Finding the perfect fitting sweater can be a problem for some people, thankfully, Ministry of Supply is offering a sweater that can be easily fitted to any shape and size. Utilizing innovations developed by the Self-Assembly Lab at MIT, Ministry of Supply offers a sweater that can be adjusted to any size using only heat. This means you could grab a small off the shelf, and after Ministry of Supply takes your measurements, an in-store robot will use a heat gun to adjust the sweater to your exact size.

This is the first commercial application of the MIT-developed technology which was originally developed to solve the problems of mass customization. For years, the fashion industry has explored how to mass-produce custom garments, but this offering from Ministry of Supply solves that issue by mass-producing clothing in standard sizes, then supplying further customization in-store.
