Feel Good Friday – Ministry of Supply

When a menswear brand is birthed at MIT we take notice. Ministry of Supply was launched in 2012 with the mission to ‘invent the future of business apparel.’ There are engineers, designers and material scientists all on board to make the best shirt for you to wear to work and feel damn good.

Thermal Analysis:

These guys use heat mapping to create a garment that manages your body heat as best it can.

Aerospace Engineering:

We all are not built the same, so why use one fit model to design a shirt for a plethora of fellas? Ministry of Supply uses Photogrammetric Strain Analysis to understand how the body moves and to make a shirt that will work for all.

Innovative Materials:

Here is where the ‘feel good’ part comes in. They use recycled polyester for their Apollo shirt and spent coffee grounds for their Atlas socks. Yep, you heard that right. Coffee has buckets of carbon in it so it binds to odor molecules to reduce, well, odor.

There is also abrasion resistant fabric in their Aviator Chinos and wrinkle free fabric in their Archive dress shirt. Oh, and their Apollo 2 Dress Shirt features NASA PCM which is the same heat control they use in space suits.

Ministry of Supply donates to Career Gear, contributing high-quality items from the company’s line of performance professional products. Ministry of Supply’s goal is to help men looking to enter the workforce use these stylish products to build their professional wardrobe and look great in interviews as they work to advance their careers.

While the company doesn’t offer a full range yet: button downs, tees, a chino and socks for now, we know that these kids are toiling in the lab to make the most high tech suit out there. We can’t wait.

This man fell overboard, and wearing a watch helped save his life
This may be the main reason you should be wearing a watch
watch saves man who fell overboard islands surrounded by boats

We talk a lot about the importance of wearing a watch. It is an elegant way to show class and sophistication. Since World War II, they have been the go-to men's accessories. While women wear everything from bracelets to rings, necklaces to earrings, men keep it simple, and many of us opt for a watch. But a watch can be more than just an elegant piece of jewelry; it can be a tool, something you can use to get the job done. And in one very interesting instance, something that can save your life.

Cambridge 61-year-old Will Fransen embarked on a fishing trip off the coast near the Alderman Islands, and it turned into a nightmare. After snagging what he expected was a marlin, Fransen fell overboard. As they do, the boat starts to drift away from him, and he soon realizes that he isn't going to be able to catch it. Finding he was thirty nautical miles away from the shore and without his forty-foot boat, Fransen found himself in the middle of a real-life horror movie.
