Contemporary denim brand 3sixteen teams up with American heritage brand Alpha Industries to rework classic military designs, including the modernized authentic silhouette of the M-65 field jacket and the M-59 Fishtail Parka.
Alpha Industries was attracted to 3sixteen's stylish presence in street culture and felt sure that the "impeccable herringbone fabric [...] would translate seamlessly to Alpha." The fashion capsule is made in the United States and honors the military with elegant and low key aesthetic. Yet, the 3sixteen x Alpha Industries silhouettes stand out due to their deeply sophisticated approach to streetwear, as well as the recognizable tailored fit and unmatched durability in the design of the M-65 field jacket. The 2018 Spring/Summer capsule definitely puts a contemporary utilitarian spin on the millennial wardrobe.
