And then, at the end of the season where you will be wearing these clothes, they all go on sale to make room for the next season. This means you can get good deals on winter clothes in the late winter/early spring, good deals on summer clothes in the early fall, and on and on it goes.

But within this strict hierarchy is a season you may not have noticed exists: Cruise Season. Now, I've never been on a cruise, but judging at what fills the stores during Cruise Season, those ships are filled with people wearing nautical stripes and things with images of anchors and whales on them.
If you're like me? That's how you dress YEAR ROUND. Which is what this post is about -- you can get the best selection (and deals!) on nautical striped garb RIGHT NOW, i.e., the end of January. I was just in The Gap, where all of their Cruise Wear is currently on sale. Same at Joe Fresh and likely other stores as well.
