Known for their social responsibility and sustainability, Portland-based Nau is a brand for those who work hard and play hard. That duality is at the forefront of their fall collection which blends classic menswear tailoring with technical attributes fit for the outdoors. It's activewear that whispers rather than screams its technical performance benefits. Engineered to be intuitive and utilitarian, Nau's line of clothing is built with movement, comfort and sustainability in mind. The fact that you can feel good about the environmental footprint and wellbeing of the person who made these double-duty pieces that work in a range of environments? Well that's the win-win on which Nau's built their business.
Vice II Blazer, $280
One of Nau's most popular pieces of outerwear. Like a field jacket, it's comfortable and casual with plenty of pockets. The 60/40 recycled poly/organic cotton fabric has a tight double weave that's durable, wind resistant and treated with a DWR finish to provide water repellency.
Atelier Blazer, $200
Inspired by workwear, this utilitarian piece is based on a traditional French painter's jacket but cut from a recycled poly and organic cotton cloth.
Riding Jacket, $225
Get the sartorial style of a well-tailored, soft-shoulder sports coat with the technical benefits of a breathable and weather-resistant shell.
Boundary Shirt, $98
Whether you're on your bike or tossing a football, this cleverly cut shirt, made from organic cotton with two percent stretch, was built for optimal range of motion. Layer it over a T-shirt or henley and wear it as a lightweight shirt jacket until the weather turns cold.
