Queerty is better as a member
OH SNAP — Continuing our list of vacationing fashion designers comes Giorgio Armani, seen here off the coast of Panarea, Italy, exhibiting what decades in the sun does to a human. (Photos: Bauer-Griffin)
Armani is friggin’ 75 years old, and in light of that fact, looks okay. He never got fat, spent a lot of time on private yachts, caught some rays, but at 75, God willing we get there, any of us would be lucky to look like this in the very late years of life.
Picking on a man of that age? I like queerty, but this is worse than Perez Hilton. Ew.
I hereby give all of us permission to age. It’s ok. You don’t have to look great forever. And you don’t have to worry about it. Most men his age sit in a recliner and complain about 60 Minutes. He’s on a freakin boat with some friends. power to him.
I think he looks great for 75. It’s in bad taste to ridicule someone for simply getting older.
I’d do him.
“I think he looks great for 75. It’s in bad taste to ridicule someone for simply getting older.”
Do you read the “Comments” often? Only the young and beautiful read this site.
Queerty has crossed the line. We all age differently and remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Shame on you!
May I never live long enough to bear witness to my own body rotting and wasting away–a prisoner in a bag of dying flesh; as giorgio is. Cover up, old man, you’re frightening the pets. Christ…there’s no quite as bad old man body.
at least joan rivers wouldn’t walk around in a bikini. EUropeans have no sense of shame. They need it in cases like this.
He still looks better than Donatella…
@Tank your remarks are as idiotic as I’m sure you are. Every one ages. You are going to be old. It happens. Your insensitivity is not surprising, as most young gay men are vapid and brainless. If it wasn’t for those old queens, you wouldn’t have the freedom to show your stupidity. If you don’t want to see old wrinkly men, don’t look!! I’m sure Giorgio and his friends would appreciate their privacy.
How old is Tank in real years, not internet years? I forget. Do you subtract 5 years or 10 years from your real age.
Let’s see you waste a feature and eight huge picture slots on some sagging old man in a speedo, vacationing with his saggy old friends, when you could spent the energy and space on a Gratuitous Skin layout of, say, Alessandro Calza? Yes, some of us have said we’d like them older than your typical 20-year-old twink selections, but you’re not funny here. Not too effin’ bright queerty.
“May I never live long enough to bear witness to my own body rotting and wasting away”
I second that. Here is hoping that you don’t live long enough to age.
Once again this website goes out of it’s way to find disgust in the human body.
To whomever edits this section, got enough appearance issues?
Youth and beauty are finite commodities. Last summer I met the bitterest bouncer on Fire Island, you can tell that from 1975-1995 he was the hottest man in the room. In 2008 he can no longer trade on that currency. Still a good looking man, but now enraged that he is no longer young, sniping at twinks etc. You have to work on what’s inside ladies, youth is not forever and is “wasted” on the young…as they say. This is the type of mindset that got Versace killed…anyone remember Andrew Cunanan?
I’m 28. I’m going to be 29 soon.
There’s a lot in the human body to be disgusted with. Read Swift. It’s a disgusting machine.
‘Europeans have no sense of shame’
Americans have too much. Oh yes, and too much guilt, superiority, self-righteousness, bigotry, hate, violence…….
And yet surely there’s a happy medium…LOL!
Such as a bland, MOR, self-denying excuse for self-expression? Hope you’ll be very happy with it.
He actually looks good for an elderly man. You guys MUST BE so perfect looking and CERTAINLY will never age. Get a grip!
Yeah, because the options are clearly ONLY having the taste to not wear a speedo when you look like the cryptkeeper, or a three piece suit at all times, everytime. Ass.
@TANK: or the burka equivalent known as board shorts. Let’s go back to all-in-one, loose fitting swim wear. Sure the Founding Fathers would have approved.
I thought you guys, were all about freedom of speech, thought and expression. Tank, take a look at most of the comments on this site, they champion all these They’re from free thinkers who probably treat all people with dignity and respect. Grow up, get an education, and start living in the 21st century.
It would be the cognitive capacity of your kind to equate taste (and in the case, its clear absence) with free speech. That was never my contention. I don’t wish to limit his right to wear a merkin in public, showing his aged out, repulsive 75 year old body in all of its former glory (mummified pork rind)…LOL! This isn’t a freedom of expression issue, and never was. It’s my right to criticize his taste, though. So perhaps you’d like to limit that…and it is you who are against freedom of expression.
And ben franklin wouldn’t be caught alive in a getup like that.
He looks pretty good for a 75 year-old white man (been to any senior citizen centers recently?). Plus he’s worth an estimated FIVE BILLION Dollars! I’d take that over some poor, tina twink any day!!
@TANK: Being tasteless yourself is not the best way to rail against the allegedly tasteless.
Really? No one has mentioned how hilarious the title is? Bravo, Queerty.
Queerty is becoming more cynical, and I unfortunately don’t find myself as much as in love with the site as I used to. I love queerty, but I hope that if Queerty continues slurring people and trying to bring them down, that they at least stop slurring Perez Hilton for doing the same thing… it is extreme hypocrisy, something that the gay community is, at least from my eyes, completely opposed to. Armani is a great figure for gays and we should treat him with the respect he deserves.
How is georgie a great figure for gays? Oy.
I mean at least he’s alive at that age and still able to flaunt his stuff in a tiny bathing suit. The recent death of author E. Lynn Harris at 54 (my age at present) makes me thankful for each day I have left. I spend much time lifting weights and doing cardio exercises at my gym and last night’s conquest was a hot boy of 39. You must take care of yourself.
Armani: built a company, created thousands of jobs over the years, created works of art, worth five billion dollars, more good sexual encounters than most people have hot meals, in pretty good shape at 75, homes/planes/boats aplenty, finest foods daily, always surrounded by friends.
Tank: Spends time sitting on his ass snacking and obsessively commenting on a blog.
Wonder how Tank will turn out at 75?
If it’s anything like he turned out, I’d rather not.
Hmmm, personal planes and good sex make a person worthwhile…and a tribute to the “gay” community (he’s isn’t even gay).
Because armani didn’t just turn out…he looks like he turned inside out.

ok i understand at 75 he’s in a good shape.but geee, he is not in good enough shape to be wearing that tiny bathing suit.he was wearing that when he was younger and right now he should dress like the old man that he is.(and there’s nothing wrong with dressing your age). To me he looks like those people who spend their entire lifes fighting aging.
This is going to be Madonna at 75.at the rate that she’s going, she’ll still be trying to fit into her leotards.
Would I rather be Armani at 75 on a yacht, or Tank at 29 on a computer?
Bring me that damned speedo.
Come on, Tank, show us your pic. Let’s see the Funions-munching blog comment troll with the name that describes his waistline, and compare it to the lean billionaire Italian he’s getting bitchy about.
@Body Beautiful: Amen!
Anyone who looks at these photos of Armani and doesn’t see a rather enviable septuagenarian can go fuck themselves. Really. What the fuck do you expect a 75 year old to look like – Ashton Kutcher? Queerty has really gone down the fucking toilet. Any of the news items can be found on other sites, with less snarky commentary. Just because Obama – potentially the most pro-gay POTUS in history – hasn’t yet signed on to everything gay, this site trashes him and potentially does more harm than good. Sadly, the only original thing on this site is Morning Goods – endless shots of flawless and perfect young specimens, guaranteed to lower the self-esteem of everyone who sees them.
Leave Armani alone, assholes. The man has accomplished much, and he’s done it on his own terms, and he’s always been himself. He looks pretty fucking great for 75. Just wait till you’re in a fucking wheelchair on oxygen in some home in New Jersey.
Hell, I’m embarrassed to walk around in a Speedo right now, and I look ten times better than this guy… okay, now let’s rephrase that.
I’m AFRAID to walk around in a Speedo, even though I look ten times better than this guy.
This guy has got guts. He’s got chutzpah. Moxie. I hope I’m this brave soon, or I’m gonna waste half of my decent walking-around-in-a-Speedo years. :)
I’d say he looks good for 55. Meanwhile, that photo of the guy who runs this website with Anne Hathaway didn’t look half as good.
Where’s Tank? It’s hard to take pot shots at a successful senior citizen when you’ve got to cover those shifts at the Olive Garden.
@Coke: its a cultural thing, and nothing to be ashamed of, I bet Armani’s been wearing a speedo since he was old enough to jump in the water. What the horrified people in America think means nothing to Euro’s who think the majority of Americans are small minded. I was fortunate enough to grow up in Japan where nudity is the issue it is here (those Puritans really screwed with every one of you all) and proudly pranced around in a speedo when it was appropriate, and buck naked when it wasn’t.

Don’t you just love Americans telling people in other nations what they should do? Keep it up, since that’s been working so well over recent years. So much for the land of individuality and respect for doing your own thing.
Anyone who cringes at Armani in a speedo at 75 obviously hasn’t spent much time outside of Boise, and specifically hasn’t spent time at Europe’s sunny spots. It’s an entirely natural thing to see a family having a picnic on a small inlet beach, grandpa might be in a speedo, and grandma might be topless. And its only Americans who do a double take, or do the “Ewwww!” expression. It’s called a body, it changes over time, for everyone, everyone. And a lack of shame about the body as a natural thing yields a very healthy attitude and respect towards it, indeed.
i’d hit it.
