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 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.
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!
We're actually offering our Agent Shirt, which is also moisture wicking and breathable for $85.

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.
Why would the biggest connector company in the world design and build the first fully functional 3D-printed motorcycle? To show TE Connectivity's engineers what the technology can really do in making working load-bearing production parts, and free up their thinking when approaching design problems.
The enhanced ST8 includes new functionality designed to help users accelerate design speed and improve the user’s ability to leverage synchronous technology. The update offers greater flexibility in choice of platform and purchasing options, according to the company.
“How can European standards affect me, especially since I only use machines built in the US?” This is a common question, and one way to answer this is to look at how machine safety is enforced, where the information comes from, and how well you can prove you followed the regulations.
