The History Of Alpha Industries:

In October 1959, Alpha Industries began making military clothing in the basement of a rented factory in Knoxville, Tennessee. It was a slow start as there wasn't a huge demand for military clothing at the time, but the US Defence Department could not ignore the outstanding quality of Alpha Industries clothing. Although Alpha Industries made many different types of clothing, it was to be the MA-1 Flight Jacket and M-65 Field Jacket which they would first become famous for. These two styles were made almost exclusively by Alpha Industries. By the 1970s surplus Alpha Industries clothing was being sold by the Army and Navy stores in the US and word of mouth spread about the excellent quality and design. Alpha Industries clothing was valued over other surplus army and navy clothing because its commercial clothing was made with the same quality and materials as the military garments. With a reputation like this it was only a matter of time before Alpha Industries casualwear took off - the MA-1 Flight Jacket and M-65 fishtail parka was renowned as a Mod fashion staple in the 70s. These classic Alpha Industries bomber jackets, with the iconic sage green or black with bright orange linings, are still available today.
Because it was hard for Alpha's factory workers to distinguish between the commercial and military contract clothing, Alpha added their now iconic three bars to the labels of the commercial clothing ranges. Although not intended by Alpha, the three bars logo became a visual trademark of Alpha Industries and customers quickly learnt to recognise it as representing superior quality, performance and comfort. The three bars are still part of the Alpha Industries logo, so you too can recognise genuine Alpha Industries jackets or clothing.
