The menswear items in this post are cool in so many ways: how they’re created, how they look and how they’re literally cool, as in, they work on keeping your body temperature cool and comfortable in every climate.

The concept behind Ministry of Supply makes it so appealing to every high-tech man. Their line of clothes combine science and technology to bring performance tech into classic clothing items that give you comfort and style all day long. They use scientific research, aerospace engineering and robotic engineered knitting to create their clothing items. Using patent-pending fabrics and designs, they turned everyone’s favorite classic apparel into the ultimate comfort wear, without compromising style along the way.

Here are some of the amazing technology behind Ministry of Supply’s clothes:

  • Phase Change Materials for Heat Regulation:

Your body’s temperature changes through-out the day. MoS uses Phase Change Materials, the type of material used in NASA spacesuits for temperature regulation, to create their clothes. Your MoS apparel will cool you down when it’s hot and heat up when it’s cold. You’ll be enjoying perfect temperature no matter what.

  • Stretch Fabrics:

If you’ve ever worn a shirt that is too stiff for you to move in comfortably, you’ll appreciate MoS’ 2-way and 4-way stretch fabrics which add movement to the clothes. MoS clothes stretch just enough for you to move without any restriction, they also remain tucked even with hard movements.

  • Javafresh – Odor Fighting Technology:

Javafresh is a type of fabric that incorporates recycled coffee grounds, which work on absorbing odor molecules. Thanks to Javafresh, you’ll feel fresh for a longer time and enjoy your day without worrying about any odor issues.

  • Ventilation:

By using Thermal Imaging, MoS identified the body’s hot spots to see where ventilation is most needed to give you a refreshing feel as you about your day. Depending on the item, laser-cut ventilation is applied in a way that allows air in, but remains unnoticeable in the garment.

Must-Have Ministry of Supply Apparel for Men:

  • 4-way stretch fabric that is also wrinkle-free.

When making the Atlas socks, Pressure Mapping has been used to identify where pressure is applied and where extra support is needed when you move.
