Alpha Industries was founded in 1959 in TN (my birth state!). Alpha has worked with the military since then, receiving an official contract to manufacture some of their jackets. Every detail on the jackets has a purpose and story behind it. For example, the orange lining the inside the jackets allows rescue crews to locate a person from the air. Bombers/Military style trends are currently inundating the market, but Alpha started the trend many years ago! Currently offered in Men's at Barneys, and launching Women's February 2017!
