The cardigan

12 - Casaco de malha

In The Gentlemen, Bernhard Roetzel states the three distinguished advantages of the cardigan compared to the sweater. “It can be opened, thus, regulating the temperature, it can be dressed and undressed without damaging the hairdressing or taking off the glasses, and usually there’s a small pocket for cigarettes, keys and change.” When I was a child I thought this garment was destined only for old people. Today, with less hair to comb, I can understand its versatility. H&M and PG seem to agree. It’s easy to find them in wool or cotton, one colour, stripes or diamonds.
