Pointer Brand is a 98 year old work wear company founded by L.C. King in Bristol, Tennessee. The company is run today by members of the fourth generation of the King family.

Pointer Brand products are 100% made in America. The company uses 12 ounce denim from Georgia or Texas to produce their blue jeans and chore jackets.

All other components of Pointer’s garments are locally sourced from the American South. The thread comes from North Carolina, the buttons from Kentucky, the zippers from Georgia and the pocket linings from South Carolina.

AMERICANA Classic Vintage is proud to exclusively carry Pointer Brand, which is an all-American original denim brand with a deep work wear heritage.

Alpha Industries M-65 Field Jacket

Based in Knoxville, Tennessee, Alpha Industries has been making clothing and military gear for the U.S. Army since the 1940s.  One of the company’s most famous designs is the M-65 field jacket.  The famous jacket’s predecessor was the M-43, whose design was first drafted in 1940 and finalized in 1943.

In 1959, the U.S. Department of Defense requested that Alpha Industries redesign its military field jacket to meet the needs of aerial-based campaigns and rougher terrain.  Alpha met the challenge with a more technologically-engineered design and construction that was more durable, comfortable and reliable.

In 1965, the M-65 was introduced and is still the workhorse for the American Infantry to this day. The company manufactures the exact same garments for military use as it does for surplus goods, with the only difference being one bar (military production) or three bars (civilian production) on the label.  Other than this small detail, all fabrics, specifications and construction are the same.

The M-65 has made its way into popular American culture as the jacket Robert DeNiro’s character wore in the film “Taxi Driver.”
