At the end of WWII, a fashion trend emerged among soldiers returning to the U.S. from the Pacific Theater. Looking for a memento of their time abroad to bring home, many servicemen took their government issued jackets to local craftsmen to be embroidered with popular local designs featuring dragons, tigers, eagles and even maps of the areas they served in. These "souvenir" jackets continued to be popular with soldiers stationed throughout Asia in the years since.
Alpha Industries pays homage to time-honored military fashion trend with the MA-1 Souvenir Shinto Jacket. This slim fit bomber has a flight nylon shell with embroidered images of the Shinto Gods, the Japanese gods of rain and thunder & lightening, on the front and back. It is water resistant and fully reversible, with a camel colored nylon lining. Other features include Alpha's signature zippered utility pocket on the sleeve with a red "Remove Before Flight" tag, two lower and interior welt pockets with snap closures and striped knit rib collar, cuffs and waistband.
