      Hi Alastair,

      Thanks for the message! We just emailed you about getting you a refund or some better fitting shirts asap!

      Best,
      Kit

    2. Creator Alastair Schoen on July 8, 2013

      Hi Kit,

      I received the replacement shirt about a month ago (I know our previous exchanges were longer ago than that, but I had the replacement shirt shipped to my family in Ohio to save the international shipping charges and waste. Though they shipped me it a bit later than I was expecting). However, the shirt itself still doesn't really fit. The chest is fine but compared to the previous slim's cuffs, are even smaller and quite binding on my wrists and make watching wearing impossible. As a result the shirt has again gone unworn save the initial try-on. Living in Taiwan makes these exchanges quite troublesome for me (and MoS even more no doubt) so I largely resigned this as a failed kickstarter investment, though I quite like the Cores and the Atmos is an interesting one. However, good news hopefully! As I will be visiting the U.S. for the next few weeks. I was hoping that, despite the rather long expiration of time I could have one more exchange for the next size up. And since I'm nearby for a while, I'd be happy to return both of the Apollos I have, still in their new conditions (I'm still quite flabbergasted you let me keep the first one considering its cost, which is considerable, so I will continue to believe in MoS as an honorable company if this request is rejected). I'm hopeful I can still get an Apollo that fits me and realize the MoS brand as a secretly super-capable staple of my formal wardrobe.

      Thank you for your time,

      Alastair

      So awesome to hear! Thanks Jeffrey!

    4. Creator Jeffrey on June 5, 2013

      I've gotta say, the Apollo 2.0 really is an improvement over the first batch! Thanks MoS for the shirts!

    5. Creator Ministry of Supply on January 29, 2013

      John - glad you're coming back for more! We should have more classic fits in stock in 4ish weeks. We'll email everyone once we do. We're making some design changes to the shirts which will be incorporated into that batch!

      laha - we have grey Atmos shirts, but, just keep them undercover! Just email Q@ministryofsupply.com to get one. We're working on more patterns - stay tuned!!!

    6. Creator laha4902 on January 29, 2013

      Hi MoS, I love my apollo and my performance and atom shirts. Two questions, A) any chance of a grey performance/atom shirt in the near future? B) any chance of more Apollo shirts with patterns? Anyways, keep up the great work. The shirts look awesome!

    7. Creator John Turner on January 23, 2013

      Any word on when you might get more "Classic Fit" shirts in stock? I'm waiting to order my other 2 shirts in size L.

    8. Creator Ministry of Supply on January 15, 2013

      Aaron and ProjectMinimal - so pumped to hear you love the shirts!!! Thanks for the support!

    9. Creator Aaron on January 15, 2013

      Amazing shirts. Thanks MoS for letting me stay classyfied

    10. Creator ProjectMinimal on January 12, 2013

      Great products, received my Kickstarter package and loved it, ordered two more shirts during their December promotion. The undershirts are incredible.

    11. Creator Robert Guenther on January 9, 2013

      Hi guys, Robert from Germany here, any updates on my shipment? Thanks, Rob

    12. Creator Ministry of Supply on January 5, 2013

      Hi Martin - sorry the sizing didn't work for you! If you email Q@ministryofsupply.com we'll be happy to set you up for a refund!!

      Patricia - looks like your shirt was signed for on November 19th. Emailing you now so we can track it down with you and get you into Apollo asap!

    13. Creator Patricia O'Callaghan on January 5, 2013

    14. Creator Martin Devine on January 4, 2013

      Wow- Just tried on your Classic Fit and I have to say I doubt your chest sizing on the size chart. I usually am an XL (17 inch neck, 35/36 inch sleeve). According to your size chart that would mean a 45-47.5 inch chest. I usually fit a 46 no problem, but on the XL I got when I pull the buttons together as far as they can go, its 4 inches to short. Given that, I doubt the XXL will even work.

    15. Creator Richard Cooper on January 3, 2013

      Awesome! Thanks, and Happy New Year :)

    16. Creator Ministry of Supply on January 2, 2013

      Hey Richard! Your shirts shipped on December 20th via USPS tracking number LN381272058US. It usually takes about 2 - 3 weeks to get to international customers, so you should expect yours soon!

    17. Creator Richard Cooper on January 2, 2013

      Hi Guys

      Just wondering about my shipment - Need new shirts for the new year :)

    18. Creator Diraj Goel on December 31, 2012

    19. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 22, 2012

      Ah Nicholas, we hope you can stop sitting on the edge of your chair soon!!! UPS 1Z1787TT0311303827. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    20. Creator Nicholas Holmes on December 22, 2012

      Please could I have a tracking number? The anticipation is killing me :D

    21. Creator nockgeneer on December 21, 2012

      Congrats on getting the last two out the door! Nap time anyone?

    22. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 21, 2012

      John Burke - thanks SO much for awesome feedback! We appreciate it!

      John McGee - Your order was...literally...one of the last TWO to go out (that must be a sign of luck somewhere). Anyways it is en route!! UPS tracking number 1Z1787TT0311303452

      John Turner - Thanks!!! We're on it!

    23. Creator John Turner on December 21, 2012

      Not sure if this is the best place, but I was here checking to see if anyone had already noticed this. I was checking your site to order some more shirts (it seemed some new stock was in) but I keep getting 0 items in my cart and the Cart page shows an error that an item is no longer in stock. But it still lets me select it from the order page.

    24. Creator John McGee on December 21, 2012

      Looking for a update on my order?

    25. Creator Jon Burke on December 20, 2012

      I washed two of my Apollo shirts last night; I just threw them in the washing machine with a full load of other laundry, without bothering to check any washing instructions. I was very interested to see what they would look like after drip drying, and whether they would need to be ironed after they dried.

      To my astonishment, after I separated them from the tangle of washing I pulled out of the machine, they exhibited virtually no creases or wrinkles whatsoever. Apart from still being damp from washing, they were completely wearable. I have bought 'iron free' microfiber shirts in the past which didn't come close to living up to marketing claims. These are the first genuine 'iron free' business shirts I have ever owned. I have never experienced anything like these Apollos.

    26. Creator Ben Hendricks on December 19, 2012

      Hey guys, just looking for a status on my order. Thanks!

    27. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 19, 2012

      Hi everyone! We have an amazing update - all orders except about 10 have gone out. So excited to get over 4,000 shirts made, tagged and out the door! What an accomplishment - thanks so much for your support and helping us get to this point.

    28. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 19, 2012

      Hi Nicholas! You were one of the last 25 to go out - lucky you!! Anyways, great news, your order has been "Picked" by our fulfillment center, meaning it will out out in the next 48 hours! Whoo whoo!

    29. Creator Justin Geldof on December 18, 2012

      Thanks Guys.

    30. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 18, 2012

      Hey Justin,

      Your order went out on November 13th! We're finding that sometimes packages get held up in customs for international orders - looks like this may have happened to you!

      We'll email you about getting you a new shirt that hopefully the UK customs doesn't take!

    31. Creator Justin Geldof on December 18, 2012

      Hi Guys,

      Any update on my order?

      Thanks,
      Justin

    32. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 17, 2012

      Hi Peter! Good news! Your shirt was "Inducted" by our fulfillment center - this means it should go out in the next 48 hours!!

    33. Creator Peter Iannucci on December 17, 2012

      Hi there! Any news on the status of my order?

    34. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 17, 2012

      Thanks SO much John!!! So glad you're happy!

      Heads up, we should be getting more shirts in later this week :)

      Best,
      Kit

    35. Creator John Turner on December 17, 2012

      After exchanging my three M Classic Fit for one L Classic Fit I now have a shirt that fits as good as it feels. Just waiting for more shirts to appear online so I can order two more. I have to say you have done a great job with your customer support. Keep up the good work.

    36. Creator Martin Schmidinger on December 17, 2012

      I got my atmos Base Layer on thursday last week. It fits perfect and feels also like I hoped. A good example for a successfull kickstarter project.
      Now I'm waiting to get my apollo shirt (I backed the premium package).
      Is it already shipped? Do you have a tracking number for me?
      Thank you in advance.

    37. Creator Jon Burke on December 17, 2012

      I've been wearing my performance layers for a week now. They're a highly effective thermal layer when the temperature drops below 20 degrees Celsius. I've worn two Apollos a couple of times now, and they feel utterly luxurious. They're exactly what I hoped they would be. All my cotton business shirts have now been retired permanently.

    38. Creator Nicholas Holmes on December 16, 2012

      Hey fellas, any word on whether my order has shipped out yet? Thanks in advance!

    39. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 16, 2012

      Hey Jeri!! You should be getting your shirts in the next day or so. They shipped on the 14th (you were one of the last orders to go out!) and are coming to you via UPS. Tracking number 1Z1787TT0311295373 Cant wait to hear what you think!

    40. Creator Jeri Bryant on December 16, 2012

      So when will I get my shirts????

    41. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 14, 2012

      Alexander - pumped you love them!!! If you have an issue with the grey shadow, email us at Q@ministryofsupply.com and we'll get you in another one. We should have some more inventory up on the site early next week, once we get our last batch of shirts in.

    42. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 14, 2012

      Hi Jon, so glad you like the shirts! Your post made our day :)

    43. Creator Alexander Broehl on December 14, 2012

      Received my apollo shirt and the two base layers today and love them. They fit perfect on me, almost as made by measure. The apollo shirt has a little grey shadow at one point, but I hope to get that washed out.

      The apollo shirt is a classic fit L in white. Looking at your website: when can they be ordered again? Currently I find only the ultra slim option in XS.

    44. Creator Thomas Tillenius on December 11, 2012

      Tip: Don't ship international orders in individual tubes.
      In Sweden we have to pay an "administration fee" to the Post office for every package/tube with custom fees on it. Just picked up four tubes, each with a flat $15 "administration fee" added on to the custom fees. And I'm still missing one or two tubes (and I need to exchange the shirts).
      I don't mind paying customs and tax fees, just the extra "administration fees" ;)

    45. Creator Jon Burke on December 11, 2012

      My five Apollo shirts arrived today, late like the performance layers due to the address missing a line. Four white shirts, one Oxford. They fit perfectly (Classic fit), and feel absolutely wonderful over a performance layer. I love the texture of the material, and the little touches of quality; trim on the inside of the cuffs and collar beveled cuff edge, well reinforced collar, solid double stitching throughout. I'm really looking forward to trying them out.

      @Stefan
      Hallo, ich war gestern beim Zoll, um mein Paket abzuholen, da sich eine Rechnung o.ä. nicht an der Verpackung (aber darin) befindet. Bei mir hat der Amazon-Mail-Ausdruck über den Preis sowie die Backer-Mail von Kickstarter ausgereicht. Wenn Deine Bestellung unter 150 € liegt, rechne mit 19 % Einfuhrumsatzsteuer oben drauf. Wenn die Bestellung darüber liegt, kommt noch der Zoll dazu (insgesamt ca. 30 % oben drauf).

    47. Creator Stefan Nieswandt on December 10, 2012

      Hi,
      Is there a bill that comes with the package? Need that information for the german duty, that now keeps my shirts :-( normally it should be outside at the package but it seems there is no billing information. I would be very thankful for this information. if not, where can I get a bill for my shirts?

    48. Creator Ministry of Supply on December 9, 2012

If there's any desire for an exchange, no problem - we want to make sure folks are happy with what they end up with. So shoot a note to q@ministryofsupply.com if you've got any thoughts or desires that are specific to your order.

      Hi. How can I refund my money for my order?

    50. Creator CWong85 on December 9, 2012
