All my Christmas shopping is done. It was easy. Don’t look at me like that.
All apart from Mr Candy’s. I have been looking for places to buy some nice, good quality, not-too-bright jumpers for him. (Profile: he’s a simple dresser – he prefers Muji or GAP clothes, and is very protective over his socks and underpants, even the ones with holes in them).
The GAP UK site is a pile of pants, so I decided to look at Top Man. What I found on there damaged my eyes forever.
So I was specifically looking for jumpers & knitted wear (I love men in Cardigans but it would be a bridge to far for the Mr). This was what I found….
1. The Administrative Assistant Look
Yes the pussy bow tie is cute….on a WOMAN. Who works as a secretary. Is this supposed to be the metrosexuals way of wearing a tie?
2. The 14 Year old Emo Girl Look
We’ll ignore the hideous neckline and instead look at the general hideosity of this jumper. A grown man is supposed to wear this? Even Russell Brand couldn’t pull this one off.
This is one of those jumpers that started life as your Nan’s tea cosy but she decided to extend it and make it into a top for you instead.
3. The ‘I had to borrow this from my sister the rest of my clothes was in the wash’ look.
I like this cardigan! For me that is.
Deep V neck = Good for big boobs.
But on your boyfriend….I am sure some could carry it off *snigger*
4. Belted + Yellow = Why?
Erm. Its a bit bright. Its belted. I can’t help but think this will appeal to about 0.01% of men, the majority greasy haired fashion students.
Yes, ok, fashion is an individual thing and if you rock these clothes, good for you.
I just haven’t shopped for the Mr for a long time and was not ready for these somewhat garish, unwearable pieces, and they aren’t even cheap!
What’s your opinion? Would you be happy if your date turned up in a knitted umbrella pattered jumper?
