Based in Alpha’s iconic MA-1 Fighter Pilot jacket and N-3B Parka, originally created for the U.S Air Force, the designs have been reworked using The Cords’ signature premium corduroy fabrication.
“At The Cords, we’re collaborating with brands that stand for something authentic and real,” says Omar Varts, brand director, The Cords & Co. “The exciting thing for us is exploring a classic silhouette – for example, Alpha Industries’ MA-1 bomber jacket which has been produced for decades. Flipping that into a corduroy fabrication means that we can contribute meaningfully to a partnership and we are very much looking forward to introducing this collection to corduroy fans out there,” he adds.
The two unisex styles, one bomber and one parka, come in colours shaped by The Cords & Co’s signature earthy palette – nutmeg, black and military green, and features the familiar Alpha design elements including the iconic “Remove Before Flight” detailing.
The bomber jacket is reversible with Alpha’s Indian orange high-visibility lining.
The jackets are available from today in all The Cords & Co flagship stores, online, as well as The Listener in Frankfurt, Working Class Hero in the UK, Norgaard in Denmark, Nordiska Kompaniet in Sweden and Sneakerstuff worldwide.
