Merry Christmas Jumper Day!

Friday 13th December is now officially Christmas Jumper Day - and I make that the perfect excuse to publish a pic of Colin Firth as Mark Darcy, aka the most famous Christmas jumper wearer of all time...

Calm down ladies and let's all take a moment to remember the happy time before Helen Fielding bumped off her leading man, but when Christmas jumpers weren't an ironic style statement but an annual embarrassment to be endured. Fast forward 10 years or so and Colin actually looks quite the hipster, brooding in his Rudolph sweater. Who knows, maybe this was the turning point when we all decided novelty knits were actually OK after all? However much we all drooled the dripping wet white shirt Mr Darcy look, it was never going to take off as a viable menswear trend.

Whatever its appeal, the Christmas jumper is now being lauded as the saviour of the High Street as we all rush out to buy one, but before I invest in a novelty knit I need to clear one thing up - is it the point to find the most garish knit known to man or is a nice Nordic intarsia acceptable?
