The Real Deal
In October, 1959, more than 50 years ago, Alpha Industries began its operations making military clothing in the basement of a rented Knoxville, Tennessee factory using leased sewing machines and only a few employees.Â Â Â The first few years were very difficult for newly formed Alpha because it was a time of peace and the U.S. Defense Department purchased only small quantities of military clothing.Â However, the outstanding quality of Alphaâ€™s clothing quickly came to the Defense Departmentâ€™s attention and as Americaâ€™s Â need for military clothing increased as the Vietnam conflict deepened, Alphaâ€™s growth as a manufacturer for the Defense Department rapidly accelerated.

A mid-weight nylon with water resistance and scads of versatility, the MA-1 Navy fighter pilot jacket was the first military flight jacket to cross over into civilian fashion. Our nylon flight jacket includes knit cuffs, a knit collar and waistband, as well as a strong front zipper with storm flap for warmth. Our MA-1 jackets are reversible to bright orange, making them ideal for rescue missions and other times when visibility is imperative.
This current version has been kept as close as possible to the classic specifications (dating back to the early 1950â€™s) and also received several revisions during the 1960â€™s.
