A cardigan is a type of machine or hand-knitted sweater that ties, buttons or zips down the front; by contrast, a pullover does not open in front but must be “pulled over” the head to be worn. The cardigan was named after James Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, a British military commander, following his service in the Crimean War (Source). Over the past few years, cardigans became very popular for men; especially in the music industry. I came up with a list of 8 rappers and 1 blogger wearing a cardigan. Peep my list and vote who rocked it best below:
YMCMB rapper Tyga was spotted wearing a $475 BBC Leather Patch Shooting Zip Cardigan at the 10th annual BMI Urban Awards in Los Angeles, CA. Tyga was also wearing a New York Mets snapback cap, along with a pair of matching Converse sneakers. Tyga’s new album Careless World will be out this Fall.
The talented Chris Brown was spotted getting out of a Maybach in NYC. He was on his way to Good Morning America. Breezy was wearing a $415 BBC Heavyweight Wool Cardigan. This Fall Breezy will headline his “F.A.M.E.” tour with Tyga, Kelly Rowland and T-Pain.
Harlem’s rapper Vado was seen wearing a $198 Rugby Ralph Lauren wool striped toggle cardigan in Young Dro’s video “Polo.” On October 5, Cam’ron and Vado will be releasing their new mixtape Bosses Of All Bosses 3 via eOne/Koch. This is the third installment to their “Boss of all Bosses” sequel.
