Armani in baggy jeans

Giorgio Armani has thrown down the taupe gauntlet by attacking Savile Row, which he intends to challenge with a new couture line for men called Fatto A Mano Su Misura (hand-made to measure). According to the Times of London, the fan of baggy jeans (seen above in children’s playclothes) mocked the Row as “a bad English comedy,” stuck in the past, and run by men of “limited mentality.”

He further declared, “Men need couture just as women do—something made exclusively for them to define their social position.” If you believe that, please go ahead and order one of his couture suits, which begin at 5,000 pounds.

  5. Somebody better inform mr Armani that there are a legion of tailors in Thailand that can out sew him and you can get a nice vacation + a full new wardrobe for 5,000 pounds. I had so much fun because the tailor let me design my own jackets!
