    If there is one man who has had a seismic influence in mens fashion during the last 30 years it is Armani. I have a few of his made to measure suits and they fit and look like nothing else I have ever worn….classic, elegant and understated. Thanks Mr. Armani.

    not only that, but that he’s been doing this excellent for so long is much more a tribute.

    Yes, he looks really wonderful I hope he has been in better health this year…
    He did say in an interview that he worked way to hard and now it look’s like the heath scare has mellowed him and perhaps he is working less and enjoying life in a different way….

    Just remember Scott to, balance your life with family. love, and a little cafe life to keep yourself in check and you too can look like him with some money in your pocket…

    in his 70s, amaaazing!……I have to definitely agree…except for me, the female version of course lol

    A man that truly loves what he does and it shows.

    He most certainly is an inspiration, he gets up early every single morning and works out, no matter what. That kind of dedication has paid off.

    In all likelihood I may not be as rich as him by the time I’m 70. However, I’m grateful for being fit and relatively happy at 59.

    Give me a break!!

    He has churned our bland fashion for how long? ‘Well groomed’ is as nice as I can be.

    I might be the only one, but that shirt looks too tight and slinky to me. Even though Armani is impressive looking for a man of his age.

    I’d gladly trade extreme fitness and wealth for happiness and the company of good friends.

    Yes!he is a living legend!The shiny full lycra tee though its like “Berlousconi”..Thankfully,Sart,that is in black &white..

    @tor…yes, I agree ;). Within that DNA i think it’s their devotion and daily involvement in family….and family in business. Just look at all the fashion/fabric
    dynasties especially in Milano and area. From my experience, their eating together, and well, is like a sacrament, along with speaking up, real loudly and with enthusiasm, and an inbred respect for and devotion to your elders and ….oh, and wine, lots.

    Besides Mr. Armani’s legendary style, talent and god-like looks, I also admire how carefully he has handled his fame. Not a hint of scandal, as far as I know…ever. Just the right amount of mystery about him.

    You know that rhetorical question, “who’s your dream dinner partner”? Bingo. He’s alwyas been my numero uno pick. Can you imagine dressing for that dinner? Mama mia.

    A girl can dream!

    Exquisite photo, Scott. How on earth did you hold the camera steady?

    Also, love the former one you shot on the street that lucky day, and his graciousness to you. You, my friend, are well on your way.

    And, I will never, ever forget your excellent life tip; Mr. Armani likes to be photographed against a dark background.

    He does still look very fit for his age, maybe a bit too tan

    Forget it! He’s Italian. He was born this way ;)

    Although I do not know him in person I feel he’ s an adorable man. Maybe because his eyes have a sincerity and warmth that does not match with the commonly accepted attitude people of his calibre have.

    Kisses from Greece!

    But don’t care to be rich and fit at his age.
    Being healthy ok that’s all…

    Hard work and passion … that keeps you fit and fabulous at any age!

    Oh my gosh! I know! He looks great for his age, and I love his yacht! I once saw a feature of it and he spoke about how he’s obsessive about working out and keeping his yacht clean. Sexy! Sexy!

    Above all, be comfortable in your own skin by your seventies,
    it’s a little sad if one’s not. He lacks style and dignity in that top.

  42. Brendon

    This picture says one thing. Success.

    To be relevant, to be as vibrant, and yes…to be as yoked as he is at his age?

    This is what I wish.

    I still have an Armani t-shirt from the 80′s; tattered but still has that sleek Armani profile.

    Proud to be Italian…but most all proud of Him!!

    I really dislike this entry! Mr. Schulman, this man’s work and visage are really creating those thoughts? Maybe the visage part, but to drop the work aspect while mentioning the rewarded part does not ring true for your fine sensibility… year’s of clicking on your site, this felt awkward. Get back to looking at August Sander…immediately. Love your work.

    They way you’re goin’, Scott honey, you WILL!

    Not only rich and fit…he’s one of the few designers heading towards their 80′s who’s still making clothes I wish I had the body to wear. I assume he spends a lot of time having fun because he doesn’t need to do any navel gazing in his work.
    Having just looked at T Gautier’s latest…he must be having fun too! It’s lovely to see people just doing what they love and doing it really well.

    A fit body and lots of money – why do these strike me as rather limiting and remarkably shallow aspirations?

  54. Verychiclist

    October 2, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    “that rich and fit” is a very shallow way of thinking…
    You could talk about a lot of things about Mr. Armani: his genius, his talent in creating chic and timeless clothes, his incredible sense of style, his generosity in charity and so on…
    Think that money and muscles are very limiting aspirations…This is very disappointing…

    Just don’t dream about his tan… it’s the weird thing about GA!!!

    Even being “orange”, he is absolutely amazing. Iconic.

    Respect. The Sart understands Armani has earned it,deserves it and wears it well.

    What a gauche statement, and shallow to boot. You should applaud him for his achievements in design, not his worth or physical appearance.

    I still love this shot. So perfect!

    WOW, he’s fit! Respect!
