You might not know the name, but you'll know the sweater—The Dude wore it in The Big Lebowski. But before it became slacker chic, the Cowichan sweater had established a following in British Columbia, Canada, where the style was developed in the mid-19th century. The Canadian Sweater Company, founded in 1977, continues the tradition: Each of its Cowichan sweaters is hand knit by a single artisan using Salish weaving techniques from start to finish. Oversize fit. Hits below hip. Standing collar. Front zip. Rib trim at cuffs and hem. Front pockets. Import.
