    Alpha Industries began its introduction into the garment industry in 1959 making military clothing in the basement of a factory with only a handful of employees. Things were not always the easiest but one thing remained true was the quality of merchandise produced was far superior then any that was seen prior. This was quickly noticed by the Department of Defense and as conflicts had arisen, so was the need for military clothing thus producing many government contracts for Alpha to construct goods for the military forces.

    They soon became a dominant manufacturer of numerous styles of jackets that have become legendary and iconic articles in both the military and fashion industries. They have produced clothing for all branches of the military and were frequently consulted with regarding development of uniforms and gear for aviators, soldiers, and sailors to continually stay ahead of the curve in giving our military personnel the ability to function and survive in the extreme climates where confrontations were starting to arise.
