Listen to LBJ Order Pants From Dallas Clothier Joseph Haggar
I didn't know that there was more to the conversation. A lot more, in fact, including very specific instructions regarding the garment's fit. The Smithsonian has the audio, plus a nice little video to go along with it. A transcript of the best part is after the jump, but you should listen. And even though it's the president, it may be NSFW.
"Now another thing. The crotch down there where you're nuts hang is always a little too tight, so when you make them up, give me an inch that I can let out there because they cut me. It's almost like ridng a wire fence. These are almost -- these are the best I've had anywhere in the United States, but when I gain a little weight, they cut me under there so leave me, you never do have much margin there, let's see if you can't leave me about an inch from where the zipper ends [belch] on back to my bung hole so I can let it out if need to."
Haggar, who is clearly a professional, takes all this very calmly. "You'd like just a little more stride in the crotch?"
That's one way to put it, I guess.
