My biggest complaint against apparel and garment design is that sometimes fashion and function don’t see eye to eye. Clothes can sometimes look really good, but might just not be comfortable or utilitarian. When they are, they tend to sacrifice aesthetics. Take the jacket for instance. You’ve got, on the one hand, the formal jacket that looks great in the workplace but doesn’t fare well outdoors, and the hoodie or travel-jacket which is comfortable, can withstand inclement weather, and often has more storage options, but doesn’t look as dapper as a formal jacket does. Armed with a design brief of wanting to make a jacket that is both stylish and functional both indoors and outdoors, the guys at PinFin Fashion developed the Alpha Jacket, a travel jacket for the alpha-human who wants the best of all worlds.
PinFin’s Alpha Jacket treads the fine line between being a jacket that pairs wonderfully with the clothes you have, while also cleverly concealing multiple features, from hidden pockets to a water-pouch, to even a detachable hoodie with an integrated neck-pillow for the seasoned traveler. Alpha Jacket’s fabric is both stylish yet waterproof and wind-resistant, and its high-collar design and cut gives it the appeal of a casual blazer, but with reflective piping and a durable design that you can comfortably wear anywhere in the outdoors. Each jacket is armed with 8 pockets on the inside, for everything from your phone to your power-bank, keys, sunglasses, wallet, and even an iPad. Plus, a dedicated pouch for carrying a water-bladder to sip from while on the go. Pockets on the outside of the jacket find their place on the breast as well as the sleeve, secured with concealed YKK zippers that match the quality build of the rest of the jacket.
Alpha Jacket旨在真正支持经常旅行的人。Alpha夹克由Dan Truong和Linh Tran夫妇设计，他们经历了长距离的恋爱关系，所以经常旅行。对于经常旅行的人，Alpha夹克配有可拆卸的连帽衫，该衫有内置的颈枕（您可以在记忆海绵或微珠之间选择），以帮助您度过长时间的通勤路程；夹克有四种颜色可供选择，像休闲西装外套一样，可以根据自己的身材剪裁出轮廓，而且还为您提供了储物的优势，因此您将无需背包！
Alpha Jacket was built to truly support the often-traveler. Designed by Dan Truong and Linh Tran, a couple who endured a long-distance relationship and found themselves often traveling to meet each other, the Alpha Jacket sits at the intersection of “jacket that’s perfect for traveling” and “jacket I can step out for social events in”. For someone who finds themselves traveling often, the Alpha Jacket comes with a detachable hoodie that has a built-in neck pillow (you can choose between memory foam or microbeads) helping you get through long commutes, and for the alpha-human who wants to look their best, the jacket comes in a variety of four colors to choose from, with a cut that defines your silhouette just like a casual blazer would, but also gives you the advantage of storage so you don’t need to lug a backpack around with your stuff!
