Few, if any, represents the exact opposite of Donald Trump's personality as well as the special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, including the way to dress.
If the american president likes to fight with arms in too-big suits, with too-long ties, as he holds the box before the press and the public, prefer Robert Mueller to say nothing, despite the fact that many wanted nothing more than to hear him speak.
even after the success he met with in the so-called Rysslandsutredningen, which began in may 2017, in order to examine whether there was any impact from the Russian side ahead of the presidential elections in 2016, he has said a peep. On the issue of whether he had any comment after a successful trial, he let a staff reply via e-mail with a single word: ”nope”.
But it's not just mueller's, today increasingly rare, the ability to not let his mouth go at the earliest opportunity that has given him fans in the circuits, which are usually not of particular interest for the elderly gråmelerade prosecutors in Washington DC. It is also his way to combine the silence with an unusually accurate fashion style.

A professor of american history at Penn State University, described him recently as a man who ”dresses as if it were in 1956, and Frank Sinatra playing on the radio and Eisenhower is president”.
also what led to american Vogue called Robert Mueller for ”AMERICA's new sweetheart”, and the magazine the New Yorker named him to the ”style icon”. It is a consistent style that consists of dark suits, discreet geometric patterned ties in the correct length and – always – a välpressad white shirt.

He wore it already as the head of the FBI. He took office in 2001, and got off to a flying start on 11 september of the same year. During his time (up to 2013) underwent FBI major changes, then the counter-terrorism began to be a priority.
, who wrote the book ”The threat matrix. Inside Robert Mueller's FBI and the war on global terror”, asked him about his faiblesse for white shirts and got an unexpectedly philosophical reply, he said. Robert Mueller said that the classic white shirt in this turbulent time, became a clear symbol of something unchangeable, a kind of trygghetstecken, which could help the FBI agents to not to lose focus.
the FBI was still the FBI had sought.
White shirts with clean collars and cuffs, soon became a symbol for the men with power and influence that did not have to take a dump down by hard work.
And in the wrong, he was really not. Overall, a white shirt, long a symbol of the spine and morals, and the cleanliness. Even in the 1600s were scholars convinced that white linen was the body cleaner than ever before a bath could do by that it effectively absorbed the sweat.
But it was not for everyone. The more white the linen came to symbolize cleanliness – which were connected to spirituality – the clearer it began to appear in paintings and portraits of the upper class, who are happy to let a piece of the white shirt glimpse.
clean collars and cuffs, soon became a symbol for the men with power and influence that did not have to take a dump down by hard work. Something that still persists in English-speaking countries where the term ”white collar” and ”blue collar” are used to distinguish those who work at the office, and those that do not.
First, in the 1900s, after the first world war, began the white shirt become a common garment for many men in the middle class. Trend-conscious men sought, instead, to shirts with color and pattern, and the white shirt came to be associated with präktighet, and cleverness.
And it is the tradition that Robert Mueller maintains and – in a new age of turbulence – has become appreciated for.Women in white: Marlene Dietrich, Patti Smith and Katharine Hepburn. Photo: IBL and TT
