Playboy Enterprises and American heritage brand Alpha Industries have teamed up to create a limited-edition military style jacket, Vandy-1 MA-1.
The style pays homage to Playboy’s 60 year-long affiliation with the US military and can be purchased from PlayboyShop.com or later this month at www.Alphaindustries.com for $225.
All profits will benefit the Warrior Flight Team, a non-profit organization, funding grants and scholarships for wounded veterans pursuing post-service careers in aviation and other fields.
“Since Playboy launched in 1953, our iconic Rabbit Head logo has been associated with military units in all branches of the US military, including the VX fighter squadrons, where it was adorned on the tails of each fighter jet,” said Scott Killian, Playboy’s chief brand officer.
“This very special jacket is the flagship offering for a whole series of products which pay tribute to our historic association with the US military which we plan to roll out in the coming months.”
Mike Cirker, CEO of Alpha Industries, added: “Partnering with an equally iconic heritage brand like Playboy gives Alpha Industries the opportunity to reach even more fans of military heritage with an exclusive item.
“We know this style will resonate across the board to help bring even more awareness to a great cause with the Warrior Flight Team.”
