Cardigans were conceived out of a desire to look good. When General Cardigan, under Field Marshal Raglan, lead The Charge of the Light Brigade in the Battle of Balaclava, his men were dressed in the smart, stylish, knitted jackets he commissioned, and which still bear his name today.
The LEGION cardigan continues the tradition of style coupled with functionality. Designed to keep you warm when it is cool outside, LEGION blurs the line between jacket and cardigan.
LEGION is worked in a bulky wool from the bottom up, featuring seamless construction, saddle sleeves, and folded hems and collar.
