To say Nike's A.A.E. 1.0 T-shirt is over-engineered is a massive understatement. Using a series of body maps to create the t-shirt's pattern, Nike looked to its motion maps to see how the body reacts in different environments. 

Most of their attention was paid to urban environments with a large focus on how your surrounding climate changes quite rapidly as you move through different areas during the day. 

All this data was interpreted into a knit construction that placed ventilation and coverage in the areas that needed it helping create a performance shirt that's ideal for a body that's constantly in motion.

Nike's A.A.E 1.0 collection launches on September 14th.
