The Nine Lives 9LU Military Spec Canvas Cargo in Khaki is based on a recent pattern development between Division Road and the Tokyo-LA based 9Lives brand. Made in a specialty 100% Cotton Canvas milled in Japan in a military specified plain weave with a slight slub that uses a finer quality yarn than the original, this fabric will wear beautifully after repeated wearings and washes. These trousers are designed to have a refined modern fit for various body types with a medium-high rise, room in the seat, a moderate thigh and a dramatically tapered leg that includes an articulated knee and a narrower hem. Beyond just the fabric and an elevated and articulated fit, this special creation with Nine Lives has perfectly proportioned patch front pockets with slanted openings that integrate into a clean side cargo pocket, gusseted only on the front edge to limit bulge when holding contents. Distinguishing characteristics further reinforce the design of the trousers, like a diamond gusseted back yoke, flap back welted pockets, concealed military grade snaps, two-piece waistband integrated with raised and tucked belt loops, finely taped seams throughout, and an antique brass top button with a zipper fly. These considerations and specifications highlight the Nine Lives approach of taking heritage production techniques, disposing of the unnecessary, then designing something completely new from fabric and form to a garment with function. The 9LU Cargo culminates as a refined statement piece by utilizing an elevated version of a military fabric and tailored construction with high design for an inspired, modern garment with utility for the urban battlefield.

About Nine Lives

Using heritage-based materials and techniques in unheard of methods, Nine Lives is “Zen as Fuck.” Bi-centralized in Los Angeles and Tokyo, Nine Lives manages to be East and West but neither. They combine the highest quality patterning, material production and construction available, honoring olden techniques but with a pirate view of theft and appropriation of those elements to create something totally new, unseen, and sometimes obscene. Combining the experience of careers in tattooing, poetry, apparel and garment design,... View All Nine Lives Products
