About Ministry of Supply
Ministry of Supply is an innovative, high performance men’s fashion brand, that was launched in 2012 by former MIT students who had a mission to help men “dress smarter and work smarter”.
By combining the arts of science, technology, and design, Ministry of Supply is helping to shape the future of men’s fashion by incorporating some of the same temperature regulating material that NASA astronauts use in their clothing (which the company is licensed to utilize in the production of their apparel line).
The Boston Globe published an article stating that “The Ministry of Supply’s goal is to uses new materials, aerospace, robotic engineering, and thermal analysis to create a new category in the design of better-fitting men’s business attire.” [Source: Boston Globe]
In addition to producing great-fitting apparel that’s suitable for both workdays and weekends, the company strives “to solve the problems that have been inherent to everyday clothing for far too long, like poor fit and sweat stains that can ruin your day.”
The team proudly states that they have “developed a process to produce garments that are better made, better performing, and better suited for modern life.” Since men want easy-to-wear, low-maintenance apparel that works for them, MOS has created a line of “essential garments”… “that actually fit the human body and are easy to care for and wear, no matter what you choose to do in them.”
Plus, their fabrics are so high-performing and comfortable to wear that one of the company’s Co-Founders (Gihan Amarasiriwardena) ran a half marathon (and even broke a Guinness World Record), while wearing one of their business suits!
Since guys have a unique perspective on what makes an apparel brand great, we’re also featuring testimonials from a loyal Ministry of Supply customer (James Molinaro from Carmel, California), to share the real scoop on why the Ministry of Supply apparel line is the perfect fit for active, professional men who care about their appearance.
To show the versatility and wear-ability of the Ministry of Supply clothing line, we’ve taken James down to the world-renowned area of Big Sur, California for an epic adventure that would get any guy excited.
From off-roading on rugged terrain in a vintage truck and kicking back in a river to dining and relaxing at an upscale resort, James shows us how easily their clothing transitions from work-to-play.
As an active, professional man who is particular about the design and function of the apparel he wears, James has proudly been a long-time customer of Ministry of Supply.
“Being in the financial services industry, I always need to dress my best – both in the office and running around town meeting clients. As a busy guy, I prefer clothes that are low-maintenance and don’t require constant dry cleaning. What I love about their apparel is that I can get multiple wears out of the clothes before washing (since they wick away sweat and prevent odors). Plus, the clothes are extremely wrinkle-resistant and temperature-regulating.
Bottom line – I always look sharp and feel confident wearing Ministry of Supply, which makes it the perfect work-to-weekend apparel line for me.”

Ministry of Supply Father’s Day Gifts
Apollo Polo Shirt ($65): Both fitted and comfortable, this wrinkle-resistant polo shirt is created from a temperature-regulating knit blend, making it a great fit for all types of weather (including hot Summer days). James says, “it has a clean, classic American look with a modern, European fit”.
Mercury SVK V-Neck Sweater ($125): The perfect layering piece for all types of weather, this stylish sweater is a blend of Merino wool and temperature-regulating fibers that retain and release heat according to shifts in climate. James jokingly refers to it as “Snippets of Zeus’ beard woven into a sweater”.
Archive Dress Shirt ($110): This dress shirt looks impeccable from morning-to-night, as it’s created out of a moisture-wicking woven fabric with enough stretch to run a marathon. James loves this shirt because “of its ability to stay crisp throughout the day.”
Aviator 2 Shorts ($105): Shorts should fit your physique while enabling you to move freely while still looking tidy and tailored. As a California guy, shorts are a must in James’ wardrobe. James says, “for a guy who never skips ‘leg day’, these shorts have a well-tailored fit on my muscular legs, without being baggy or too tight”.
MRKT Laptop Sleeve ($75): To protect your laptop, this computer case is the best investment you could make. It is durable, water resistant and colorfast, and features interior and exterior multi-sized document sleeves for easy organization.
Aviator 2 Jacket ($350): The perfect blazer for business, travel, and pleasure, this jacket is flexible, breathable, and packable. James calls this jacket his “new go-to for EDC-wear (‘everyday carry”).”
Aviator 2 Pants ($140): When you spend at least 8 hours a day in an office, you want to look great and feel comfortable. That’s why these pants are the ultimate work-wear piece, since they’re created from a warp-knit material that is lightweight and flexible. James says these pants “have a tailored look, while retaining unrestricted movement due to their stretch, which gives me a feeling of freedom and comfort.”
