Millions of U.S. servicemen and women can vouch for the quality, comfort and durability of Alpha Industries' flight jackets. Launched in 1959 in Knoxville, Tennessee, Alpha Industries got its start making outerwear for the Department of Defense — eventually producing nearly all of the MA-1 flight jackets and M-65 field jackets worn by Army, Navy, and Air Force soldiers. Today the company designs crisp, military-inspired clothing for adults and kids who appreciate modern cuts and old-school functionality. Whether you're looking for a stylish parka, leather bomber jacket, or vintage field coat, shop Alpha Industries. Call it basic training for your wardrobe.
These offerings prove that style can come in very small sizes. Rag & Bone extends its modern aesthetic to the preschool set. Alpha Industries’ military chic can be seen in pink cargo pants for little girls and NASA leather jackets for little boys. Gola and Superga offer sneakers so cool you might want a matching pair for yourself. Peek and Tea Collection offer globally inspired clothes for both genders.
Alpha Industries has made an industry out of building rugged jackets. Though these toppers recall the style of enlisted men, the tough-as-nails canvas coats are perfect for civilians. In this sale, there are also plenty of cargo shorts, shirts and a few tough tees. It can't hurt that Alpha is an official outfitter of the U.S. Air Force.
Put the shirt on your back with this brand blowout. Featuring go-to tailors like Façonnable, Ted Baker, Duncan Quinn and Calvin Klein, as well as edgier upstarts like Ever, ComingSoon and Billy Reid (GQ’s designer of the year), there are also plenty of brands that carve out their own unique style niche by walking the line between banker and artist. Check out the goods from Rogues Gallery, Converse John Varvatos and Alpha Industries, or stock up on T-shirts from kings of cotton C & C California, James Perse and adidas SLVR.
More than just military-inspired: called upon by the Department of Defense, Alpha Industries has produced jackets for the Army, Navy, and Air Force since 1959. The surplus material went to the creation of crisp, sturdy outerwear for civilians—like this selection of jackets, structured dresses, pants and skirts. Check out the Princess pea coat for girls … but don’t let the name fool you: There are no girly ruffles in this finely tailored look. And the lightweight graphic hoodie pairs perfectly with army-green cargo pants or loose-fitting plaid capris.
