My husbands favorite jeans are Nautica... although they definitely look like 'Dad Jeans' (he's 29). We get them from Dillards.

I got some really cute little Nautica Jeans, Shirts and Jackets for my kids from Marshalls a couple of years back. They were really nice quality.

Lacoste is the "upscale" version from Izod. There is a "difference" in these two brands. Can't believe the normal polos run $75-$80 where I live! My son is 17 and he says the current flavor of the month is Brooks Brothers shirts (yes...for teenagers!) and Vineyard Vines.

The Brooks Brothers dress shirts fit like tents. Some of those damn things went down to the back of my knees and the twill of the shirt was unbreathable. If the weather reached over 65 degrees F, I'd be a sweaty mess by the end of a workday.

Izod is one of my favorites.

I always felt Nautica was overpriced for what it offered. It's mid-level preppy fare. Nothing against it, if you can find it on sale it's pretty well made from my experience with a couple items I've owned over the years.

It certainly isn't relevant but I think at least people have heard of it, in many cases. That's something and that's probably why they haven't yet killed the brand.

Jazz, do you like Lacoste or is that somehow outside of your paradigm of what you'll wear?

Oh my, THIS. They're HUGE. I have them in the correct sleeve and neck sizes for me that work with most every other shirt-maker and yet BB shirts just billow on me. I don't think it would be possible to be big enough to actually need all that fabric and still be able to fit their neck sizes so I have absolutely no idea why they make them so massive. Nice shirts otherwise, but sheesh...it's so much unnecessary fabric and it's not flattering. I just wonder, WHY?

Yeah...I think he was talking more of the BB polo shirts. From the look of them in the store recently, looks like they updated their look/style/fit to keep up with the millennials. The hefty price tag is still there though...I told him he needs to get a job first!

I have occasionally gotten some good deals on Nautica clothing, sometimes for not much more than my usual IZOD. They will often sell for less than a comparable shirt from Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, or Polo Ralph Lauren, particularly during major sales. I have also gotten good deals on Nautica clothing at Stein Mart and Costco, as well as Amazon.

As for Lacoste, they are way too overpriced, often even more expensive than Polo Ralph Lauren, and they practically never go on sale.

Lacoste and IZOD have been separate since the 1990s. Lacoste is currently owned by Maus Frères SA, a Swiss family-owned holding group that also owns Gant. IZOD is owned by PVH, an American fashion company that also owns Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Van Heusen, ARROW, Warner's, Olga, and the North American rights to Speedo.

Vineyard Vines is also a popular brand where I live.
