Josh Peskowitz, the co-founder of California-based retailer Magasin, is a well-known figure in the menswear sphere. With an impressive CV of work experience in the fashion world — it includes stints at The Fader, Esquire, and Bloomingdale’s, among others — he has collected an ample supply of industry knowledge under his belt.
