Nobody likes wearing shirts to work, especially on hot days. While it's usually a company dress code and there's not much you can do about it, the folks over at Ministry of Supply have come up with a solution to help make it better. Called Apollo shirts, these clothes are made from Phase-change Materials that pull heat from your body, keeping you cool when you're in hot weather.
However, instead of just releasing the heat into the air, these shirts store the heat and release them back onto your body when you enter a cool environment i.e. an air-conditioned room. This ensures that your body is kept at your “perfect skin temperature” – not too cold or not too warm wherever you are. The shirts also feature a blend of fabrics and an anti-microbial coating that work to get rid of your sweat and keep your personal odors at bay.
Unfortunately the shirts aren't on sale at the moment – but on the bright side, it has managed to overshoot its Kickstarter target, which means we'll definitely be seeing these shirts in the future. If you'd like to pick up one of your own, you can head over to the Kickstarter page and pledge $95 (it is estimated to retail at $129).
