These Christmas Sweaters for Men Will Put You in the Right Mood

Get into the spirit of Christmas with these not-ugly sweaters for men.
Comments

The holidays bring the tradition of wearing Christmas sweaters, clothing notorious for their gaudy designs, but are actually the best for keeping yourself warm.  

While no one can point to when exactly the idea of ugly Christmas sweaters came about, there are a few landmark moments that you can review: The '80s, for example, had National Lampoon’s Chevy Chase and Bill Cosby on The Cosby Show sporting these hideous pullovers with questionable color patterns.

Still, the human race is nothing if not contradictory, and fashion has co-opted these “ugly” Christmas sweaters into something more apt for today’s style sensibilities. With the holiday season upon us, here are some not-ugly Christmas sweaters to keep you warm and stylish for the yuletide.

This knitwear is decked out in icy blue shades, yet there’s something warm about it (it's likely from the grainy gray shade). What’s great about the color scheme is how it can go with practically anything in your closet.

While it’s not a hand-loomed sweater, Pull & Bear has done a rather impressive job of mimicking the Jacquard pattern with a print. Its color scheme looks about as classic as it can get, too.

For a graphic Christmas sweater, this one feels rather old-school: a line drawing of a house on a navy background. This collection, in particular, was inspired by British painter Christopher Wood.
