Alpha Industries

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013


Started in October, 1959, Alpha Industries began as a small-scale manufacturer of military clothing. Over the years, they grew in size and ended up supplying jackets and pants for US Military forces, including Air Force and Naval Aviation flight jackets, Army and Marine Corps field jackets, and other military pants and clothing; over 40 million garments up to and through the Vietnam War. They’re best known for the MA-1 flight jacket and the M-65 field jacket, which initially reached the public through surplus supplies. Now, Alpha Industries offers both military garments and military-inspired casual clothing for public consumption, easily recognized thanks to the iconic three-line label, which Alpha trademarked and integrated into their logo.
