Know who you want to to work with beforehand
Once you figure out what brands you're a big fan of and what inspires you, and mash them both together, you'll have a good idea about your personal aesthetic is. The next step is figuring out which people and publications are in line with that. Into tailored gear and Italian brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Zegna? A men's publication with a slightly older bent may be your fit. If your taste is eclectic, like GANT, Wings + Horns, Hood By Air, and White Mountaineering, you may want to work with the Complex team in translating what's hot into cool and wearable looks. Find out what you want to say first, and then find people you think can help you get the message out.
