Ministry of Supply Apollo Shirt Uses NASA Tech and MIT Brains to Keep You Comfy

There’s an old saying that goes something like “it’s better to look good than to feel good,” but if the guys at Ministry of Design have their way, you’ll be able to do both, thanks to their new high-tech shirts.

Kicked off by a team of four athletes from MIT, Ministry of Supply has engineered a dress shirt, dubbed “Apollo” that offers four key features: heat management, moisture management, odor control and dynamic motion.

By using the same phase-change materials NASA uses for some of its space suits, they’re able to pull excess body heat away from your body and “store it” in the fabric. As soon as you enter a cool environment, the heat releases, keeping your body temperature consistent. The fabric in their shirts also will wick moisture away from your body, and keep you from stinking thanks to an anti-microbial coating. The team also used strain analysis to determine how to make a shirt that fits well and moves comfortably throughout the day. Plus, the fabric is wrinkle free too.

You can get an Apollo shirt in your choice of color and size by heading over to Kickstarter and pledging at least $95(USD) – a savings of $34 off of the planned $129 retail price. In addition, Ministry of Supply is offering a more basic version of the shirt – minus the heat regulation, for $80, and layering pieces for $25 to $45.
