It’s getting to that time of year when you can’t escape the party invites where the dress code demands that you show up in an ugly Christmas jumper of some description. It’s rare that you can feel any kind of pride when you’re wearing an ugly Christmas jumper unless it is truly the most magnificently ugly piece of clothing in the room, but that’s a difficult feat to achieve when pretty much everyone has gone to the same manic Primark section to buy theirs.
That’s why we’ve put together a list of excellent geeky Christmas jumpers you can feel pride in donning. Whether you want to let everyone know that winter is indeed coming or you just want to wish them a Merry Sithsmas, you’ll find something that’ll help you stand out from the bright nylon clad crowd.
Between trying to buy the right presents all on time, and continuing to get up for work despite the cold, dark weather you’ve probably absolutely earned the right this winter to wear a jumper that says you’re Wonder Woman. This jumper from Soft Kitty Clothing is £30 and available in S to XXL.
If you love cuddling up every year to watch the Doctor Who Christmas special you can’t miss the chance to do it in this weeping angels jumper. Just remember, keep your eyes firmly on that angel at the top of your tree this year and don’t blink! This jumper is $49.99 (around £33) from ThinkGeek, available in sizes S to 3X. ThinkGeek are a US-based company but they ship to the UK and offer an international economy shipping option for smaller lighter items.
If you haven’t got Fallout already, it’s probably one of the games on your Christmas list, so why not play it wearing a festive Vault Tec jumper? Although we have a feeling there have been very few merry Vault Tec Christmases. This jumper is available from Game UK for £29.99 with free delivery in sizes XS to 3X.
Because it wouldn’t be a list from me without something Pokemon related somewhere, this wonderful Pikachu jumper is probably what I’ll be wearing this year. Come to think of it, we really hope someone somewhere is making pokeball Christmas ornaments somewhere. That’s an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. This jumper is £31.99 from Merchoid with free delivery, available in sizes S to XXL.
Once upon a Christmas the first Playstation console was probably your most sought after present. Now this classic can be celebrated through a not very festive, but very Playstation, grey jumper. This is available through Game UK for £29.99 with free delivery and comes in sizes XS to 3X.
We hope you can walk into any Christmas party now with your geek cred intact.
