Taylor Stitch doesn't embark upon very many collaborations, but when they do you can be sure it's something worth adding to your wardrobe. Case in point: this new jacket produced in partnership with Alpha Industries.
Alpha, founded in Knoxville, Tennessee in the 1950s, has been making jackets for the U.S. military for over half a century, as well as civilian versions that are equally as cool. Field and flight jackets are their specialty, as well as vests. Which brings us to the TS x Alpha Industries ALS/92. The original ALS/92 started life as a purpose-built liner for field jackets so soldiers could "quickly adapt to inconsistent climates in war zones." But the piece's classic wavy quilted finish, distinctive patch pockets, and relaxed cardigan-style neckline quickly led to its being worn on its own.
Working alongside the team at Alpha Industries, Taylor Stitch has now reimagined the ALS/92 in a cool new color called Raven, using 100% recycled and organic materials. Now it's nothing less than a "rugged, responsibly-built piece of history that you can cherish for years to come."
Lightweight, wind- and water-repellent, it features a 100% recycled nylon shell and lining, recycled polyester fill for insulation, and 100% organic cotton binding and facing. Taylor Stitch also added custom pockets including roomier hand-warmers and a handy new chest pocket.
You can still use it under a heavier piece if the weather calls for it. But the new ALS/92 doesn't need any help keeping you perfectly comfortable and looking your best.
