Here’s your first reason to ask why Christmas doesn’t just hurry the hell up: the NBA Ugly Sweaters, primed to feature heavily in any right-thinking man’s sartorial winter armoury.
From Boston Celtics’ iconic green to the LA Lakers’ purple and yellow, there’s more varieties of colour in this collection than the hair of Dennis Rodman during his playing career.
And don’t fret if you don’t get that reference: the kitsch, clever designs weaved throughout these jumpers should be enough to give even those who’ve never watched the game hoop dreams.
Who knows, it might even win you the work Christmas party best festive knitwear.
