I do like that coat.
AS is trolling at this point.
I swear on the Elements of Euclid of Alexandria.
Thank you, sir.
<-- What I cut out of all my photos.
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....
AS, surely this is the meme you're looking for
Are those dogs watching some other dogs playing pool?
Love the pic.
Where there are gilded Louis Seize bergeres, there are no dogs playing billiards - the Second Law of Interior Design.
I confess, I had to Google that one.
Worth a re-quote. A crisp, classic look superbly executed.
(minor nit, I'd like to see the PS tamped down a wee bit...)
Well I'm assuming a Coolidge original - half a million bucks now google tells me
Some funny stuff here.
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?
i just like dogs...
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.
The San Francisco has to come out somewhere!
