Ronald Reagan, anno dazumal, sporting a black grenadine or knit tie and the largest herringbone weave I've ever seen. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Montage from the scrapbook of Cecil Beaton...
That should be a relatively well known pre-drape picture (without the St.Edwards crown biggrin.gif) of the Duke of Windsor when Prince of Wales in the early 20s.

I can never imagine Reagan in jeans as far as I can remember he was always in suits or blazers.

You don't have to be a genius to go multi-patterned but it can't hurt.

It is very unlikely that Don Draper would have driven a Pontiac
at the time. He would have had a high-end US luxury car like
a Cadillac or a Lincoln, and because he was in New York where
forieign cars were already popular, possibly a Jag or a Mercedes.

I was merely commenting on the similarity of appearance between Delorean and the Draper character.



However, since you speculated, I googled it and you were spot on regarding the character's vehicles at the point in time of the Delorean photo.
Draper and vehicles (Click to show)
Quote:

Don worked as a used-car salesman when Anna Draper found him. Don enjoyed, on at least one occasion, the company of motorcyclists and hot rod enthusiasts while he was visiting Anna in Southern California. At the beginning of the series, Don drives a 1959 Oldsmobile, then a 1960 Buick Invicta convertible. Later, Don wrecks an unassuming and utilitarian 1961 Dodge Polara, after which he is goaded by Roger Sterling into purchasing an ice blue and white 1962 Cadillac Coupe de Ville. Sterling tells him that the Cadillac is a sign that Don had "arrived." By the start of Season 5, it had been replaced with a 1965 Coupe de Ville, in silver with red leather interior. In the Season 5 episode "Christmas Waltz, as the agency prepares to pitch for the Jaguar account, Don leaves a check as a deposit to take a red 1965 Jaguar E-Type out for a test drive with Joan and without the salesperson. He returns the car later that day.

Good observation. Both dress(ed) in a fashionable style.
Not, in Draper's case, the hardcore Ivy League style that dominated
Madison Ave at the time. As for DeLorean, he was always a bit flashy:

BTW, I owned that '68 Pontiac he is shown with. Mine had "four on the floor"

This simply an amazing picture ...
