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.

Good for small frames Review by Romo

Overall a quality coat. This is slim fit and they mean it. The sleeves are tight so if you have hefty arms it won't fit. The zipper is stiff but loosened up with Chapstick. Any wax would work. I usually wear small but I ordered medium and got a good fit. I am small framed and thin. If you are not the coat will be too small. (Posted on 2/11/15)

Sleeves are really skinny and uncomfortable. Review by Deb

The overall quality of the jacket is really nice. The shell fabric seems very sturdy. The hood very effective. But trying on the jacket....I found the sleeves to be really tight. I am small boned have very slender arms and it was uncomfortably snug in the sleeves from my upper arm to my wrists. With the sleeves I would not recommend this to purchase for anyone.

I GAVE THIS JACKET 3 STARS BECAUSE THE SLEEVE CIRCUMFERENCE RUINS THE PRICE, VALUE, AND QUALITY OF THE JACKET. (Posted on 1/28/15)

Got just it in time for the wintery mix and I think I am the warmest person on the mountain. I do wish though, you made them for pets. (-: (Though my dog could probably fit a man's small.) I'm very pleased, ecstatic and love the cold just so I can wear my jacket kind of feeling.

Great parka for price Review by Paul

Coat looks great. I am 6' tall, 180 pounds and L fits perfect. Zipper is a little hard to get started at first but once you get used to it, it is not really an issue. I have had coat for two weeks and quality seems good. Coat is also warm - out in 20 degree weather and was comfortable. (Posted on 11/19/14)

Just what he wanted Review by BeccaTG

This is a second hand review since I gave this jacket to my son, per his request, for his birthday. I was worried about negative reviews on the zipper and the pockets but he is completely satisfied with both and having had a similar Alpha jacket previously, said it was like "slipping back into his comfortable skin!"
