Travis Austin Customs is much more than a clothing company, I like to think of it as a branding agency with an emphasis on style. I started this company with one product in mind, the custom leather jacket. As we have grown and extended our network, we have expanded our products to custom Travis Austin Hats, curated vintage tops focused on rare band tees, custom denim jackets and of course, our custom leathers, which will always be our main focus.
What I take the most pride in, is being able to use my art to enrich my client's brand/image. I have so much respect for other artists' work, the fact that I get to use it as inspiration for my own and pay homage to their craft is so special to me.
The artists I work with usually already have brand images. I get to bring a new light, capture impressions and strengthen the image as much as possible, it's a dream job really. Our additional products, the vintage, denim, and custom hats have been amazing for our brand. They allow us to connect with many more people and provide collectible pieces to anyone who shops with us. Everything we create from reclaimed, vintage items, the fact that we get to breathe new life into all of those stories and introduce them to the current generation gets me so excited...and I'm very proud of that.
When it comes to what sets us apart from others; besides the obvious, which is the time and heart we put into every piece and the fact that everything you buy from us is one-of-one - no one will ever have the same piece…it is our sense of community. The heartbeat of this company is about extending a legacy so that for years to come, people are walking around this world with a Travis Austin on their back and that to me is the most beautiful legacy I can provide. Not only disruption to industries that need to be changed, but providing a legacy for all those other people and providing the stories and and the color to their lives.
