Do you have to wear a Christmas jumper to work? Or do you like wearing a festive sweater on Christmas day? It’s a growing Christmas tradition for fellows to wear a bright woollen during the yuletide celebrations. But while some find it fun to pull on the most outrageous bit of kitsch they can find, many of us prefer something a little more subtle. 

Here’s our ultimate guide to 8 extremely tasteful men’s Christmas jumpers…

1. Tasteful patterned Christmas jumper

If you’re looking for a tasteful Christmas jumper which looks good throughout the holiday season and beyond, a Fair Isle sweater is a great choice. A traditional jumper featuring a distinctive snowflake pattern and colourful contrasting yarns, a Fair Isle is a great way to look festive without giving anyone a migraine.

2. Subtle patterned Christmas jumper

If you’re looking for a Fair Isle that dials down to something a little more reserved, we have just the right range of sweaters to meet your needs. With navy, wine, and slate also featuring in the collection, this is a jumper that talks rather than shouts, but still retains the original Fair Isle charm.

3. Mulled wine coloured Christmas jumper

Not everybody likes, or indeed suits, patterned jumpers. If that’s you, how about going for relatively bright block colours? This wine-coloured fisherman’s jumper is a warm, 100% wool sweater that’s great to wear at Christmas but also looks good throughout the cooler months.

4. Textured Christmas jumper

For a rugged outdoor Christmas sweater that’s perfect for post turkey walks, you can’t beat a simple, rugged Aran knitted jumper with its chunky cabling. The original jumpers of the fisherfolk of the Aran Islands, the patterns trace their roots to antiquity, with different clans adopting a unique design. Wear your Aran with cords and flat cap, and if you need a coat to keep the rain off, a wax jacket matches the country vibe.

5. Elegant Christmas jumper 

Christmas jumpers can be stifling, but not when you opt for a 50/50 wool and cotton blend jumper. These vibrant block coloured-sweaters are very festive and while they’ll keep you warm, you won’t melt. Wines, browns, greens and dark blues are wonderful winter colours, making these pullovers an excellent choice from autumn right through to the spring.

6. Sophisticated roll-neck Christmas jumper

For a Christmas look that’s as cool as it is festive, check out our range of wool-mix roll-neck jumpers. Ideal for wearing with dark moleskins, contrasting cord jacket and sleek Chelsea boots, this look covers you for festive drinks, trips to the theatre, meals out and dinner with friends.

7. Festive alternative to the Christmas jumper

For those of us who don’t do Christmas jumpers, a classic men’s cardigan makes an excellent alternative. It’s relaxed, comfortable and lends your look a classy retro vibe that goes well with jeans, chinos, or smart wool rich trousers.

8. Perfect Christmas jumper for layering

A wool mix tank top is the perfect way to make sure you’re not too hot under your jacket this Christmas. Layer up for midnight mass, your local carol service, or wassailing – wear yours with a smart Tattersall shirt, tactile cords and a tweed jacket.

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without the comfort of a woolly jumper, but with something from our wide range of men’s sweaters you can be sure of a very cosy Christmas indeed.
