Nine Line Apparel: Threads With Attitude – SHOT Show 2018

Today at SHOT Show Media Day we got a chance to catch up with the guys from Nine Line Apparel, a Veteran-owned clothing company that is a staple in the firearms community.

“Nine Line” is a military term most commonly known as a medevac, which has nine lines of information that tell the medical evacuation unit all it needs to know about the casualties they are coming to collect. This is obviously a hectic and stressful thing to handle.

I should also point out, a “Nine Line” brief is also given for Close Air Support (CAS). And those are generally a lot more fun to hand out. Anyway, the name Nine Line Apparel instantly identifies the brand as a military-themed clothing company.

Pretty sweet lid. Right?

Nine Line Apparel’s catalog includes a healthy dose of patriotic and 2A options in eye-catching designs. Putting their money where their mouth is, today they talked to us about the goal they have of making clothing in America, from American materials.

In fact, the hat I was wearing at SIG range day was built in the good old USofA. And is part of their latest crop of lids. Nine Line’s goon squad was on hand to cut up and display poor social habits, qualities I like in a company.

Looks good on the ladies.

There is something for everyone, including lots of “in your face hippie” messaging that is sure to piss off snowflakes. If you are a firearms fanatic or you belong to the “basket of deplorables” category, Nine Line Apparel is worth checking out. With a complete line of men and women’s clothing, you can get all your shopping done in one place.
