About Us

Austere Beginnings

The founders of Austere Wear come from humble backgrounds.

Matt grew up in Jamaica, “the land of wood and water.” At a young age, he developed both a fondness for woodworking and a sharp intuition for business.

Both traits came in handy when he came to the US and linked up with Brian (UT Austin '03 and brother of Kappa Alpha Psi), a versatile Louisianan hustler whose skill set includes sales, health care, and quantitative risk assessment.

They launched AW in 2019 with our original collection (Dubai, Tokyo, Seoul, Paris, London, and New York), and the rest is history.
