Fashion Nova’s highly-anticipated launch of its new menswear line ended up disappointing quite a number of eager fans who had expected much, much more from the brand.
Thousands of people took to Twitter to rant about their dissatisfaction with the brand’s first menswear releases, describing them as “disappointing” and “absolute garbage.” Some even compared the brand to Forever 21, hinting that the clothes and their designs were at a level of subpar they did not at all expect.

Fashion Nova was originally a female-centric brand, with celebrity endorsers such as Kylie Jenner and Cardi B launching it to viral success.
“With the launch of Fashion Nova Men, the brand is expanding its reach even further, offering men the same variety and affordable options in fast fashion that our Nova Babes have enjoyed,” he said in a statement. “The line’s vibe reflects our brand’s ethos — confident, edgy and a bit risk-taking.”
Perhaps we should still give Fashion Nova a chance to prove itself. After all, its women’s line started off in a similar way — maybe the brand will shock us with what it has next in store!
