Those who count on Ministry of Supply for performance workwear will be interested to know that the start-up now boasts its own in-store 3D knitting machine.

Following its introduction of 50 seamless, wrinkle-proof and sweat-wicking 3D knitted blazers last year, Ministry of Supply is now launching its first-ever 3D robotic knitting machine at its flagship location in Boston, which will now enable consumers to create and customize their own 3D-printed blazers right in the store. With this machine, customers will be able to choose the color of their blazer, as well as cuff details and button colors.

Naturally, the in-store 3D knitting machine takes some time to create the garments, but this process generally only takes about an hour and a half. Best of all, the knitting machine is capable of working overnight, which will allow the company to keep up with demand.
