4 Way Stretch With Ministry Of Supply Aviator 2 Suit

The menswear & tech industries are forming symbiotic relationship that may change the way we dress – with the brand Ministry of Supply being one of the leaders of this stylish new school. I’ve partnered with the brand to put their Aviator 2 suit through the wringer and test out its 4 way stretch characteristics.

The first thing you think of when you hear stretchy suit is – Spider Man! You might not do much web slinging, but I can assume that you’re an on-the-go kind of guy. From making the mad dash to catch the bus for work, a bike ride through the city or your average day of parkour (well maybe that’s just some of us) – if you’re wearing a traditional fabric suit, your range of motion is often highly restricted.

Let’s be honest, when I first got these pieces I was skeptical. My skepticism wasn’t based on the fact that I wasn’t sure if the technical properties would hold true, it was more in the fact that I wasn’t sure if the tailoring would be on par with traditional menswear brands. That level of skepticism was easily thwarted upon the first try-on. Now that’s done, let get down to business.

Favorite Features

  • The 4 way stretch is impressive: The fabric is a warp-knit with 4 way stretch that is highly flexible, light and bounces back after a full day’s wear. I’ve mentioned in the past that if you can run in a suit, it’s passes the life essentials test – and this suit surpasses that standard
  • The buttons: all the buttons are snaps, however; the ones that close the jacket snap and lock. So, you don’t have to worry about it coming undone. The cuffs are a series of traditional, yet, hidden snaps
  • Hidden Jacket Pockets: Under the left jacket lapel is a hidden chest pocket. Fit’s my iPhone perfectly. The external patch pockets are very discreet
  • The breathability – with an unlined jacket — this suit breathes well for maximum wearability
  • Shirt Fit & Function – the button up shirts are tapered well through the body and have wicking properties. The knitwear (see SVK sweater below) have a mesh back that’s extremely breathable.

Even though it’s a suit, the stretch quality of Aviator adds an inherently casual sporty vibe – which means you can easily dress it down or wear the jacket and pants separately. Like any suit, when you’re opting to dress down your suit with sneakers, keep it minimal. If you’re a risk taker, up the ante with a sporty trainer and go for a run – this suit can handle it.
