Top 5 Christmas jumpers

By Gavin Jewkes, 7 December 2013

Pulling on a tacky Christmas knit is fast becoming our favourite yuletide tradition, just behind enjoying a glass of Baileys while listening to Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas on repeat…

But if you’re yet to surrender yourself to Christmas and all its ridiculousness, perhaps this rundown of the best festive jumpers from the movies will shove you into the spirit.

Looking for good reasons why this film franchise was pushed to a third instalment proves difficult, but it’s probably so that we can all heap praise on Tim Allen for sporting such a powerful reindeer patterned jumper.

Softening the image of a man who played TV's most notorious gangster is no mean feat. Whoever coerced James Gandolfini into wearing this snowflake jumper deserves a strong pat on the back and a stiff drink.

Sadly, we don't stock Rudolph jumpers. But if we did, we hope we could pull off a red-nosed reindeer turtleneck just as self-assuredly as Colin Firth.

'What does Santa wear on his downtime?' a question that no one asked, but that Paul Giamatti has answered by wearing a knitted vest while starring in Fred Claus.

This jumper has a 'Ho Ho Ho' trim on it, and that's alright by us. It may not be easy being green, but it sure as heck doesn't affect your taste in festive knits.
