LBJ Orders Pants

This is an oldie but a goodie from the Lyndon Johnson White House tapes. President Johnson calls up the head of Haggar Pants and goes into great detail on how he wants them tailored.
President Johnson: Yeah. Now, another thing: the crotch, down where your nuts hang, is always a little too tight. So when you make them up, give me a inch that I can let out there, because they cut there. They're just like riding a wire fence. These are almost—these are the best I've had anywhere in the United States.
Haggar: Fine.
President Johnson: But when I gain a little weight they cut me down there. So leave me... You never do have much margin there, but see if you can't leave me about an inch from where the zipper [belches] ends around under my—back to my bunghole.
Haggar: All right, sir.
