Military Inspired Apparel


The ALS/92 is a legendary piece of military history. It is unquestionably the most instantly recognisable garment of its kind and this tailor made liner for field jackets made it easy for soldiers to quickly adapt to inconsistent climates in war zones. While it was first issued as a companion piece, the ALS/92’s unique visual impact – with it’s classic quilted finish, distinctive patch pockets, and relaxed cardigan-style neckline – rapidly saw it emerge as a legendary piece of gear in its own right.

The Taylor Stitch x Alpha Industries ALS/92 Jacket ($138) is made from a 3-oz. 100% Recycled Nylon shell and lining and a 100% Recycled Polyester fill. Working alongside the team at Alpha Industries, Taylor Stitch have reimagined this treasured template in a brand new Raven colourway using 100% recycled and organic materials. Whether you’re pairing it with The M-51 in Navy Reverse Sateen or rocking it by itself, the ALS/92 is a rugged, responsibly-built piece of history that you will be a go-to for many years to come.

True to its military origins, utility is central to the ALS/92’s design—it’s lightweight, wind- and water-repellent, and simple to care for. While the silhouette remains largely unchanged, we upgraded the core components with an eye towards Responsibility, opting for a recycled nylon shell and lining, recycled polyester fill for insulation, organic cotton binding and facing, and recycled polyester ribbing on the cuffs. We also developed our own custom pockets—including roomier hand-warmers and a handy new chest pocket—better suited to modern civilian applications. 


Versatile Performer
