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.

Once in a great while, we wind up with some items that haven't found their way to a good home. It’s tragic, we know. But don't worry, there’s a silver lining. We’re offering them to you — at steeper-than-ever discounts — so we can make way for new gear. We’ve only got a few of each item in stock, so move fast.
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.
The season for those puffer parkas has passed. Spring’s on the horizon, and that means it’s time to invest in transitional outerwear that’s able to stave off the early morning chill without making you overheat when you step out for lunch. Lucky for you, all the picks in this sale will do just that. Don’t say we never did nothin’ for you.
