ALPHA INDUSTRIES MA-1 NASA JACKET 178121 257
The MA-1 Vf 59 is a slim version of the regular MA-1. Although the name sounds rather cryptic, you don't have to be Alan Turing to decipher: VF stands for "Vintage fit", indicating that this version offers a better fit than the original. The numbers "59" indicate that the fit of this element is inspired by the MA-1 since 1959.the VF 59 dispenses with the bulky look of the modern MA-1 for a sophisticated look. Apart from a different fit, the MA-1 Vf 59 has the same innovative aviation nylon outer shell and lining as the modern version. Alpha Industries began as a manufacturer of military clothing in 1959 at a then-leased factory in Knoxville, Tennessee (USA). Alpha quickly gained popularity in the United States Department of defense due to its above-average quality of materials and products. This reputation spread to the civilian population and the brand became one of the leading street styles: a special design that penetrated from the outside into the ordinary world of commercial brands. The brand's fame has been built on several key models starting with the MA 1 bomber, a classic U.S. Air Force (U.S Air Force) jacket that has been on the market for over 50 years. It has been manufactured for use on cold days, with highly visible orange inserts for use in emergencies. Another model "icon" is the model m 65, which became the basic jacket of the infantry in 1965. He rose to fame during the Vietnam War. She was even used in the film "Taxi Driver", where she accompanied actor Robert De Niro while playing the title role. More than 55 years since its inception, Alpha Industries continues to focus on delivering quality and unique design to people who need it and appreciate it. Alpha Industries and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) are like best friends, so of course we update the iconic MA-1 with NASA fixes. By adding a solid material such as aviation nylon and the flight Tag®, you can get a functional jacket such as the MA-1 NASA.
