After unveiling a Marvel Venom x Puma Cell sneaker in honor of Tom Hardy’s Venom movie premiere, BAIT has announced a matching BAIT x Marvel Venom x Alpha Industries MA-1 Reversible Jacket for NYCC.
Like the sneaker, the jacket features a huge blacked-out silicon Venom symbol print on one side while the other side flaunts the Venom symbiote’s iconic eyes, teeth, and tongue — complete with BAIT branding. The embroidered logos of the collaborating partners run down the inner zipper flap for a unique touch.
This Alpha Industries MA-1 jacket is both reversible and water-resistant. Based on the original flight jackets of the 1940s like the B-15 and MA-1, which were worn by the U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots, the MA-1 features a nylon shell, nylon lining, 100% polyester fill, and Ottoman knit cuffs.
While many know that Alpha Industries products generally come with a red “Remove Before Flight” tag (flag/zipper extension) at the arm, this jacket comes with three — the most Alpha Industries has ever put on a product. The usual “Remove Before Flight” tag is used while one of the additional tags reads “MARVEL | BAIT” with the Venom logo. However, the best tag may be the pink “VENOM | BAIT” with Alpha and Marvel co-branding.
The BAIT x Marvel Venom x Alpha Industries MA-1 Reversible Jacket will retail for $250 and release in very limited numbers at BAIT’s New York Comic Con booth (#115) Thursday, October 4. The jacket will also be available at all BAIT chapter stores and online at baitme.com.
Tons of Venom gear, including tees, hoodies, and hats, are also available at baitme.com. Prices range from $32 to $70.
