logo was designs as a symbol of adventure, action and classicism.
David Chu founded Nautica in 1983. Since then, it has grown from a collection of men's outerwear to a leading global lifestyle brand. In 2003, Nautica merged with the VF Corporation, which contributed to its worldwide brand appeal. It is now available in 64 countries with more than 170 Nautica branded stores worldwide.
Nautica is a leader in men's, women's, and children's apparel and accessories. Its swim line is compiled of simple, classic style suits that are adaptable to all occasions in and out of the pool. It offers quality, design and value while capturing the essence of an active, adventurous, and spirited lifestyle.
