Ever since the human discovered that clothes made from wool can keep them warm in the winters, they have looking for a fabric that can keep them cool in the summer. So far, linens and cotton fabrics are regarded as the best fabrics to wear during the sultry season. However, this new shirt based on the heat-regulation technology developed by NASA could be the future of summer clothing if it does success in effectively keeping wearers “cool”.
The Apollo shirt is developed by Ministry of Supply, a startup that has its roots at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology and uses a technology borrowed from space suits to create a versatile fabric that can be tailored into any form of business wear. The proprietary special fabric blend keeps the body at a cozy temperature using a moisture-absorbent functionality and an anti-microbial construction.
This fabric, in effect, both absorbs as well as repels heat to keep the skin temperature of the wearer remain unaffected by the temperature of the air that comes in contact with the fabric. The wrinkle-free, ready to wear Apollo shirt has been in development for over 18 months now and will be available for pre-order beginning in mid-July at a price of $105 only.
