There’s definitely a groundswell of buzz behind the forthcoming second season of How to Make it in America.  Everyone is cashing in on the alleged “cool factor” of the HBO series.  And with reason. The show is very much fashion-oriented and in tune with the urban aesthetic, so it makes complete sense that a lifestyle brand like Thrillist would jump on board.
