Christmas is a magical time of the year: presents, lights, mistletoe. Everything shouts “party” and desire for warmth. Yet, when it comes to Christmas-themed clothing, choosing is really tough. Stockings, sweaters and hats are the only items we can find in the Christmas version. And they don’t have many variations either: bows, reindeer and Christmas trees are usually represented in various shades of green, white and red. There isn’t much choice!
So, what to do if you want to fully experience the Christmas spirit, without giving up on a little personal style? There’s Shinesty, that have been creating a collection of colorful Christmas suits for years. But what are “Christmas suits”? These are trousers, jacket and tie with patterns that remind to the Christmas theme. Patterns with candy canes, red with holly, black and blue with snowflakes, gold, textured sweaters or gingerbread men. Everything to make this party even more fun!
Christmas suits: red and green tartan
For example, the type of suit you see in this post is Lincoln Log Love Daddy: the name derives from a construction game for children composed mainly of reproductions of carved miniature logs that can be used in the construction of huts and other buildings.
The pattern is the classic red and green tartan. But how did it come so “Christmas”? This type of pattern, typical of flannel, was once used by woodcutters when they went out hunting in cold places. And therefore, today has become symbolic of Christmas.
The suit is also available for plus sizes: the jacket’s size start from 36″ and go up to 60″, while the trousers’ size starts from 30″ up to 50″
