    Alpha Industries History

    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.   The first few years were very difficult for newly formed Alpha because it was a time of peace and the U.S. Defence Department purchased only small quantities of military clothing.  However, the outstanding quality of Alpha's clothing quickly came to the Defence Department's attention and as America's  need for military clothing increased as the Vietnam conflict deepened, Alpha's growth as a manufacturer for the Defence Department rapidly accelerated.

    Alpha specialized in manufacturing many types of jackets and pants for U.S. military forces.  As the years went by America's Defence Forces came to rely more and more on Alpha's expertise to produce U.S. Air Force and Naval Aviation flight jackets, Army and Marine Corps field jackets and a host of military pants and other clothing.  During this time Alpha manufactured over 40 million garments for the U.S. military ranging from simple hoods to complicated cold weather Gore-Tex parkas. 

    Although Alpha made many different types of clothing the company became most associated with several jackets that became classics of American fashion.  Two of these jackets--- the MA-1 flight jacket and the M-65 field jacket-- were almost exclusively made by Alpha for the military and Alpha was instrumental in working with the U.S. military designers to improve their performance and design.  Subsequently when these garments migrated from their military roots into globally popular casual or street wear styles Alpha, as the authentic producer of the MA-1 and M-65 for the military, also became famous in the public's mind for these styles.

    new fit delivers

    discovered this new fit in a department store, tried it on and really liked the less bulky, more slim lined styling, ( quite contemporary ).. sleeve length and overall details just right. The store didn't have my colour so I bought online from Flightstore. Have worn daily since receiving and this new styling allows for all the movement you would expect, its very warm and Alpha quality.. I would recommend. Flight store customer service was spot on and that's the way it should be !
