alpha industries, inc. Fall 2012 History Alpha Industries began in October, 1959 by completing existing Dobbs Industries' subcontracts for Rolen Sportswear and Dobbs' government contracts for raincoats and flight jackets. By December 1959, Alpha obtained its first U.S. Defense Department contracts to manufacture N-3B Air Force parkas and a U.S. Navy shipboard shirts. Although unknown to Alpha's management and most other Americans at that time, the on rushing events in Southeast Asia would lead to the Vietnam War and a virtual tidal wave of DOD contracts thereby assuring Alpha's future success. Iconic jackets During the 1960's, Alpha emerged as the dominant manufacturer of several styles that subsequently became iconic pieces of American clothing fashion. The most famous of these were nylon flight jackets like the MA-1 flight jacket, and the M-51 and M-65 field jackets. The MA-1 and other nylon fight jackets were issued to all U.S. Air Force and Naval Aviation pilots. The M-51 field jacket and its 1965 replacement, the M-65 field jacket were issued to most Army and Marine Corps personnel and to substantial numbers of Air Force servicemen and servicewomen. government and commercial labels Labels for U.S. Government contracts required either one solid line or no lines to separate the care label information from the item identification information. Alpha inserted 3 lines on labels of commercial clothing to easily distinguish it from U.S. Government garments. american heritage Initially as a contractor to the United States military, Alpha successfully transitioned to a commerical fashion enterprise equally at home in the civilian marketplace as the defense establishment. 2 Alpha Industries, Inc. firstname.lastname@example.org | 703.378.1420 3 ma-1 flight jacket MJM21000C1 Colors: Sage, black, gun metal, navy, replica blue, maroon The most recognizable flight jacket in military aviation history.

This heavy coarse fabric protected sailors in bad weather. Structurally, a pea coat is recognizable by its wide lapels, large buttons and vertical pockets. Pea coats are double breasted and traditionally fall at the mid-thigh. The original pea coat was so heavy that it featured a metal chain at the neckline, which was used to hang it. driver MJd41900C1 deck jacket MJd42090C1 Spotted CaMo Colors: Olive, black, spotted camo Colors: Black/black, olive/brown ensign MJe41021C1 Colors: Olive duster MJd41950C1 n-3b slim fit cotton MJs41870C1 Spotted CaMo Colors: Olive, khaki, black, spotted camo Colors: Olive, black, spotted camo Spotted CaMo 14 Alpha Industries, Inc. firstname.lastname@example.org | 703.378.1420 15 x-force 2-piece jacket MJx42010C1 Colors: Replica blue, replica gray, black wear it multiple ways 1.
