The weather is cooling and the nights are getting longer – Winter is well and truly on its way, so it’s time to update your wardrobe with some amazing Winter staples. Get ready to face the cold snap head-on.

An absolute Winter must-have is a good quality, stylish and comfortable bomber jacket.

We here at The Zine absolutely love Alpha Industries collection of bombers. Not only because of the jacket’s rich history, we also adore the on-trend yet classic designs and luxurious feels.

MA-1 Skymaster Lightweight Flight Jacket

This contemporary variation of Alpha Industries classic MA-1 flight jacket is, put simply, beautiful.

The MA-1 design was introduced in the 1950’s – Alpha Industries scored it’s first Department of Defence contract in the same decade. Like all bomber jackets, Alpha Industries originally manufactured this cult-classic for military use, later adapting the design for the civilian market.

This jacket comes with all the traditions of the lightweight bomber – knit cuffs, collar and waistband, a trans-nylon, water-resistant exterior and nylon lining.

The nylon-web oxygen tab with contrast stitching pays homage to the original military-spec MA-1 – the tab allowed pilots to clip their masks to it. While the two-flap pockets with snap closures, two interior welt pockets and zippered utility pocket on the sleeve allowed easily accessible storage of items for militants on-the-go.

With such rich history behind it, Alpha Industries continue to impress even the most fashion-forward shoppers with quality-made bombers. Alpha Industries use iconic silhouettes as inspiration for contemporary and stylish designs that suit modern-day living.
