"I like the cut of your Jib, kid"
by babino April 17, 2006
An old sailor's term for one's intangible qualities. Often judged on first impression.
I've taken a fancy to the cut of your jib and I'd like you to accompany me on the voyage.

The jib is a head sail used for sailing down wind and some say that it is sailor slang for the face. Hence, to like the cut of your jib is a complement as to the shape of your face.
Spying an attractive young lady across the bar, Rusty approached her and said, "I like the cut of your jib". He was duly rewarded with a pint of ale in the face.
