Get to Know
You hear a lot of menswear designers talk about not finding the clothes they wanted to wear, so they designed the pieces they were looking for themselves. This is kind of the same story, but the guys behind Ministry of Supply are athletes, hackers and MIT alums. And they're not simply interested in making handsome clothes. The goal is to address the modern man's desire for fit, performance and ease of care—all without sacrificing style or quality. And that desire is real: The brand launched via Kickstarter and they surpassed their $30,000 goal by $400,000.
After all, why shouldn't our daily, professional wardrobes be as comfortable, durable and sweat-camouflaging as our favorite performance gear? That's the aim of Ministry of Supply and they're making it happen by combining space-age technology and old school tailor techniques. In their labs, they analyze natural body movements and use thermal scans to study how clothes interact with body heat. And the clothes themselves are made with some impressively futuristic tech, too. Here's a closer look.
The Apollo Polo
- Four-way stretch for ultimate, full body movability.
- Crafted with the same temperature-regulating material as the Gemini dress shirt.
- Engineered to wick sweat away quickly, so it evaporates from the shirt's surface.
The Aviator Chinos
- Grippy urethane waistband keeps your shirt tucked.
- Machine-washable fabric is made with 4-way stretch for movement.
- Coated with a water-resistant polymer that causes liquid to bead immediately upon contact, so the fabric stays dry.
