The inaugural London Collections: Men schedule has been set and it's going to be a gentlemanly affair with Prince Charles, Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger and a bevy of bespoked bros participating.
His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales will kick off the sartorial weekend on June 14 with a reception at St. James's Palace followed by the opening reception hosted by Topman that night. The following evening Ford will hold a dinner while Esquire and Mr. Porter have an event of their own.
On Saturday night, the 16th, Louis Vuitton and Spencer Hart will both host cocktail parties and everything will be wrapped up nicely on the 17th with a Burberry event hosted by Christopher Bailey and a GQ dinner hosted by Calvin Klein.
As for the actual fashion, Hilfiger, Pringle of Scotland, Thom Browne, Belstaff, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane, Joseph Abboud and Richard Nicoll among others will all hold presentations.
