NASA Helps Professionals Keep Their Cool
8/16/2012

Ministry of Supply's co-founders model the company's new line of dress shirts, which use a combination of materials -- including technology developed by NASA -- to keep sweat away from a person's body and regulate heat so they are sweat- and odor-resistant. They are also made of a stretchy fabric that conforms to a person's body, making them more comfortable than traditional dress shirts.   (Source: Ministry of Supply)

@Jack Rupert, PE--A spot on observation about the emergence of new and varied technologies from space exploration.  As for me, I would definitely wear an Apollo shirt, as summer here in the South is beastly!

Another Space Program Offshoot

Another interesting non-astronaut product with it's origins in the apace industry.  It's a shame that the government and people in general don't see that it isn't just about studying the surface of the moon and that there are real outgrowths from the science and the technology developed to support the science.

Kevin, I am curious about one thing: How do you guage the performance of this shirt in a measurable (quantitative) way? Is there any way to tell how well it's working?

This is a really exciting development in my book.  As a runner and avid backpacker, the prospect of a shirt that keeps me cool, doesn't stink and doesn't leave me feeling sticky at the end of the day sounds too good be be true. After you've saturated the dress shirt market, be sure to turn your attention back to the sports performance arena.  We'll be waiting!

Kevin, do you foresee that $100 pricetag coming down as economies of scale kick in? If so, I'll be getting in line to buy one.

Kevin,

How did you come by the technology? It is tech transfer from NASA? Is it the public domain? I would imagine some of your procedures are proprietary, but the basic technology must have been available to you.
