I keep hearing that the cardigan is making a comeback. When was it ever gone? For some unknown reason the most comfortable of “sweaters” every once and a while takes a beating because some fashion icon has decided to administer last rites. Interestingly the ongoing debate on the cardigan seems very much in tune with the ongoing historical debates about the valor of the 7th Earl of Cardigan the famous commander (and after whom the sweater is named) of the Light Brigade who led the charge during the Crimean War’s Battle of Balaclava. And so goes the debate about the cardigan. Personally I have always found it the perfect understated sweater that allows you to wear pretty much anything underneath, but still forces you to wear something. I know that many of you see it as “old fashioned”, but trendy comes and goes never to return, old fashioned never really fades away.
