For cheap and ugly (and synthetic textiles, so probably won't last too long) try some of the ethnic shops selling clothing in the Bahnhofsviertel (Münchener Strasse, Kaiserstrasse and the cross streets in between).

 

And no, I don't mean those shops where there are obviously not enough clothes to go around, so some people are very scantily dressed... ;)

 

Can't guarantee they will have Christmas motifs on them though. Is this a Christmas custom I don't know about?

Gaaah! My eyes! :blink:

 

Not sure what the 21st century has to do with this, but you're right, we are 12 years into the 21st by now. And man, those are some hideous sweaters. I fear German sweaters will not be able to hold a candle to the true ugliness available online.

Okay, now I know what the 21st century has brought forth. I shudder to think this is just the beginning - but we do have 88 more years to go, who knows what else can happen. According to the WashPo:

 

 

Finally, Howard has good news for devotees of the ugly sweater party. He says from his perspective the tradition, "has been growing exponentially," since he first wrote a story about it for a lifestyle site, The Daily Green, in 2008. And Blackman’s traffic is up nearly four times over last year’s, Howard says.

 

The Christmas sweater trend, it seems, is here to stay—as eloquently forecasted in this 2001 essay by Style writer Hank Stuever.

Their pullovers are reduced both online and in their bricks-and-mortar stores.

 

It can be bought at your local C&A, map of their stores.

You say ugly, I say "check out the matching sweaters we're wearing on our christmas card!!".

 

Saw lots in Primark (in Nordwestzentrum) about a month ago. Very cheap and very ugly. And lots of options. My GerMan picked up a hideous one that looks like the top half of a santa costume complete with beard (although it only starts from the collar!!! so gross!!)
