Ugly Christmas Sweater T-Shirts Are Apparently A Thing Now

Posted By on Fri, Nov 25, 2011 at 8:00 AM

Check out these incredibly fashionable "ugly sweater" t-shirts! They cost $20 which is only what some idiot in San Francisco would spend on an ironic t-shirt. This is the reason Missouri hates us.

Makers Vardagen advertise, "All the flair of an ugly christmas sweater on a soft, ringspun cotton t-shirt that can be worn year 'round!" because when you're summering in the Hamptons, what you need is a t-shirt with a fake Christmas sweater on it.

Listen, the only thing cool about christmas sweaters is that they're uncool. The more applique and puffy paint, the better. Making Threadless-lite t-shirt versions is the exact opposite of everything that's awesome about them. This is like when Hollywood remakes Korean horror flicks, it just desecrates the pure amazingness of the original. Do not disrespect a million awesome grandmothers with this garbage. Just knock it off.

However, the photos. The photos, they are the best thing on the internet.

Also, I love the models in a wind tunnel thing. Tyra is somewhere, crying with pride.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
