Have you noticed a phenomenon on TV recently where all the cool guys are wearing what used to be called cheesy Christmas knits? You know the ones, with reindeer and santa motifs and all in primary colours of red and green? They are so geeky that they have actually become rather cool? A current term for this new trend has been coined by discerning fashionistas, and just so you know, you should be calling this new style ‘CHERDY’, as in chic and nerdy, and the more garish and bright the better. From Ian Waite on Strictly It Takes Two, in a rather fetching red and white number, to the whole of the Come Dine With Me comedians Christmas special last week. Everywhere you look, you cannot fail but notice that Christmas knits for men are really taking off.
And it’s not just santa and snowmen motifs that have been catching our eye, but those traditional old classic and blocky fairisle patterns you used to see in old movies set in Scotland. Now literally anything with a chunky knit in a colourful hue and sporting some Christmas logo is de rigeur! But don’t take my word for it, check out some of the best (and worst!) Christmas knits for men. All we need now is a roaring fireplace and some mulled wine for the stereotype to be complete!
