Item of clothing invented, as the legend would have it, when the Earl of Cardigan found himself playing Mornington Crescent against an untrustworthy frenchman in a chilly arena. Refusing for a second to take his eyes off the dastardly garlic muncher, he had his butler cut the front of a sweater open and hastily attach buttons, allowing him to don the vestment without giving the malodorous gallic drunkard a chance to swindle a win.
