We kicked off a sales competition at Ministry of Supply this month. It’s a fun way to start our busiest quarter with a friendly competition and jovial trash-talking, and it’s one of the few times that we discount our gear.
I’m on team DaVinci. At any time in October, you can use our promo code, davinci, to get 25% off anything you buy at our website or retail stores in Boston, NYC, and SF.
We make menswear that has a clean aesthetic and incorporates apparel tech to provide functional benefits that you wouldn’t typically associate with office attire. For example, some of our dress shirts are made with a material NASA developed to help keep you at your optimal body temperature as you move across different situations (outside to crowded subway to cold office to high-pressure meeting). But tech isn’t everything; it still has to be something you’d want to wear. So our design director ensures that our stuff still looks good (he used to lead design at Brooks Brothers…so he knows what he’s doing).
I usually don’t like to push stuff on my personal accounts, except when I actually think it’s good, and in this case, I think our dress shirts are really, really good. That’s a big part of the reason that I decided to leave Microsoft to join the company 6 months ago at considerable personal and financial expense. I used to travel all the time in dress clothes when I worked at BCG, and it was miserable. So this stuff made a lot of sense to me as soon as I heard about it. Fortunately, Bernice was incredibly supportive about the move, and she thinks the MOS gear that has overwhelmed my closet since joining looks better than my old wardrobe.
I especially dig our Apollo dress shirt. It’s a knit dress shirt, so it doesn’t have the look of a traditional dress shirt, but it feels fantastic. It has 4-way stretch and is incredible breathable, which is super important to me (moment it gets hot, I start sweating a lot). Great shirt if you are a bigger guy. I wore it all through our recent vacation in Ireland. I was able to throw 2 of them in my Osprey pack and class things up when we went out at night without ever touching an iron (I hate ironing).
Anyways, if you want to check us out, you can shop us online or at our retail stores in Boston, SF, and NYC. We have a 100-day return policy with free shipping, so it’s low risk, and you can get 25% off with the discount code davinci.
