Occasionally, fashion is meant to divide option and be provocative, but ASOS has really taken the biscuit with its latest drop: A crop top for men.

The online mega retailer has started selling reclaimed yintage-inspired cropped vest AKA a tiny white crop top that barely covers the male model’s nipples.

It comes as no surprise that the item has caused some commotion on social media, with opinions ranging from horror to awe.

One Twitter user wrote that the “world has gone mad” and that anyone who purchased the top is a “right creature”. Erm, bit strong.

Another said the item made them “violently sick” – seriously, what’s with the drama queens around here? – while another said they “don’t know any guy that will be making a purchase” of the garment.

However, there were some who applauded the subversive item, with some user saying “I’m so here for men w/o [without] toxic masculinity.”

Some were so inspired by the crop top, they even tried-and-tested their own versions.

TBH, we applaud any man who would rock this.

ASOS is rarely out of the news, and whether its down to clever marketing ploys or sheer coincidence, the brand’s doing something right.

Just last month, the retailer began selling clothes designed for fashion lovers with disabilities, and the month before, they won the internet by featured a model’s back rolls. 

In June, the brand made a major anti-cruelty move by announcing plans to ban the sale of all mohair, silk, cashmere and feather products on its platform.
