The Aero Zeroº Dress Shirt is another one of Ministry of Supply’s best sellers and for good reason. It has some of the sweetest stretch yet, is wrinkle free and happens to be made with 100% recycled materials.
But, does Ministry of Supply go from zero to hero with their carbon neutral dress shirts?
This article covers how the Aero Zeroº Dress Shirt feels, how it fits, what I like, what I don’t like and wraps things up with similar dress shirts I recommend.
Let’s get started.

Ministry of Supply Dress Shirt Review
The classic dress shirt is a closet staple for many men, in both business casual and more formal settings. Ministry of Supply’s Aero Zero Carbon Neutral Dress Shirt is cut from a different cloth, figuratively and literally.
It’s highlighted by its carbon neutral properties and is 100% recycled and milled under solar power.
How Does The Shirt Feel?
The Aero Zeroº shirt comes in at a price that you can find many made-to-measure dress shirts. It’s an ideal “work leisure” garment, balancing casual and formal features. The first thing you might notice about the shirt is its softness and undeniable stretch.
The advertised 4-way stretch really has to be felt for yourself. It’s comfortable as I move actively throughout my day, crossing my arms, etc. It’s almost as if I could run a marathon in this shirt, no problem.
The Aero Zeroº also drapes cleanly, almost like a silk fabric. And there’s a very slight sheen to the shirt that you can see at various angles in the light.
Did you know? When you’re ready to retire your Aero Zeroº shirt, Ministry of Supply will send it in to be recycled and give you a $50 credit towards a new one.
Additionally, it features a soft yet firm collar with built in collar stays. While I personally like the clean structure that shirt stays give the collar; however, they’re not removable and so I’m afraid that they may warp in the wash.
I guess I’ll find out soon enough. It’s also nice that there’s no tag behind the collar. Tagless collars are much more comfortable than tags that will itch your neck all day long.
How Does The Shirt Fit?
The first thing you’ll notice about the fit of the Aero Zeroº dress shirt is that the length is way too long on my 5’6″ frame. I definitely won’t be wearing it untucked anytime soon. The good thing is that this shirt is dressier than a typical oxford shirt and so it’s better suited to be worn tucked in.
In addition to the shirt running long, the sleeves do too, extending past my thumb bone. It’s not a huge issue, but it is noticeable to discerning eyes. It may shrink a tiny bit in a hot wash and dry cycle. I’ve worn the shirt a few times, but have yet to run it through the laundry. Guess we’ll see soon enough.
Other than the lengthy shirt and sleeves, the overall fit is solid after a proper shirt tuck. It’s slim fitting creating a clean silhouette, the collar is comfortable around my neck when buttoned all the way up and the shoulder slope is just right for my frame.
Finally, be sure to check out the fit finder and interactive visual guide (powered by Drapr) to find the perfect size for you. I find the slider tool to be tremendously helpful. (gotta love new tech!)
What I Like About The Aero Zero Dress Shirt
Here are a handful of things that I really like about the Aero Zero dress shirt.
- The 4-way stretch has to be felt for yourself, it’s simply incredible.
- Little details like the back darts and underarm air vents don’t go unnoticed.
- Comes in 8 highly versatile and classic colors from white to blue and black to gray.
- Forget the drycleaners, you can machine wash these shirts and not worry about wrinkles.
- It’s carbon neutral, made with 100% recycled materials — how many shirts can say that?
What I Don’t Like About The Aero Zero Dress Shirt
While the shirt is already quite good, there are some areas that I believe could improve the product.
- I know it’s asking a lot, but they don’t offer a short option for men under 5’8″
- Like many other brands, the sleeves run long even with their smallest size of XS
- Not really a fan of built-in collar stays even if the collar is advertised as “no-warp”
Quick note: If you’re enjoying this Ministry of Supply Aero Zero Dress Shirt Review, then you’ll probably like this Everlane Oxford Shirt Review too.
