Forget the Ugly Christmas Sweater, that's old news.

Oh sure, you can still find dozens of those dorky knitted items in nearly every store ranging from Macy's to Farm/Fleet.

But the latest trend in truley hideous holiday fashion is none other than the three-piece Christmas Suit.

Nothing sings (or more appropriately, screams) Ho-HO-HO! like the gawd-awful designs that folks are shelling out big bucks for this holiday season. Even classy stores like Von Maur are stocking the aisles with these tacky-tacky suits. Yes, it's all about money, folks.

The outfits come with sport jacket, matching slacks and (just for good measure) the holiday necktie.

It has not yet been confirmed if the necktie is made from a fabric strong enough to hang yourself with, because presumably you wouldn't want to be caught dead wearing this outrageous outfit.

But I know a few people who would be brave (or stupid) enough to try one on for size.

That would be me.

Come to think of it, I do have an office Christmas party to attend next week...
