Remember Holiday Sweaters? Here, let us remind you:
Until recently, holiday sweaters were the preserve of those poor unfortunates who were given one as a gift, and forced to wear it, lest they cause offence. Oh, and the Cosby family, obviously.

Or maybe not, because the new generation of holiday sweater is at least a little less garish, and a little more stylish than the ones of old. Witness:

Stella McCartney, $1,145
Markus Lupfer, $475
Aubin & Wills, $375
