It's easy to lose a lot of time to ASOS shopping. There's page after page of clothes to browse, some of which you want, but most of which make you wonder just who on God's green Earth would step out their door wearing them. Like this men's crop top, for example.
Now, this originally appeared last summer - however, it appears Twitter has finally borne witness to the unorthodox fashion item, as well as the also-a-bit-odd men's 'boob tube'. In typically scathing form, users are pouring forth their finest one-liners and put-downs.
"Moob tubes," summarised one wag, succinctly, while another Twitter user offered a revolutionary suggestion: "They should combine those two and stitch them together for a new revolutionary item of clothing called: a shirt!!"
A third person wrote: "I'll have long sleeves on my crop top, don't wanna look stupid," while others described it as 'a cry for help' or simply said: "If my husband ever wore this he better not come home." Well, he can't say he wasn't warned.
And then of course there was a more rational answer: "Well I personally think that the belt is ok. Dunno what the fuss is about." Wait... you don't think this person is trolling here, do you? Surely not...
Now, there's very obviously nothing wrong with a boob tube, but on the pictures shared by ASOS, this one just looks like a really big snood that has dropped down a little.
Ditto, there's nothing wrong with a crop top - though the long-sleeved aspect does seem to defeat the point: in what sort of weather is it necessary to have long sleeves, but not a shirt front?
It's one from the Sergio Agüero collection for people who wear short sleeves and gloves at the same time.
One possible use for it could be if you have amazing abs - so good that you need to show them off at all times, regardless of what that does to the rest of your outfit.
Of course, ASOS itself had the last laugh, summarising the many things people have said with the casually defiant reply: "Proudly breaking down fashion norms since 2000."

In any case, the top only costs 15 quid, so it's hardly a price gouge on those with a physique capable of pulling off these outfits. Wear what you want, I say.
