About Big Lebowski Cardigan
Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski has the ultimate California slacker style. If you want to add a touch of The Dude's casual cool look to your wardrobe, a "Big Lebowski" cardigan is key. The cardigan in the movie is a Pendleton Wool Mills design called the Westerly. Pendleton has been producing the Westerly since 1974, but it launched into popularity when "The Big Lebowski" rocketed into pop culture orbit. The Dude's cardigan is cream colored with a dark brown and light brown geometric knit pattern, but Pendleton also produced the Westerly in other color combos, such as red and black. Although the cardigan is the most popular design, there is a sweater version featuring the same memorable knit pattern. A number of other cardigans also offer a similar look. Pendleton found inspiration for its iconic design in the Cowichan sweaters of the First Nations people of Vancouver Island, Canada. Traditional Norwegian knit designs are also close lookalikes. Whether you want a Pendleton Westerly to call your own or you are satisfied with a look-alike, you can find a "Big Lebowski" cardigan by browsing the vast inventory on eBay.
