by David Zax, Fast Company The cofounder of menswear startup Ministry of Supply ran a half marathon in a suit; it was part cunning PR, and part extreme R&D. It worked.
by Curt Woodward, Beta Boston As luck would have it, Ministry of Supply had recently launched a new jacket andpants — the Aviator 2 — that offered just the kind of flexibility that you’d need for 13.1 miles of pounding the pavement.

His time was a speedy 1:24:41, only about two minutes off his previous best, and good enough for ninth place.
