Today's man is smart, strategic, stylish and driven—and he has changed the rules of the menswear market. In response, brands from the independent to the iconic are breaking boundaries—evolving their images and developing innovative ways to reach this informed and powerful consumer. They are rethinking the traditional, finding new platforms and sales channels, and reinforcing an authentic consumer experience at every turn.

Themed Breaking Boundaries, the Fairchild Fashion Media Men's Wear Summit will bring together the industry's most innovative leaders to assess, discuss and offer insight on the challenges and opportunities in today's marketplace.

Topics include:
• Evolution of a brand image
• Blurring the lines—designer and streetwear
• Revamping retail, rethinking the traditional
• Engagement opportunities—online, in store, and across platforms
• The changing role of trade shows
• Pockets of opportunity and category growth
