Behind the Brand
In the military, a Nine Line is a medevac request for a soldier that is injured on the battlefield. To soldiers, a Nine Line symbolizes patriotism, hope, and trust in one’s countrymen.
As a life-style brand, Nine Line Apparel aims to reinvigorate the sense of patriotism and national pride that is disappearing daily from our society. Where politics and dissent divide our country, we hope to inspire unity and brotherhood among all Americans as patriots under our common flag.
At its core, Nine Line is a give-back organization, forever striving to be our brother’s keeper, and encouraging others to do the same. We support a multitude of initiatives beyond raising awareness, and financially back organizations that help those in need. From first responders to military charities to disaster relief initiatives, Nine Line is committed to ongoing support of charitable initiatives. No matter the circumstances, we've got your six.

the tenets of nine line
Respect the flag and what it stands for. The flag represents the sacrifices made by those who have fought and died to preserve our freedom and should be honored as a sacred symbol of all we stand for.
Support those who have and continue to serve honorably as members of the military, police, fire department, or any other public service. Hold those who abuse their power accountable but understand they do not represent the entirety of those who serve to protect us.
Third, and most importantly, being patriotic is nothing to be ashamed of. We at Nine Line are proud of our country, our flag, and our birthright, and it is our goal to reinvigorate this pride into our nation once again.
The Nine Line Call to Action
Nine Line Apparel represents the grit and commitment of all Patriotic Americans. Founded on the principles similar to other value based organizations, Nine Line aims to promote the issues faced by all those who have served their country, on both foreign and domestic soil. Nine Line encourages a conversation between those who serve and those who support them.
Our goal is to bridge the gap between civilians and service members, whether they are military veterans, law enforcement, or first responders. At Nine Line, we know that only united can the American people fight injustice and preserve our freedom and independence. We aim to be a voice for the people, a channel through which patriotic Americans can make themselves heard.
What initially was conceived as a promotional products company between a military veteran and his wife, evolved into the brand Nine Line Apparel in 2012. It all began in Tyler and Angela's garage, and eventually the operation moved to a small house. Tyler was still active duty and frequently deploying; so Angela managed the fledgling business in Tyler’s absence. Fortunately, in 2013, Tyler returned from a deployment just in time for the company’s first-ever holiday rush. Angela and Tyler packed and shipped packages through the night in order to fulfill the unexpected flood of orders. It was obvious that this house would not sustain the fast-growing business much longer so they moved the company to a small storefront near downtown Savannah in 2014.
Though the storefront initially seemed to have an abundance of space, ten months hadn't passed before Nine Line outgrew its new home. Even after leasing the property next door, purchasing half a dozen shipping conexes, and installing two mobile office trailers, the rate of growth continued to surpass available space.
Future of Nine Line
It didn’t take long for Nine Line to outgrow the storefront property near downtown Savannah. On October 12, 2017, Nine Line hosted a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of their new 60,000 square foot facility on the outskirts of Savannah.
Nine Line is committed to continuing to create jobs here in America. We have made a conscious decision to move away from foreign made materials wherever possible, and are committed to creating a cut & sew factory here in Savannah, GA in the next three years. Although remaining profitable is the tenet of any successful business, we have innovative ways to ensure this occurs while returning manufacturing to the US. We will continue to hone our skills in the Apparel industry while expanding to markets outside of Apparel.
Constant pursuit of excellence
The hard work and dedication over the past few years have proven themselves in the most recent recognitions awarded to us. Most recently Nine Line has been awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year award by Savannah, Internet Retailer proclaimed us the fastest growing online retailer, BigCommerce declared our site the best designed website out of 3,000 applicants, and most notably Inc 5000 declared us the 31st fastest growing company in the entire United States.
