The enduring style. Every answer just lays out another reason that this garment is prized not just as a piece of clothing, but a cultural icon in Ireland and the rest of the world.
Worn for centuries by the fishermen of the Aran Islands on their oceanic expeditions and later popularized by Vogue magazine in an unforgettable 1950s photoshoot, there really is nothing that an Irish Aran sweater can’t be.
