Obnoxious Christmas Sweater Help!

So for the last few holiday seasons, the younger folk at our holiday parties finds it fun to have somewhat obnoxious holiday attire. Last year I busted out the red tartan pants and matching red vest.

This year I am looking to find a chirstmas sweater to go with the outfit. Something with a nordic pattern, maybe some large snow flakes, probably red in color...also probably some sort of thick wool weave. Not looking for some cheap sweatshirt with a picture of a reindeer glued on, but since this is somewhat of a joke purchase I would like to keep it < $200.

Any ideas where to look?

I have tried Brooks Brothers, Nordstrom, Jo Bank, Gap, Banana Republic and Eddie Bauer but haven't found anything worthwhile.

thanks in advance

Keep an eye on ebay or sierra trading post. The later has several nordic/snowflake patterned sweaters right now.

I have no suggestions, but I am envious of your ability to spend up to $200 on an ironic sweater that you will wear 1x.

while I wont wear it often, it will hopefully make appearances for a number of holiday seasons going forwards.

There is a deep discounter here that sells obnoxious &quot;christmas sweaters&quot; for less than $10.

Don't forget the RLpurple label reindeerskin blazer. It is an essential tool in making little children cry when you tell them what happened to Rudolph.

The Filene's Basement here had some RL Polo snowflake sweaters. Not red, though.

They can't afford to be that obnoxious for less than 10 bucks..
