Thought about getting yourself a novelty holiday sweater? An unlikely contender has thrown its name into the humorous knitwear ring, with Microsoft now selling retro-themed clothing (opens in new tab) to support the charity Girls Who Code (opens in new tab).
The Christmas holiday season is in full swing, and despite everything awful from this year, you can see glimpses of normality shining through. Starbucks is selling its seasonal drinks, someone in your neighborhood has enough lights on their home to land a plane on the street, and you can proudly make a fool of yourself by donning the kitschiest sweater you can find.
An announcement made on December 3 that due to the initial stock selling out so quickly, a full reprint and restock is in progress. You can register your interest at the Xbox gear website (opens in new tab).

The new #WindowsUglySweater has arrived — and this year it’s supporting a fantastic cause! Get yours today (they disappear fast!) and you’ll be supporting @GirlsWhoCode when you do. Good deal, isn’t knit? 🧶December 1, 2020
Microsoft has actually produced the novelty knitwear previously, and was last seen giving away these sweaters to influencers back in 2018. This appears to be the first time that you can buy stock yourself, though, and both existing designs are listed alongside a new MS Paint version for 2020.
You'll need to act fast if you want to impress your in-laws with one though, as stock is extremely limited. All three are listed on sale for $60, with $20 from each sale going to support Girls Who Code (opens in new tab), a charity committed to narrowing the gender gap in computing.
