The Nautical Look

Nautical Feature

“Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art

This stanza is from one of the most iconic poet and novelist of the recent times, Charles Bukowski. He believes that style is everything. And we agree!

Style is one of the factors that separate great men from the mediocre. Everyone must learn his own style. It comes from the most unexpected places and if you want to find it, you must be vigilant. Style inspiration is everywhere; just open your eyes.

One of the best places to get style inspiration is the sea. Some would consider the nautical look as a trend but we think it is more than that. It is a style and we firmly believe that will stay longer in the limelight. Timeless as it is, the nautical look can withstand the tests of time. Heck, it’s even perfect for all seasons!
