Prince Charles will kick off London's menswear "weekend" in June — also known as London Collections: Men —  with a special reception at St. James palace. With British GQ editor Dylan Jones, Tom Ford, and Burberry's Christopher Bailey already backing the new initiative to support British menswear, Charles's "beyond fashion" presence should provide extra gravitas.
