Divided Sashiko Varsity Jacket - Black Waxed Indigo & Brown Yak Leather


Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Nine Lives x Division Road Divided Sashiko Varsity Jacket is made from an exclusive Black Waxed Indigo Sashiko and Brown Yak Leather. This heavy weight 100% cotton proprietary Sashiko weave fabric took three fabric scientists to engineer the exact amount of spindle thread, tensions, distance, and spool weight to produce its desired hand, depth, elasticity, and texture. Made in what is likely to be the best Sashiko mill house in the world, this fabric is produced in a natural indigo dye with a subtle green cast to the over-woven yarns. A blackened wax is then hand applied to give a steely charcoaled finish over indigo to yield a shower-proof statement piece that will say more with each wear. The Sashiko is next paired with the Nine Lives exclusive Brown Yak Leather sourced in the Netherlands in a vegetable re-tannage that uses three oiling processes, including a hand finish of horse oil after tanning, all to provide malleability and a soft feel to a normally rigid hide that will flex and wear in beautifully. Nine Lives uses a pirate methodology of taking heritage production techniques, disposing of the unnecessary, then designing something completely new from fabric production to fit. Completely reworked from the classic Letterman style, this piece comes with a custom ribbed collar that can be rolled or worn up and a raglan styled paneled shoulder that feathers into articulated sleeves. Further specifications include a tailored three-panel front and back design for a modern moto-styled fit, and custom gunmetal snaps and zippered cuffs to highlight the tremendous combination of specialty materials. Finally, the addition of welted hand pockets half lined in leather, dual interior chest pockets, and a fully quilted satin lining complete the functional details of the piece. Designed for the modern man and compositionally creative alike, this vintage-inspired Varsity jacket has renegade refinement that transcends its style influences and applications.

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
