Castaway Nantucket Island is as exceptional as it is classic, as imaginative as it is familiar. We craft traditional coastal clothing that has passed the test of time - embroidered Bermuda shorts, seersucker shirts, corduroy pants, and more - with our love of the sea, sport, friends, and family in mind.
We are most passionate about a few indispensable elements of the American coastal ensemble. Sailcloth Canvas, Seersucker, Wide Wale Corduroy, Embroidered what-have-you, and Madras make up the foundation of our brand. We have sourced, refined, cut, and polished these fabrics and treatments with one eye off our stern and the other off our bow. We know the style's heritage is as rooted as its future.
At Castaway, we are preserving a truly American style, born at beach bonfires and aboard anything that floats. We are buoyed by tradition, quality, and the ideals of life by the sea. Thank you for supporting Castaway Nantucket Island.

They even went as far as to dub us as one of the "cleverest clothes" of the season. The part that hit home for us at Castaway came from Band of Outsiders Designer, Scott Sternberg: "It's the notion of crazy pants," said Mr. Sternberg, referring to the boldly colored or patterned trousers that are a preppy staple. "It's within the genre of conversational...
