* Young FrankSinatra Music/FrankSinatra would often carry his coat over his shoulder.

Added DiffLines:

* To suggest a point that is relevant here: in Napoleonic times and afterwards, Hussar cavalry regiments popularised the ''pelisse'', a form of truncated fur-lined coat that was not meant to be worn at all - it was draped over one shoulder so that when parading or promenading, it was designed to look like a cool accessory; when riding it would fan out behind, looking like a shortened cape flying in the breeze.

* The international version of ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' had a variant with Nacrene City gym leader Leona, who carried her apron that way. (she was wearing it in the Japanese version, but it was feared she'd seem too mammy-like to American players, since she's black. Oddly, though, the original sprite's back in the sequel games.)
