I am looking into changing careers. My goal is to work in apparel at a company that has clothing that I am interested in. Any suggestions? I am considering applying to places like Nudie (Want Agency), Earnest Sewn, Theory, Kicking Mule... You get the idea. I have sales exp, management exp, and tons of cust serv exp but haven't worked at higher levels at any clothing stores. I've looked into larger department stores and I'm not so sure that would be the place for me to go. My dream job would be to have my own men's clothing store (and I've spent the last 2 years working on that) but it's going to take more time to come up with the money. Any ideas or suggestions in the clothing industry? Edit: I forgot, I'd prefer to stay on the East Coast. Anyone know anybody at the companies mentioned?
