Out of boredom I was skimming the Glenn O'Brien sections from some old GQ's and "how to dress yourself"-type guides and I started thinking to myself "you know, it would be fun for me to do something like this." I'm well aware that my clothing knowledge isn't even in the same league as many of the posters here, but at least compared to my peers and the average guy I seem to be rather knowledgeable; ever since I started reading this board and upgrading my wardrobe my friends have noticed and started coming to me with their own fashion questions. What I'm interested in doing is either acting as a style advice columnist or just writing articles about men's fashion in general (evolution of traditions, nuances in different places/eras, cultural significance, etc). When school gets back in the fall, I think I may try to join a campus publication or start my own and write about the above subjects. Til then, I'm trying to decide whether this is a realistic/worthwhile possibility for doing full time and generating income and if so, how to go about pursuing it, as well as how to improve and refine my fashion/style knowledge (besides reading this board). I've already got a summer job, but this could be a good project for my free time. This was just a random light bulb that came to my head at 4 am, so I haven't spent extensive time thinking it over, but I'd be interested in what everyone here would have to say about it.
