Alpha Industries x New Era presents a new collection of headwear and bomber jackets

Words by Karan Teli

Since 1920, New Era has been handcrafting the finest headwear in the world. Today, with apparel and accessories lines, the brand is a market leader rooted in sports and an influencer of street and lifestyle culture around the globe. A name synonymous with headwear and unarguably the world’s number one headwear brand; New Era announces the next instalment of its collaboration with the original MA-1 flight jacket manufacturer, Alpha Industries. The collaboration includes taking pieces from the iconic styles of Alpha Industries and New Era with MLB team logos and merging the two worlds together like nothing seen before.

The latest collection includes an update of Alpha Industries’ classic MA-1 flight jacket with embroidered patches featuring the MLB New York Yankees and World Series logos; think of it as a varsity and flight jacket fusion. Available in navy, the inside features a green camo print, a nod to Alpha Industries’ well known military heritage and aesthetic.

For the headwear, New Era’s iconic 59FIFTY and Trucker silhouettes receive the Alpha treatment with the brand’s symbolic red ‘REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT’ tag attached to the left side of each cap above the New Era flag logo. A total of twelve cap styles across the two silhouettes form part of the collection with MLB teams such as Houston Astros, LA Dodgers, Oakland Athletics and NY Yankees all honored. Each 59FIFTY is available in the classic MLB team colourways while the Trucker style follows a uniform black base with olive green MLB logos. 

The collection is available to shop on and select stockists.
