Armani, Clooney show ageing can be sexy

Giorgio Armani gave his younger rivals a lesson in effortless cool today, showing shirts and suits so casually sexy actor George Clooney says they could help him cope with ageing.
Men wearing broad-shouldered pinstripe suits and dandy shoes strolled down the catwalk in small groups, hands in their pockets or arm-in-arm with chic girls in flowing silk trousers and jauntily tilted Parisian berets.
"It's beautiful. I've only been to one of his shows before, I haven't really been to menswear shows often," Clooney told Reuters after the show, in the middle of Milan fashion week.
"I usually can't wear clothes like that because they are made for men in their 20s, and you've got to understand that when you're ageing, suits become more important."
Leaning against a wall, a champagne glass in his hand and wearing a black suit, Clooney, 45, reflected the slightly rakish yet relaxed style that infused the entire show.
It was the only big-name fashion show this week that had the audience breaking out in spontaneous applause as men with sunglasses paraded loose trousers and tailored waistcoats, cardigans that followed the shape of the back without clinging, and urban suits that had grown-up sex appeal.
"Being sexy as a man is not about being muscular. It's the way he looks at you, the way he moves ... his way of dressing," Armani told reporters after the show.
It was a contrast to Dolce & Gabbana's gym heroes with six-packs who marched down the catwalk in boxer shorts and tight briefs on Sunday, and Miuccia Prada's boys in shiny plastic shorts in primary colours.
Armani preferred loose Bermuda shorts and drawstring trousers as a holiday look, or pyjama-ish shirts with Nehru collars.

Pardon this tease photo gals....if you him to look, and get his friends to look also you need a tease. I know, its real bitchy. But hey!
An irresistible radical chic charmer. This is the United Colors of Benetton man next summer: full of charisma and sophistication, obvious elegance and apparent informality. A mixture for discerning souls who shun banality. Style and mood write the plot for such sophistication, while fabrics, yarns, details and combinations form the soundtrack of this undeniable glamour.Hamptons. Canons of British elegance in white and mid-grey. Blazers and suits can be worn with a free choice of long or knee-length trousers. Shirts worn with a tie, textured sweaters and tennis shirts to wear with rather more informal windcheaters with a safari jacket-look or an immaculate duffle coat.The Friday Club. A weekend look for the week in town: dressing down with style. Prince of Wales check jackets and trousers, pinstripes and denim worn with white, blue or classic-stripe shirts. As well as wide-striped knits and three-button vest tops under simple bomber jackets or trench coats.
Time to Shine. Its time for sport and a look halfway between the fans and the players. Polo shirts and rugby stripes – with feminine versions – badge-emblazoned club blazers, trousers from the terraces and game-playing Bermuda shorts. Dressing in layers is a real winner: T-shirt, faded shirt, pullover and, on top of everything, a short canvas jacket. Linen, cotton, gabardine and denim.
Bohemian Spirit. Here today; tomorrow, who knows? And with bags already packed, ready for new horizons. Washed leather jacket, floral shirt and jeans. Or multi-pocket jeans in ticking stripes, an underwear T-shirt and army-green cotton safari jacket. The elements change but the style’s the same: carefully studied sloppiness.
