Schoeneman Oxford-weave Dacron and Cotton Blazers
Ascots By Dumont
Photography: Reid Miles

Reid Miles was a graphic designer and photographer best known as the  prolifically creative designer of album covers for the jazz record label Blue Note.  Miles designed hundreds of  L.P. covers for Blue Note often using co-founder Francis Wolff's edgy photography. His incorporation of novel modern graphics, standing alone or alongside the photographs, complemented the modern feel and sound of mid- century jazz.

John Coltrane, Lou Donaldson, Kenny Burrell, Sonny Rollins, Hank Mobley, Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, Freddy Redd, Herbie Hancock, Donald Byrd -  a sample of the artists produced by the label  established in 1939 and still around today.
