Lord Raglan (1788) was in the Battle of Waterloo (1815) wounded in his right arm, which subsequently had to be amputated. Lord Raglan’s tailor developed clothes for Lord Raglan, that made it easier for him to get dressed and eased his mobility. The sleeve was extended to the collar, leaving a diagonal seam from underarm to collarbone, today known as the Raglan Sleeve.
Lord Raglan later participated with Lord Cardigan, another well-known name related to knitwear, in the Crimean war (1855), where Lord Raglan died due to illness.
The Raglan Sleeve gained popularity for sewn leisure- and sportswear due to the enhanced mobility and was first mentioned in Webster´s American Dictionary in 1864. Raglan Sleeves in knitwear was made from around 1912.
