For 20 years, the FADER has been the definitive voice of music and the lifestyle that surrounds it. To celebrate this anniversary, we’ve partnered with Alpha Industries to create a limited edition jacket that personifies that fearless ethos.
A special version of their MA-1 fighter pilot jacket, the FADER x Alpha bomber jacket is constructed from mid-weight, water-resistant flight nylon for a stylish and comfortable update to the historical piece. Available in Small, Medium, Large, X-and-XXL, this Replica Blue-colored wardrobe staple was kept as close as possible to the classic military specifications, with the numerous pockets, MA-1 utility sleeve pocket, and signature red "Remove Before Flight" flag all present.
Just as The FADER was the first print publication to be released on iTunes, the MA-1 fighter pilot jacket was the first military flight jacket to cross over into civilian fashion, making this collaboration especially representative of FADER’s forward-thinking ideals for the past 20 years, and indicative of what is to come in the next 20.
The limited-edition, water-resistant reversible jacket collaboration is available now on the FADER’s online shop.
