Alas, no one was really taking their wardrobe cues from lowly fishermen back then, but they would take them from a hero such as Brudenell, so the design became popular across the British empire and eventually the world. Brudenell’s official title was the 7th Earl of Cardigan, so, naturally, his signature piece of knitwear became known as the Cardigan”. Read more
