The Art of the Christmas Sweater

We’re simple, sartorial folk here at Joseph Wendt Custom Clothiers.  We enjoy good suits, good ties, good uses of color…  The sophistication of the art (ART, we say!) of the Christmas sweater is beyond us.  …Okay, okay, we’re kidding.  We enjoy the delicious, absurdest irony of the hideously ugly Christmas sweater as much as the next guy.  So, in honor of the holiday occasion, we wanted to take a break from things like “being fashionable” and “wearing clothes we aren’t embarrassed by” to take a look at some of the most terrifying, egregiously bad examples of that rarest of art form, the ugly Christmas sweater!

Okay, we're starting relatively sane here.  Dogs.  Everyone loves dogs!
