Article 15 Clothing founders

When military members hear “Article 15,” one of two things come to mind.

The first being nonjudicial punishment (NJP), which refers to “certain limited punishments that can be awarded for minor disciplinary offenses by a commanding officer or officer in charge to members of his/her command …  in the Army and Air Force, it is referred to as ‘Article 15,'” according to

The other thing that comes to mind is Article 15 Clothing.

Article 15 Clothing was started in January 2014. In a little more than a year, the company has become a household name in the military community.

Article 15 Clothing began with four founders, all of whom are veterans with years and years of military experience.

Perhaps the most well-known name amongst the group is CEO Mat Best, who served in the U.S. Army from 2004-2008 in the elite 75th Ranger Regiment.

During his time in the Army, Best completed five combat deployments. Since his departure from the Army, Mat has worked for the government in a contracting role.

Best has also helped churn out viral video after viral video on his YouTube page (some content is NSFW).

From a social media perspective, Article 15 Clothing has a limitless reach filled with current and former military personnel that use the social channels to have fun — Art 15’s YouTube and Facebook pages are perfect examples of this (some content is NSFW).
