Sensual Eastern European beauty Alicja wears an aggressively festive Christmas jumper in this shocking horse-and-reveal. Who would have thought that behind such a hideous equestrian mask would be a face that could unknit a million jumpers with a single look? Not us. Wherever Alicja is going on this train ride to surrealism, we hope she continues to look as Christmassy as she does. Well done.
We’re not sure where the knits begin and end in this bundle of familial woolen warmth. Does this trio have three separate jumpers on or are they all slotted into one giant multi-limbed knit? Who knows. And we’re not sure why the baby on the left is so surprised. Perhaps it’s his first “thumbs up” moment? Or maybe he’d never seen flash photography before? Or maybe it was the realisation he was going to be immortalised on a blog about fashionable festive knitwear. That’s probably it.
Our correspondent for Russian jumpers spotted this contemporary knit in the Tsvetnoy shopping centre in Moscow. See? Russians don’t just beat up gays. They also look great while doing it! And in case you were wondering, Scandi Knits in Russian is скандинавские свитеры. You weren’t? OK neither were we.
Gosh! Aren’t festive jumpers just the best? Marek is showcasing this bright orange stonker with a whisky in his hand, leaning suavely into the shot like he’s Ryan Gosling dressed up for his grandmother’s Christmas party. We especially like the wrist and waist detailing. The collars really do match the cuffs.
Hold that festive phone – garden/homeware conglomerate B&Q is selling Christmas jumpers… as CHRISTMAS TREE DECORATIONS! Could ANYTHING in this world be sweeter?! This has made those grey clouds outside appear that little bit brighter; it’s made our Tesco sandwich taste that little bit better; it’s made the depressing crush of our tedious lives that little bit lighter. Thanks B&Q, you might just have saved Christmas.
In the third and final installment of our Men Holding Things series, recently engaged Sean has a cosmo in his hand, ready to toast the future. We’re looking forward to the wedding Sean, now here’s some marital advice: continue to wear awesome jumpers, nothing says ‘sorry’ like chicken kiev and chips, don’t drink pink cosmos if you want to appear sexy and rugged in front of your wife.
In the second of our Men Holding Things series, Ben looks to the camera dreamily, as if to say: “…fancy a cuppa?” Based on his monochrome beauty of a knitted jumper, we’d love to sit down and sip on a brew with him. Maybe he could tell us things like where he got it from, or how it feels on his skin, or whether drinking that tea is making him feel hot in it. Maybe he’d think we were a little weird.
Rob, a previous Scandi Knits Torso of the Week, kicks off our Men Holding Things series in this seriously seductive showcase of two things we absolutely love: knits and donuts. We love them so much, in fact, that we think a hybrid could be in order a la the cronut. World, we introduce: the knitnut? The doknit? Dunkin’ Knits?
