The style of the cashmere cardigan sweater has been at the uppermost level of men's and women's clothing styles since it first appeared in the late 1800s. The cardigan sweater was named for the 7th Earl of Cardigan, James Brudenell, who popularized the style following his time spent overseas during the Crimean War. The design of the cardigan owes its uniqueness to be able to fasten it down the front with either buttons or a zipper.
