Who was the Man in the Hathaway Shirt in the Hathaway advertisements?

Baron George Wrangell, descendant of Russian and Italian royalty was the Man in the Hathaway Shirt.

He was working as an artist’s model before advertising executive David Ogilvy chose him for the Hathaway advertisements in the late 1940s.

The eye-patch (cost: 50 cents) was Ogilvy’s idea.
