Yesterday I was fortunate enough to speak to a group of young men about dressing well in the workplace. The event was sponsored by the Buffalo State College Residence Life Office, as a part of their Resident Assistant Appreciation Week. After answering several questions about personal style, tailoring, and other menswear related topics, I realized how important it is for forums like this to be held on college campuses. Menswear has become extremely popular over the past few years, but there is still a huge population of young men, particularly college students that remain oblivious to the power of dressing well.
Some of the questions asked were, “What to wear to an interview?”, “Is tailoring effective?”, and “what does your style say about you?”. The other panelists and I answered all of the questions honestly and shared some of our personal experiences with the group. As a result, some of the guys expressed their appreciation for the event. However, I was the one that left feeling inspired and motivated. Therefore, I have decided to continue to share my story at other colleges and universities with young professionals and aspiring young professionals alike. I once heard the phrase, ”Be the change you would like to see”, and I believe this will be a good start. So if you would like for me to speak at your college, please click here.
