In this episode of Brick & Data we are joined by Aman Advani – the CEO and Co-founder of Ministry of Supply. This episode truly represents the intersection of technology and fashion – literally weaving technology into the fabric we wear. Does the name ‘Ministry of Supply” sound slightly familiar? If you are a James Bond fan, it should.
Ministry of Supply
We started Ministry of Supply to solve a common problem: Dress clothes are stiff, stuffy, and high-maintenance. Born out of MIT in 2012, our mission is to engineer sharp, high-performing, comfortable clothes. By understanding your body in motion and using innovative materials, we are inventing apparel that’s sweat proof, highly stretchable, and machine washable—dress clothes you actually want to wear.
Our Namesake: You know Q from Bond? He’s based on a real person, named Charles Fraser Smith, who designed gadgetry and clothing for the British Special Ops. We’re inspired by Q, the ultimate empathetic inventor, creating gear for people on a mission. His cover? Our namesake, Ministry of Supply.
