Reintroducing...Regrettable Sweaters

There are a lot of ugly sweaters ( jumpers / jerseys ) in this world, but it seems that Christmas sweaters as a genre are disproportionately unattractive.

Do you have a terrible holiday sweater or sweatshirt hiding in your closet? Do you have a jolly jumper that would put you on Stacy and Clinton's naughty list? Is your under-bed storage hiding something truly cringe-worthy or just plain horrifying? Do you wish that the rest of us could share your pain?

Or have you ever been out shopping, cruising the aisles for that perfect pair of jeans, and experienced the horror of a sneak-attack Santa sweater? Regrettable Sweaters is a place to share your anguish.

Include your name / alias, blog URL (if you have one), story of the sweater (how it came to cast its tacky pall across your holiday season), and add a caption if you wish. Please don't steal other people's work (from Flickr, etc.) without giving credit to your source.


  1. I've been thinking of asking everyone who attends my Christmas party to find a horrid sweater or sweatshirt to wear.

  2. Sally has a great idea - the bad taste Christmas sweater party. This one in the picture is awful. Truly awful.

  3. My Mom has a penchant for these beasties - I'll see if I can dig up some good ones for you!
