London Collections Men Sponsors & Suppliers June 2016

Official Sponsors

British GQ

An Official Sponsor of London Collections Men since its inception, British GQ is once again thrilled to be a crucial partner in the world’s biggest and best menswear showcase. As the country’s sharpest, most stylish publication, we feel it’s a relationship that’s as entirely fitting as a Savile Row suit.

The growth of LCM over eight seasons and London’s burgeoning place at the heart of the menswear universe – from the technical perfection of its bespoke tailors to the directional dynamism of recent art-school graduates turned young designers – this is the epicentre of men’s fashion. In print, across our digital platforms and on social media, British GQ’s coverage of the event will be second-to-none, and we know – and our sales and stats tell us – that our readers are hungry for the inside track on what is coming down the catwalks, who’s in the front row and what’s happening behind the scenes and at the parties. GQ is all about British men’s fashion and we are proud to say that we are officially a key part of London Collections Men.
