    You captured his kind demeanor perfectly. The jacket is fantastic, of course, but what makes it so handsome is the man wearing it. Your photographs tell so much more than great clothing, Sart. Thanks.

    Could you comment on the fact that, when you photographed Mr Armani before (as reproduced in your book) you said that he would only be photoraphed against a dark background which showed off his white hair. Yet here vhe allows you to photograph him against a pale sky…???

    you're right Scott, he would still look as quietly sophisticated and smart regardless of who it was. it is so refreshing to constantly see well dressed men whenever I visit here! Older gentlemen in particular who still value their appearance as much as they did in their 20's…that really means something special to me. I just sent you a picture into the vintage photo contest of my mother Karina…I hope you enjoy it!

    I Doubt hes wearing his own brand… thats a simple man….. hes approaching the 80 y/o now…and thats the new 50s … u can do everything when u take goiod care of yourself…. i admire him a lot…. he still makes clothes for every budget available.. and thats a true genius shot…. haute couture for the ones who can pay for it.. and still… the basic for the ones who simply cannot or for the ones who live basic…. i may not like most of his garments… but it doesnt matter… he hit the spot… and i bow my head for him

    Great picture – much more interesting than the heavily doctored picture of him where he appears to be far younger than he really is. His fashion is a bit greige for me but he certainly looks great on this picture and he has had the genius to diversify brands, lines – & successfully so!

    I worked for his company in the late 90's – early 00's. I always admired his class, elegance, and simple style. He looks old here, but still radiates the same classic grace. I may not wear much of his clothes anymore, but I will always be a fan. G-d bless Armani!

    Hail to the King! Elegance personified. I have been a fan of his for 3 decades. His clothes are timeless, almost. The great thing is that you can dress up and/or down, from A/X to Giorgio Armani, and the look is seamless.
