Halloween Jumpers, Shirts & Tees for Men 2018
With Halloween just around the corner, it’s inevitable that you’ve been invited to a fancy dress party or at the very least have to go to work in costume. But for many Joes, this strikes unspeakable fear with fancy dress going straight into Room 101. Which is why recently there’s been a serious spike in sales on Halloween-themed jumpers, tees and hoodies.
Now we’re not going to suggest Halloween-themed clothing is ever going to be anything other than functional. But it’s quick, easy and does the job without much fuss. So with that in mind, here’s some of the best Halloween gear for men around in 2018.
Nightmare Before Christmas Sweatshirt
Though it always gets played around yuletide, Henry Selick’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is most definitely a Halloween film. Heck it stars a main character called Jack Skellington AKA. The Pumpkin King! So we say wear your colours this All Hallows’ Eve with this Sweatshirt from Zavvi, which features Skellington, bats and pumpkins in true Xmas jumper style.
Skeleton Print Shirt
If you’re after a shirt this Halloween, this point collared button shirt from ASOS will do the job and won’t break the bank either. The short-sleeve number features an all-over skeleton print and you can even get matching trousers if you really feel you need to complete the look. More sartorial than scary.
Only Came For The Boos Halloween Jumper
Website: New Look
Aren’t puns brilliant? And while slogan jumpers should really be avoided at all costs, this ‘Only Came For The Boos’ sweatshirt from New Look did raise a faint smile at the very least. Against presented in a Christmas-esque jumper style, it features two ghouls cheers-ing and an all over knitted pattern. It should also keep you warm now the temperatures have dropped!
Halloween Glow in the Dark Skeleton Top
If you want to make the least effort possible at a Halloween party while still looking the part, this glow-in-the-dark tee from Asda will do the job. Featuring a dark skeleton design, the long-sleeved t-shirt is made from a breathable cotton fabric for comfort, so you won’t get too warm partying. It’s also cheap as chips as £6.
Fair Isle Classic Horror Monsters Sweater
Website: Halloween Costumes
For something a little more durable, take a look at this horror monsters Halloween sweater. Featuring a colourful, traditional Fair Isle pattern, this knitted jumper is made from 12-gauge yarn and displays images of vampires in caskets, black cats next to pumpkins, cauldron-stirring witches and a row of repeated Frankensteins. At a push, you could wear it all year round.
Halloween Oversized Wilted Rose T-Shirt
Website: Boohoo Man
With a name like BOOhoo, it’s no great shock that the online clothing retailer has a few options this Halloween, especially in the t-shirt department. This oversized Wilted Rose tee, for example, is obviously far more subtle than basically everything else on our list and could be one for those who want to get into the spirit of things without being the centre of attention. It also features the same graphic enlarged at the back.
Pumpkin Face Sweater
But if you want something straight to the point, we like this Pumpkin Face Sweater available on Etsy. Simple and effect, this orange jumper features a black Jack-o’-lantern and will see you right through until November!
If you don’t want to go down the scary route at your Halloween party, here’s some easily achievable Star Wars fancy dress ideas for both Joes and Janes.
