Alpha Industries are well-known all over the globe for their great quality and functionality which made them a big part of today’s street fashion. Started in 1959 by Samuel Gelbe in Knoxville, Tennessee, Alpha Industries became a contractor for the U.S. Department of Defense manufacturing many types of jackets and pants for the U.S. military forces, like the MA-1 FLIGHT JACKET, L-2B FLIGHT JACKET, and N-2B PARKA. The jackets were primarily used by U.S. Air Force, Navy pilots and air and ground crews. 50 years later, and moving away as a solely military supplier, Alpha Industries is now a fashion statement, a contrasting icon with its orange lining and red hanging tag.
