    No and there is no American politician by that name that I know of.
    This guy is no longer alive.

    Perhaps, but in the case in question, first name and last name identify.

    Paleologos,

    I think I figured out who he is. If I'm right this is kinda obscure.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ncil_(Austria)
    Hans Riemer

    The guy didn't do much besides be a regional politician, and even then the available sources and photos on him are scarce. If I hadn't had your hints I wouldn't have ever found him.
    Just food for thought.

    Well, Hans Riemer it is and you are probably right that this is sort of obscure.
    I had read a short article about him shortly before it was my turn to post a question and got the impression he was a historically significant/influential political actor.
    When I realized that the photo of him that I posted was perhaps the only photo of him in the www it was rather late.
    Anyway, you have the ground.

    This one should be better known, and has an interesting history once you figure out who he is.

    Yes it is, quite an interesting story. Diplomat, human rights activist, Irish revolutionary.
    Your go.

    I don't think it's a separate item of clothing, if that's what you mean. He's wearing a surcoat and it looks like the collar is an integral part of it, but I could be wrong.
