American Clothing Brand
Brand Profile

Founded in 2007 by avid golfer Travis Brasher, TravisMathew Clothing originated as a golf-inspired lifestyle brand in Southern California. Brasher’s initial vision centered on crafting versatile apparel marrying laidback comfort with sophistication.

In 2017, Callaway Golf acquired the niche startup in a landmark $125.5 million deal under the leadership of CEO Ryan Ellis. Onboarded in 2007 as TravisMathew’s first employee, Ellis steadily took the helm over an 11+ year tenure spanning nearly every department.

The acquisition enabled TravisMathew’s rapid expansion into complete lifestyle apparel targeting men and women. Today, offerings range from t-shirts and polos to hats, footwear, and premium denim. Buoyed by Ellis’ intimate brand focus and VP of Marketing Leif Sunderland’s early involvement, TravisMathew achieved over $300 million in 2022 sales.

With callouts like fabric innovation and strategic retail partnerships, TravisMathew joins established apparel labels. The brand additionally sets its sights on a $1 billion valuation through consistent 30% annual growth.

While products uphold a dedication to quality and performance, Ellis spearheads an evolution beyond TravisMathew’s niche golf roots. His leadership nurtures a culture advancing Californian sophistication into broader men’s sports and lifestyle apparel. Anchored in versatile wearability and expanding retail availability, the brand continues innovating while staying loyal to its laidback origins.
