About Austin/Hauck Men's Business and Casual Apparel.

At Austin/Hauck, our goal is a simple oneā€¦put the "special" back into the men's "specialty store" business. To accomplish this goal takes a unique blend of clothier experience, buying expertise, close attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to customer service excellence.

Doug Hauck
Doug Hauck began his career in men's clothing as a high school youth working part time for F.H. Weatherwax Co. in Sioux Falls, SD. After graduation from Northern State College, he took his newfound passion for men's clothing to Green Bay, Wisconsin where he became a sales associate for a well-known menswear store. After ten years in Green Bay, Mr. Hauck moved to Denver, CO where he became a sales associate and eventually sales manager at Denver's premiere downtown men's clothing store.

After 15 years as a top producer, Mr. Hauck earned the reputation as one of the top clothiers in the western region. When asked why he wanted to open his own store in Historic Downtown Littleton, CO, Mr. Hauck says "With men's stores becoming so big and impersonal, I just felt there was a need in the Denver market for a true men's specialty store that was small enough to give personal attention to everyone and large enough to be able to execute at every level for him. I believe we created an environment here that makes our customers feel at home whether they are shopping or just visiting.

Bill Austin
Bill Austin joined Doug Hauck as one of the original founders of Austin/Hauck Co., Inc. in April 2001. Mr. Austin had been shopping with Doug Hauck for nearly 15 years and developed a close friendship with him through the clothing business and running together in long distance training and running events for charity.

With a background in Marketing, Advertising and General Business, Mr. Austin had no formal training or experience in the men's clothing business but decided to join Doug Hauck in the new store venture because of his love of "the cloth" and his friendship with Mr. Hauck. Since the store opening on Thanksgiving Day 2001, Mr. Austin has gained a great deal of knowledge about the men's clothing business. This new experience combined with his past marketing and general business experience has created a balance of skill sets with master clothier Doug Hauck. "This store has the perfect mix of clothing expertise, business acumen and the commitment to customer service excellence to make it very successful."
