SLAYER 'Ugly Christmas Sweater' Tradition Continues

December 17, 2014

Locoape, a division of Toynk Toys LLC, has entered into another agreement with Global Merchandising Services who represent the worldwide merchandising rights for SLAYER. Locoape will again be producing the now iconic and annual SLAYER holiday sweater. Yes, the limited-edition ugly metal sweater that started it all is back!

Following up on the massive success of 2012 and 2013's SLAYER Christmas sweater, Locoape will again fulfill fans request for more SLAYER sweaters.

As the iconic SLAYER sweater has pre-sold out in each of the last few years, Locoape's retail arm — which is offering the item exclusively — has a very limited number of the SLAYER sweater in stock and available for immediate shipment!

The unique sweater features the iconic imagery made famous by SLAYER, with that addition of the ugly holiday sweater vibe.

The sweaters are made of a soft, super heavy poly-blend and run from size S to size XXXL.

Limited quantities are available exclusively at

"Ugly Christmas sweater" or "tacky Christmas sweater" parties have been a holiday staple for several years, but there have been very few places to actually buy these sweaters. That has since changed, according to Time magazine, which reports that vintage stores, the Salvation Army, and Goodwill are reaping the benefits of this craze, as are fast-fashion shops like H&M and high-end retailers such as Nordstrom.

The market for ugly Christmas sweaters is so large that several stores even exist solely for the purpose of selling the the festive apparel.

Locoape is a trademarked brand of Toynk LLC. The Locoape brand serves as a licensee/manufacturer focused on producing fun and unique products covering the world of popular culture, toys, apparel and collectibles with an emphasis on the music industry.
