My blogging will be a little intermittent this summer as I work long days then take the plane to New York for my internship with Alton Lane where I’ll be working mostly in PR and marketing. Alton Lane is a young, men’s fashion start-up devoted to custom fitted clothes at a reasonable price range and they’re doing some exciting stuff. With two stores opened in two years (New York and DC), they have plans for several more, from Boston to Chicago to San Francisco. Keep an eye out for them and wish me luck. I guess persistence really does pay off when you’re looking for internships/jobs—that’s the only way I got mine, as a freshmen majoring in journalism. Be careful to tread the line between persistent and annoying though.
“There are lots of things in my life that interest me more than fashion. But personal style? That I’m endlessly fascinated by, and it often seems to be the opposite of fashion.”—Michael Bastian on personal style, via an interview with The Discerning Few (via mypantalones)
