Since Giorgio Armani introduced the unconstructed jacket in the '70s and began melding the traditionally tailored styles of business attire with the more comfortable aspects of leisure wear, nothing has been the same. This exquisite book of exquisite looking young men--beautiful yet very real looking--was published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York from November, 1990 to January, 1991. Fifteen years of Aldo Falli photographs, commissioned by Armani, interpret as much about clothes for men from fall-winter 1975 to fall-winter 1990 as they do about advertising techniques or hairstyles of a given period.
