    After lunch today, wearing a Brooks Brothers herringbone tweed jacket and University stripe OCBD, Ben Silver tie, Thomas Pink pocket square, J Crew sweater vest, L L Bean cord trousers, socks I got somewhere over 30 years ago, and Allen-Edmonds for Brooks Brothers shoes....

    Where there are gilded Louis Seize bergeres, there are no dogs playing billiards - the Second Law of Interior Design.

    Worth a re-quote. A crisp, classic look superbly executed.

    (minor nit, I'd like to see the PS tamped down a wee bit...)

    That, I had to google.

    But, really, Coolidge's rather steadfast approach doesn't provide the airiness required to temper the heavily-decorated forms of Louis XVI-type furniture. Have you even read the (now, sadly gone) "Coherent Combinations in iGent Interior Design" thread?

    As someone has now brought up the subject of Coolidge prints, I have one of them ("His Station And Four Aces") at home. For those of you who have read Paul Fussell's book, the Coolidge print is "ironic", since I used to work for the Santa Fe Railway.

    For those who are wondering about the other two pictures in this picture, one of them is a Maxfield Parrish "Wynken, Blyken, and Nod" (a story that my Mother used to read to my brother and I when we were younger) and the other is a photograph of my Grandfather (who was the U.S. representative of a British firm that was in the China Trade) and two of his Japanese business associates all quite drunk in a geisha house somewhere in Japan right after the end of the Boxer Rebellion when they were on their way to China to see what was left of their business.
