In November 1959, Wynn helped Alpha take over the sublease on a small factory space on 11th Street in downtown Knoxville from the Levi Strauss Company, a space which had been previously used by Dobbs Industries. After Wynn helped Gelber arrange for the lease of sewing equipment and skilled operators, Alpha Industries was ready to begin production. While Samuel Gelber began to bid on Department of Defense contracts for Alpha, Wynn arranged a subcontracting agreement to manufacture the MA-1 flight jacket so that Alpha's 35 employees would have immediate work. It was only one month later, in December 1959, that Alpha Industries received its first Department of Defense contracts.

Disappointed Review by Brave Dave

I really liked all but one thing about this jacket!! It was purchased as a gift for a Vietnam buddy who lives in Mesa Arizona. The dislike is that it is for a climate range of 20 to forty degrees. This is stated in the write up which I missed. It would be better to say right up front that it is a medium weight jacket, in my case I wanted a summer weight jacket. It would be easier for both of us since we both now have to pay the shipping and we are both less than fully satisfied. (Posted on 2/25/16)
