I'm due to graduate in June from the University of Toronto. I'm majoring in business and marketing and given the fact that I'm here, I have a strong interest in classical menswear. I've only been involved in the menswear scene since summer of 2014 but given all that I've learned in that time frame, I really do see this as an industry that I want to be part of.
Best case scenario: I would be able to land an entry-level marketing role for a M2M clothier but I think the biggest knock against me is that I've never directly worked in the fashion industry, not even in a retail position. With that being said, all the knowledge that I've gained has been strictly through StyleForum and Reddit, which I think are fantastic communities.
So my question to you all today: how would you advise a young 21-year old professional in getting his feet wet in the menswear industry?
