The cardigan sweater has made a big come back and are as popular as ever. Cardigans are this season’s most popular item and a staple in every man’s closet.

A cardigan is basically a type of sweater (or jumper) that buttons, zips or even ties down the front.

Cardigan sweaters are a classic alternative to a standard blazer or sports coat. You can also mix and match cardigans with tees for a hot look – perfect for any occasion.

Knitted cardigans were named after the 7th Earl of Cardigan. During the Crimean war, he was the first British officer to cross the Russian lines in the famous Charge of the Light Brigade.

the 7th Earl of CardiganHe and his officers wore fur-trimmed or braided woollen jackets to keep them warm in the harsh Crimean winter – they actually looked very different from today’s knitted cardigans.

The garment we now call the cardigan was worn in the British Isles and France by the 17th century.
