London Fashion Week is best known as catnip for trend-obsessed women. But this year, its official "Men’s Day" stepped up as the hot ticket for any guy wanting to up his fashion game.

That and the fact that London will soon be pegged (if it hasn’t already) the fashion cash cow. Here, we highlight 15 British Menswear Designers You Should Know.
