Treat your­self to some­thing nice, even if you don’t have any travel plans or a fancy party to at­tend. re­tail ther­apy is all about mak­ing your­self feel good, and it doesn’t have to be an ex­trav­a­gant splash.

Nau­tica is a la­bel that’s all about clas­sic ca­sual and sporty wear. Check out Nau­tica Men’s Fall 2010 Col­lec­tion, in­spired by the North­ern Sea, a mar­ginal body of wa­ter near europe.

the se­lec­tion of­fers a va­ri­ety of pieces in browns, orange and greens mixed with tra­di­tional Nau­tica blues and reds to re­flect a rich medley for fall. Func­tional out­er­wear, rich wools, cot­ton knit sweaters and heavy twill wo­ven shirts form the foun­da­tion of the col­lec­tion.

Out­er­wear fea­tures promi­nently, fus­ing func­tion­al­ity with beau­ti­ful de­sign. Key pieces in­clude the cot­ton or ny­lon twill trench coat, the Bal­last Parka and the tri-blend three-but­ton blazer.

For sweaters, new solids and pat­terns are in­cor­po­rated in key styles like the clas­sic crew­neck, quar­ter zip, turtle­neck and Vneck, all in cot­ton. Bot­tom wear comes in yarn dye twill car­gos and a va­ri­ety of jeans, with slim fit be­ing a dom­i­nant cut in denim.

also avail­able are re­versible ts, with new graphic ap­pli­ca­tions in fabrics like sueded jersey. For wovens, the plaid is prom­i­nent with tar­tan, block and watch pat­terns printed on poplin and twill. a key piece through­out fall is the work shirt.

there are three dif­fer­ent themes in the Men’s Fall Col­lec­tion.

Com­pe­ti­tion in­cor­po­rates quick-dry­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties and light­weight fabrics, while Baltic Sea mar­rries lux­ury and au­then­tic sportswear for a pol­ished yet rugged and hand­some look.

Pieces that stand out are the slim-fit chambray shirt, the om­bre yarn dye shirt jacket in dou­ble suede fab­ric and the pig­ment dyed fish­er­man sweater.

White Sea fea­tures a pal­ette of sig­na­ture blues, white and yel­lows mod­ernised through pat­tern, fab­ric and sil­hou­ette.

For tops, knits are mil­i­tary-in­spired with de­sign de­tails such as tabs and patch pock­ets on the sweaters. Look out for long and short sleeve t-shirts in new colours and de­tails.

to keep you warm, the Nau­tica Women’s Fall 2010 Col­lec­tion fea­tures trench coats to fem­i­nine, clas­sic knits to sweaters.

In the an­chor theme, out­er­wear is a sta­ple item. De­signs in gen­eral range from plaid to cire fabrics while spe­cial fea­tures in­clude wa­ter re­sis­tant fabrics, re­versible graph­ics and re­mov­able hoods.

With Scandi, colours are more sub­tle and blouses fea­ture fem­i­nine de­tails with foulard prints, pleated placket edges and ruf­fles.

Un­der Baltic Sea, there are ca­sual tops in chambray, wo­ven knits and po­lar fleece. Sail shirts carry em­broi­dery de­tail, el­bow patches and sail stitch­ing while graphic flo­rals and bows add a fem­i­nine touch.

If you’re look­ing for some­thing dressier, look to White Sea, which has tai­lored pieces like a drap­ing shift dress and a cot­ton silk but­ton down piece.
