These crisp navy nautical rope suits are reminiscent of weekend trips to Nantucket. A day in the ack suit should consist of saltwater covered skin, a sea breeze sifting through your hair, mudslides at the Gazebo, sunsets at Millie’s and strolls through Siasconset.
If you decide to put these on in the dead of winter to reminisce on summer’s past, remember that you don’t have to take them off. Just wear them to the gym or the sauna after. Because the ack is built to become part of you, all year round.
Nantucket is an island about 30 miles (50 km) by ferry south from Cape Cod, in the U.S. state of Massachusetts.
The name “Nantucket” is adapted from similar Algonquian names for the island, perhaps meaning “faraway land or island” or “sandy, sterile soil tempting no one.”
Moby Dick, published by Herman Melville in 1851, famously portrays the whaling, or whale-fishing, the community of Nantucket, an island off the coast of Massachusetts.
One of the most interesting facts about this is that Herman Melville never actually visited Nantucket before writing the book even though the community and the seas that it borders are such a central setting of his novel. He did visit Nantucket after his novel was published, however, and met with a famous sea captain, George Pollard Jr, who survived a famous whaling expedition.
