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.

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.
