We've definitely got you in mind! We haven't quite developed hotspots, but we'll let you know...
One of the best ways to check out the fabric is our new send a swatch program. We'll be putting it on the website soon, but if you send me (email@example.com) your address, I can send you a free swatch of the fabric.
Thanks so much! We're so excited to hear what you think about the shirts! The cost of dress shirts in the USA varies widely, from bargain woven shirts, up to hundreds of dollars at some retailers. We view ours as premium, but not luxury.
If you do decide to purchase them in multiples, please contact our product team at firstname.lastname@example.org - they'll be able to give you our most recent offers re:international shipping.
The move into apparel was a long time coming for us - it's something that we took on, actually after multiple team members experienced this issue. We have a background in product design, having so fortunately worked with firms such as IDEO and Apple.
Tech for the shirts is something we have long been developing and testing. We are fortunate to work with one of the best textile mills in the country, and have worked closely with us to specify our unique fabric. In terms of technology/testing - we are the only ones doing it in this way in business apparel.
One of our founders, Gihan, actually sewed his own line of outdoor apparel as a boy scout growing up. He also sewed our first shirt. Another, Kit, worked with Lululemon on the finance side. Aman also is an avid sock enthusiast.
Thanks for asking - let us know if we can help in any other way!
Thanks so much! We're definitely focused on striking fear into the hearts of deodorant companies... well maybe not as crazy as that :)
On a serious note though, we're very excited about something that is that cool and comfortable.
The shirts are available at ministryofsupply.com - we've got a few on backorder because of our recent Kickstarter campaign, but feel free to email us directly at email@example.com with any questions you've got.
Our textile manufacturers do extensive testing, and we have yet to see any allergic reactions. That said - if you are allergic to synthetics or polyesters I would avoid them. If you're really curious, you can always order one and return it (free shipping both ways, any reason)
Definitely shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 617.651.2340 if you have further questions,
Thanks so much Charles! We're so excited to be working on a project that captures that kind of imagination; we really approached this from a sense of - "Where can we find this?" When we couldn't find what we wanted, we decided to create it and start a company around it when other people got excited.
Kevin thanks for the discount coupons. I have just ordered one Apollo Shirt ($105), but they are charging $25 extra for international shipping. Letís see how itís going to work it out. I donít know the cost of normal shirts in US, but with these price I can buy minimum 6 normal shirts in my local currency.
Wal-Mart will hold its second Made in the USA Open Call July 7-8, at its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. The event will be a repeat effort by the worldís biggest seller of consumer goods to increase the amount of US-made products it sells in Wal-Mart stores, in Samís Club members-only wholesale outlets, and on walmart.com.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesnít come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
Thereís a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
