An American Classic with a British Twist

After several meetings with the Ben Sherman team we decided the time was right to join together with the fellow heritage brand to put a sharp British twist on the classic American military MA-1 flight jacket. The resulting three-piece collection combines Alpha's signature flight nylon fabric with Ben Sherman’s tab branding and house gingham lining.

The three bomber jackets feature a flight nylon shell known for its hard-wearing, versatile and water resistant properties. Special dual branding was created for this exclusive collaboration including the famous Ben Sherman Harrington pocket tab, the quintessential Alpha Industries zippered utility/pencil pocket and the leather zip pull. A Ben Sherman ‘mod’ tipping has also been cleverly worked into the jacket knit cuff and waistband. The first of the three styles available comes in a classic sage green with a replica blue tipping on the cuff and waistband. The second style follows the same construction in a replica blue with contrasting grey tipping, while the final style incorporates both color-ways with a replica blue body and sage green arms.

The collaboration has already been causing quite a buzz with GQ Magazine in the UK calling it out as a must-own option for Fall layering. Be sure to secure your Ben Sherman x Alpha Industries MA-1 when it goes on sale on AlphaIndustries.com on August 17.
