Born out of the New Orleans jazz movement, it became a look synonymous with the hazy southern states. Its Crescent City style was best captured by Miles Davis who personified this look on hisAt Newport1958 album cover, demonstrating how to wear a soft-shouldered Italian-cut jacket with nonchalance.
