For Alpha Industries, they are as legit of a brand as they come. In 1959 the United States Department of Defense recruited Alpha to redesign their military jackets. The new jet age was an era in which pilots were now soaring to greater heights and dearly in need of technical apparel to keep up with their flights. This was coupled with new terrain faced by infantry. The bottom line was Alpha was able to re-engineer technical apparel for the armed forces which increased comfort, performance and reliability. From the realm of the military, Alpha has also added collections of jackets for civilian use, successfully incorporating a legacy of innovation with contemporary styling. Three jackets seen here include the Hawk, McGyver and Mod Squad. A list of dealers for this collection can be seen here.
