"I am the fourth generation to run the business and it's so exciting for me and it makes me so proud," said Aronson.

2019 marks Haspel’s 110th year in business. For a company that started in Louisiana, Aronson says it was important to her to make sure the headquarters for Haspel remains in the Bayou State.

Its Crescent City style was best captured by Miles Davis who personified this look on his At Newport 1958 album cover, demonstrating how to wear a soft-shouldered Italian-cut jacket with nonchalance. It was a heyday moment for the fabric and his louche approach is still a style cue worth noting t...
