A type of knitted clothing that has an open front is popularly known as a cardigan. The term originally referred to knitted sleeveless vest, but later its usage expanded to various garments. Cardigans are generally buttoned or zipped. A wardrobe that is tied is considered to be a robe. Also pullover is worn over the head and it doesn't open in the front like cardigan. Cardigans can be either manufactured by machines or can be hand-knitted.
Cardigans are synced up with shirts or inside suit jackets as a form of casual. It is considered as a formal wear for either gender and is preferably worn in the cold weather. Cardigans are available in wide variety of designs. They can be teamed up with any clothing and serve the purpose of both formal wear and casuals.
Men particularly prefer wearing cardigans over other forms of woolen clothing considering the comfort and easy match-up feature of cardigans. Cardigans definitely promote the mature look of a man and portray them as grown-up and responsible. Definitely, not a biker's thing; cardigans look good on working men, professionals, retired and ageing and more particularly, young dads.
