: I'm having trouble finding the meaning and origins of the phrase: shave and a haircut

: I've heard it can also be taken a derogatory phrase, but don't know how

It was a fairly standard order in old fashioned men's Barbers Shops and meant what it said. I've never heard of it used in any other context. Have others?
