Dylan Jones, editor of British GQ and chair of London Collections: Men is contributing a series of guest blogs to on why London is the place to be for men’s fashion. 

Menswear in London has never been more exciting or more comprehensive, and there has never been so much of it. Men expect great clothes at every price level, be that high street, mid-market, designer, luxury or bespoke. They expect quality at any price – and this is something that London delivers. Whether you are shopping in Bond Street or Shoreditch, whether you are taking your credit card down Lamb’s Conduit Street or to Mount Street, or flitting between Jermyn Street, Regent Street and the Kings Road, there is something for every man.

London is the home of menswear. We invented the suit, and in Savile Row we have the most important men’s shopping street in the world. While the Row has always appealed to the establishment, in the last two decades it has opened itself so much, that it now attracts customers from all four corners. From Gieves & Hawkes at one end, to Richard James at the other, from Anderson & Sheppard round the corner, to Patrick Grant’s Norton & Sons, these days the Row offers not just the best in traditional suiting, it offers the very best in contemporary formal wear.

Then there is Matches menswear in Notting Hill Gate, Hunter Gather in Wigmore Street, Hostem in Shoreditch, and so many more places to get the very best menswear there is. There are more lifestyle choices for men than ever before, more places to buy clothes, and more places to wear them.
