I’m a big fan of flight jackets and I own a few myself, most of which are from Alpha Industries (see here, here and here). I’m quite excited for their new collaboration with Ben Sherman, re-recreating the MA-1 Flight Jacket in three new styles, combining signature elements of both brands. The collection includes the signature flight nylon fabric and organic interior fused with Ben Sherman’s tab branding and house gingham lining.
My favorite is the combination of the Blue with Sage colorway, all the styles feature special dual branding created for this exclusive collaboration with the famous Ben Sherman Harrington pocket tab, the quintessential Alpha Industries sleeve pocket and leather zip puller. A Ben Sherman ‘mod’ tipping has also been cleverly worked into the jacket hem and ribbed cuff; re-working this all-American icon. Each jacket retails for $250 and are available at alphaindustries.com.
If you’re looking for a more affordable version there is always the classic MA-1 Flight Jackets for $135. Available in a variety of colors, and seen on celebrities like Kanye West, North West, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, etc. Fall is just around the corner and these jackets would be perfect!
