Put This On: The Story of When Lyndon Johnson Needed To Buy Pants

Put This On tells the story of when Lyndon Johnson needed to buy pants in 1964, animated by Tawd Dorenfeld.

In 1964, Lyndon Johnson needed pants, so he called the Haggar clothing company and asked for some. The call was recorded (like all White House calls at the time), and has since become the stuff of legend. Johnson’s anatomically specific directions to Mr. Haggar are some of the most intimate words we’ve ever heard from the mouth of a President.
