This month Selfridges sees two influential brands combine forces to create a truely retro aesthetic in the form of Dr. Martens x Alpha Industries exclusive MA-1 flight jackets.
Using the exact construction and stitch details as the famous MA-1 flight jacket from Alpha Industries, two limited edition styles have been created and are available in Black or Oxblood Nylon; both sporting the signature Dr. Martens striking yellow lining.
Other considered details include the shoe brand’s leather zip pull, and the use of the famous heel loop usually found at the back of a pair of DM’s.
By working with a brand that was involved and influenced by British subculture from its earliest days, Dr. Martens has created a collaboration that celebrates Skinheads; the hugely influential fashion tribe of the 1960s and their meticulous attention to detail. Collaborating seamlessly with the famous flight jackets that first made their way into Europe as imports of American army surplus in the 1960s and became a staple subcultural item on British streets.
