The British Fashion Council released the full schedule for London's fall 2013 menswear shows this morning. It's the second season of men's runways and presentations in the city, after a successful debut on the fashion calendar last June, when Prince Charles even showed up. The three-day-long event includes over 50 designers, ranging from Savile Row stalwarts to some of London's brightest young designers — Christopher Kane, J.W. Anderson, Meadham Kirchhoff, and more. Burberry Prorsum will host "a breakfast presentation," which we can only dream will include a full British fry up even at the risk of getting grease spots on those trenches. And noteworthy additions to the schedule include both Tom Ford and Alexander McQueen presenting their mainline menswear collections in full. Dylan Jones, editor of British GQ and chair of "London Collections: Men," says everyone involved "[is] looking forward to January being bigger and better than last time."

One slight caveat: The shows run from January 7 through 9. That means no excess eating over the holidays, unless you're ready for a very strict New Year's juice cleanse — even street style cameras add ten pounds, you know.
