Christmas jumpers are, by definition, naff.

The more garish, the better.

Remember Mark Darcy from Bridget Jones? A champion of the Ugly Jumper brigade.

Any man who goes out in public wearing a novelty animal-themed Christmas jumper is a man to stick with.

So just take a look at these hunks and hunkesses at the first ever Ugly Sweater World Championships.

Taking place in Albi, France, the very worst/best of fashion design was celebrated, from double person jumpers to ones with stuffed reindeers coming out either end.

The perfect inspiration for Christmas Jumper Day on 15 December.

After all, no one in your office wants to see you in marginally acceptable Topshop number.
