Bold and Elegant, the Cardigan Doesn’t Lie.
Cable design and Marled weave, Davide Cenci Dal 1926 line: reassuring conveyors of reliability.
It opens as if it were a jacket. Buttons—often contrasting—close it. It is the key garment that every man should have in his closet. The exceptional go-with-everything garment with functional, cozy, and comfortable wearability.
We are talking about the cardigan. A noble name that recalls the figure of Gen. James Thomas Brudenell–seventh count of Cardigan, a city on the southwestern coast of Wales–who led the charge of the 600 in the battle of Balaklava, 1854. Crimean War. They say, without any certain proof, that precisely during times of rest and relaxation the general sought reprieve in a wool knitted jacket, that apparently was trimmed with fur.
Cardigan: the title name of Gen. James Thomas Brudenell, the seventh count of the Welsh city of the same name.
The cardigan sweater is a real wildcard; you can slip it on and off quickly especially on those days in between two seasons and it was thanks to inspiration from sports and military uniforms, and fisherman’s garb that it became widespread in the second decade of the 1900s. Both men and women were using it, but it was indisputably with the former that it rose to popularity and was used both with casual and elegant wear, oversized or more close-fitting.
Davide Cenci Dal 1926 presents it this season in a wool and cashmere shawl collar model with large cable stitching in a three-color Marled weave, then matches it with a knit scarf and hat and wears it with a button-down vintage effect corduroy shirt, and stretch cotton twill Dal 1926 five-pocket jeans. An ensemble of ideas and choices that together convey high quality and the concept of respectability and confidence, which are the foundations when you decide to put yourself out there if you want to achieve your goals. You can wear it in all kinds of situations, either work or leisure, and slip it on anytime; the cardigan is that trusty piece of clothing you can always put in the suitcase or keep handy in the car to be ready to face and overcome the sudden appearance of the great cold.
