Fall/Winter 2015 Essential: Ben Sherman x Alpha Industries Bomber Jacket

FLIGHTS OF FANCY. Two heritage brands, one mission: Ben Sherman taps iconic flight jacket maker Alpha Industries to inject the former’s sharp British twist to the latter’s signature creation, the MA-1 flight jacket


Ben Sherman x Alpha Industries Bomber Jacket


Initially introduced in the mid-1950s, the jacket was the flight jacket of U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots that was designed to withstand extreme temperatures.

While still maintaining the original shape and features, the Ben Sherman’s bomber version is lined in the brand’s gingham motif and available in three different colors.

There are also dual branding tabs on the pocket, zippered utility pockets and zip pulls, which make this love child of British and American sartorial classics one fly jacket to have.
