LETTER:Armani is my hero

From Mrs Christina Burton

Sir: So that new concept for the Nineties, John Birt ("Armanism", 12 June), has several Armani suits. My husband, Humphrey, 64, a former Birt colleague, has only one piece of Armani clobber - and non tax-deductible at that. Obviously it is an Eighties leftover.

Armani, Giorgio, may be unworldly and corrupt, but he is my hero. His classy women's clothes made it acceptable and chic for us to turn up in trousers and flat shoes just about everywhere you want to go. What a liberator! Much more interesting to mankind than equating Armanism with creative tax-return forms.

Yours sincerely,


London, W14
