Alpha Industries is an American clothing manufacturer founded 1959 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Initially a contractor to the United States military, it is fair to say they know a thing or two about military garb.
This is a Vintage Civilian Tiger Stripe M-65 style Jacket with a great well worn look and detachable onion quilt liner. Manufactured by Alpha Industries, Inc. Made in the USA, this is an iconic field jacket.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear, discolouration, and abrasion throughout. There is a minor stitch repair on the upper left arm (as worn). The jacket comes with a great washed and worn look that gives it bags of character. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
