    A jib is one of the sails on a sailboat. The cut means how it's trimmed. So the phrase means I like your style.

    The jib of a sailing ship is a triangular sail set between the foretopmast head and the jib boom. Some ships had more than one jib sail. Each country had its own style of sail and so the nationality of a sailing ship, and a sailor's consequent opinion of it, could be determined from the jib.

    The phrase became used in an idiomatic way in reference to a person's style and manner.
