The One Jacket You Need for Spring

It’s the bomb-er.

San Francisco loves a multitasker.

An app that hails a cab? Great.

An app that hails a cab and then reduces your fare by picking up another rider on the way? Even better.

The two-for-one aspect, undoubtedly, is part of the success of local clothier Ministry of Supply, who today release their new bomber jacket, one we’re ready to name the jacket of the season.

Ministry of Supply is a fashion label as likely to be covered by Wired as GQ, thanks to a high-tech pedigree: its founders met at MIT, and include a chemical engineer, a mountain climber and a consultant — and innovative treatments.

The Aviator Bomber is the latest addition to the line. Four-way stretch means it moves easily, while a water repellent finish will keep you dry if and when it ever rains again. Telescoping cuffs — most often seen in first responders’ gear — guarantee extra mobility.

Want a shirt that will keep you cool with Phase Change Material, a temperature-regulating technology also used in space suits? Try the Apollo.

A moisture-wicking V-neck tee? That’s the Atmos.

A really good-looking peacoat that manages to be warm but not stifling? See the Stratos.

It’s stylish, sleek and pleasingly low-profile.

Even if it doesn’t come with a billion-dollar pay-out.
