These Boots Are Made For Walking
All in the Family
Introduced in the mid-1950s, the MA-1 became the flight jacket of U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots and ground crew replacing the B-15. Alpha Industries' first government contract to manufacture the MA-1 was awarded in 1963 and a few years later we started making the flight jacket for the civilian population. Made with flight nylon, the jacket features a knit collar, waistband and cuffs, utility/pencil pocket and an Emergency Orange lining. Today MA-1 is one of our top sellers. We produce it in a variety of fashion colors and use its iconic silhouette as inspiration for contemporary designs.
