Nau (pronounced “now”) designs sustainable outdoor apparel that’s functional enough to handle the demands of the outdoors and stylish enough for the discerning urbanite. The Portland, Oregon-based clothing label launched its first collection in 2007 and has since formed a collective of sorts based on its partnerships with Nudie Jeans, Timberland Boot Co. and other brands that complement its vision. Nau's collection includes everything from sleek jackets and outerwear for surviving tough temps, backpacks, and eco-safe stainless steel water bottles to minimalist wool and organic cotton separates appropriate for the office. Enhanced with wind- and waterproofing, articulated tailoring, and other performance elements, Nau’s “green” clothing marries good looks and doing good.
SHFT is a sustainable lifestyle platform that curates a plethora of eco-conscious choices in everything from art and fashion to travel. Founded by actor/activist Adrian Grenier and film producer Peter Glatzer, SHFT is helping to nudge ecologically responsible choices into the mainstream with video series, news updates, and curated shopping experiences like this sale. With top-notch picks from brands like Nau, Core Bamboo, and Simple in the mix, it’s the perfect way to look good and do good at the same time.
Founded in 2005, Nau makes clothing that’s as at home in the city as it is in the great outdoors. Everything is produced with a keen eye toward sustainable practices and utility, and the look is modern and clean—pared-down to the essentials to ensure every piece will look sharp for years to come. Which is a good thing, since you won’t want to give up this blend of style and function any time soon. Nau’s attention to aesthetics, sustainability, and performance is evident in every piece they make, from technical jackets made of recycled textiles and treated for water resistance to sharp blazers done up in naturally renewable wool.
Good jeans are a crucial part of any guy’s wardrobe. There’s no question about that. The only thing left to ask, then, is what style you want to wear. Slim-fit or relaxed? Dark-and-crisp or faded-out? With this huge selection of denim from a slew of top brands, the possibilities are endless. Have at it.
If you haven’t tried this combination before, you should. Nothing sets off great jeans like a smart pair of brogues, cap toes, or oxfords — and vice versa. Plus, it’s the perfect way to toe the line between casual and dressed up. And if you have tried it before? Well, we know you need no convincing. Just get ready to stock up.
