If you’re not yet familiar with Phase Change Materials (PCMs), let the Apollo Shirt from Ministry of Supply serve as your wearable introduction. Developed in the 1980s by NASA engineers at Johnson Space Center in collaboration with private industry, PCMs change state at different temperatures, helping regulate temperature shifts in textiles in a passive way, as opposed to the active liquid-cooled garments that, up to this point, had been used to protect astronauts from the extreme temperatures in space. What this means for you in the form of clothing? It means a shirt that transfers heat away from you when you’re too warm and brings it right back when you start to feel a chill. Add to that a moisture-wicking polyester fabric and a comfortable, flexible fit, and you have the Apollo — the technology of a spacesuit in an everyday shirt.
