An iconic silhouette from Alpha Industries, the MA-1 Bomber combines its rich heritage with The Cords & Co.'s contemporary mission to bring corduroy back into core menswear. 

The Cords and Co. x Alpha Industries MA-1 Bomber 

Alpha Industries was founded in 1959 in Knoxville, Tennessee. They began as a contractor for the United States military making flight jackets and vests with some of the latest advancements in functional fabrics (back then, anyway). Some real working class heroes, they began making their jackets with only a few employees using some leased sewing machines, but the company found massive expansion when the army demanded a higher level of quality control for their garments, and Alpha were one of the few able to maintain the constitution in their jackets that pilots needed. The MA-1 Bomber became the official flight jacket of the Air Force with its durable polyester and fireproof nylon canvas. Here we have that very bomber take flight with Britain's corduroy crusaders The Cords & Co. who are establishing the vintage material back into contemporary menswear. 

This edition of the MA-1 has all of the classic trimmings that it's known for. The 100% nylon lining is lightweight, durable, and sits comfortably to the skin. The fluorescent lining is paired with a thick, 8-wale 100% cotton corduroy in the shell, which is warm, tough and surprisingly flexible for its weight. These layers hold an extremely lightweight insulation of 100% synthetic polyester for winterized warmth. With a classic ribbed bomber neck, the jacket also has a ribbed hem and cuffs for a flexible fit. The actual fit itself is fairly regular, meeting hip-length, although the style of the MA-1 is baggy and relaxed on the torso and arms. 

The jacket has two button-up handwarmers as well as two security pockets on the inside, and on the arm it has Alpha's iconic zip-up pocket, which features two branded tags - Alpha's classic 'Remove Before Flight' slogan and The Cords and Co.'s proud name. This jacket is absolutely amazing for chilled weather and adds a sense of vintage style to your outfit. A small production, the Alpha collaboration is a limited edition, so make sure to grab it while you can. Not recommended for actual combat, however. You might ruin that sweet wale.

    Stock Location

    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
