Ministry of Supply

American Clothing Brand
Brand Profile

Ministry of Supply, founded in 2012 in Boston, Massachusetts, by MIT graduates Aman Advani, Gihan Amarasiriwardena, Kit Hickey, and Kevin Rustagi, revolutionized business attire with a high-tech approach. The founders, equipped with engineering, science, and design backgrounds, set out to infuse innovation into traditional business wear. The company’s name draws inspiration from the fictional character Q from the James Bond series, who led the British Ministry of Supply during World War II.

The company kicked off with the launch of the Apollo dress shirt in 2012, which featured phase change material to regulate temperature. This initial success led to rapid growth, and by 2013, Ministry of Supply had raised $1 million in seed funding. This financial milestone was followed by the opening of their first retail store in Boston in 2014.

Over the years, Ministry of Supply has consistently leveraged cutting-edge technologies to redefine business apparel. They have integrated moisture-wicking fabrics, 3D knitting, and machine learning into their product development. Their innovative portfolio includes machine-washable suits, self-ironing dress shirts, and blazers crafted from 3D knitted fabrics.

By 2022, Ministry of Supply expanded its physical presence to 7 retail stores and continued to sell directly to consumers online. The company has raised $20 million in funding, supporting its growth and product diversification. In 2020, in response to the remote work trend, Ministry of Supply launched a work-from-home line, further broadening its range into casual attire, adapting to the changing dynamics of the workplace and fashion.
