Episode 37: Ministry of Supply CEO and Co-Founder, Aman Advani
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.
