The entire range of Nau's product from 2010 for men and women is on temporary mega-sale at Wicker Park retailer, Connect, through Sunday April 3rd. This is the only Nau sale at this magnitude happening in the US right now. Everything from waterproof jackets, 100% waterproof down jackets, pants, shirts, made of recycled material and organic cottons. All of Nau's non-branded, fitted clothing that was shipped in for the event is at least 50% off. For this special Chicago sale, much of the merchandise for fall winter is wind proof and waterproof, and for spring is low-profile breathable fleece. This weekend's sale will be held in conjunction with a more outdoors-y Chicago-based retailer, Planet Access Company.
When we stopped in the store we got a tour of their enormous back stock which they are storing in Connect's performance area downstairs. There, we saw a ton of boxes which contained slim tapered denim for men, chinos, and cargos which this weekend may be opened to customers. There was also a rumor that there may be free live music in the stage area if the downstairs is opened. We'll keep our fingers crossed for the music because we know Connect throws great events, but in the meantime we're going to snatch up some deals.
