As far as music and fashion collaborations go, a whiff of authenticity is all too often lost somewhere between the emails sent from each partner's marketing team, while the former is traditionally the bearer of the predominant credentials. Or such is the perception.
Boasting a 'Jungle' emblazoned MA1 jacket from the beginning, the former has made good of an old school idea and enlisted the originals to help them along the way, thus producing a piece of genuinely wearable band merch that is, according to the former Clash cover stars, "Perfect for our style."
"Alpha is an iconic brand," they continue, "collaborating with them was a no brainer as we love the jacket!"
Hold onto it long enough and we reckon it has the potential to become a conversation starter, a la those rare Spice Girls bomber jackets that barely ever do the rounds.
