The Rise and Fall of H.R. Haldeman



Two classic pictures of H.R. Haldeman. One at a 1968 conference sporting the perfect soft button-down collar with repp tie (his lapel appears like its wilting in the Florida heat). Also, his 1974 mug shot, displaying the classic trouser cut, plenty of rise but tapering through the knee toward the ankle.

A felonious flat-top completes the package.

The button-down in the first photo is great. I have a few older Brooks Brothers shirts that have a wider collar spread like this. Classic.

He looks like an insurance salesman.

k.s. anthony - He does have a bit of the juvenile delinquent look, doesn't. Well, he went to UCLA, what do you expect?

heavytweed - The shirt matches the tie well.

I think the scan is just uneven. Look at his tie and collar.
