March 2015: From lightweight bombers to brass buttons, military influences are making a major statement in street style fashion this spring. As one of the largest apparel contractors for U.S. Armed Forces for several decades, Alpha knows the timeless military look never goes out of style. Whether you go for an updated take on the classic army jacket or opt for a sartorial soldier look with utility pockets and epaulettes, consider these tips when assembling your wardrobe this spring.
Trust the essentials. Our best-selling field coat with an updated silhouette makes the Slim Fit M-65 a perfect Utilitarian topper for spring.
Layer on the classics. Try a lightweight flight jacket with epaulettes for an army-inspired style with sophistication.
Add a splash of color. Although military styles tend to favor khaki, don’t forget to mix it up with navy, black, grey and maroon too.
Track down an original. Investigate your nearest army surplus shop for authentic, vintage pieces. Find a store in your area using the ‘Find a Retailer’ page on the Alpha website.
