Did you know the cardigan is named after James Brudenell, the 7th Earl of Cardigan, a British military commander? Although he has been called "unusually stupid," and "an ass," the Earl of Cardigan was at least known as quite the snazzy dresser!
While cardigans in his day were usually knitted from wool or cotton, you can find updated styles today made of fabrics like fleece and polyester. With added twists like military-inspired details, bold graphics and embellishments, the cardigan is going strong into fall/winter 2010.
