The ugly Christmas Sweater ‘thing’ has gotten pretty huge over the last few years. If you’re a devotee of the trend, then you’re going to want to see apparel-maker Numskull’s brand new series debuting this season.
Who wouldn’t want to be seen around town on a snowy December night in a baby blue sweater (or as they’re better known – ‘jumpers’), bedecked with the cutest little AT-AT’s you’ve ever seen? No, that’s not a trick question, as Numskull’s latest line of winter-wear is of the ‘Christmas sweater’ variety.
And yes, that means sweaters that are not only bright and seasonally-appropriate, but also carrying the imagery of massive pop culture properties stretching from video games to movies. Are you a fan of Doctor Who, Fallout 4, Street Fighter, Star Wars, Sonic The Hedgehog, or PlayStation? Yep, then you want to see these bad boys.
This isn’t toss away junk either, by the way. Numskull says all of the above are officially licensed from their respective properties, and are crafted wholly in the UK. These are indeed knitted as well, which means that they aren’t sweatshirts. They’re real, honest to goodness Christmas jumpers, but with Ryu and Ken Hadoken-ing snowflakes on them. And if that doesn’t make you want one, I truly don’t know what would.
