Typically a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy, an invite to a school function – suit required – prompted Austin to venture into more refined attire. He quickly ditched the old band tees for ties, with a newfound appreciation for the formal section of the men's department.

He uses this now patent-pending process to create sturdy accessories that keep neckwear from getting too unruly, lest you look anything less than formal.
