Maybe builders’ attire is underrated. PrettyLittleThing previously sold a high-vis jacket for £45 but it lowkey screamed fashion.
And now ASOS is following suit with its very own take on construction clothes, offering a builder’s hoodie. Yep, these are hoodies just like the orange ones with grey reflecting lighting we’re used to seeing construction workers or security folks wear.
The fashion retailer is selling its Collusion Everyone Together Unisex hoodie with reflective tape for £30. And you know what? It doesn’t look that bad.
But naturally, the online community doesn’t seem to think it’s all that and have joked that if they were to wear the jumper it would make them feel like they’re about to go and build some houses.
Hey, at least you’ll be visible at night if you’re a cyclist. It’s certainly one way to stand out.
People questioned the price of an outfit inspired by builders which could be bought for a much cheaper price on a construction company website.
It’s certainly not the first time ASOS has come out with a controversial creation; earlier this month it revealed a dress which can only be described as resembling a bin bag.
Honestly, save yourself £26 and rummage through your kitchen drawer.
In the grand scheme of things, ASOS’s orange hoodies are quite toned down.
But if you think the security look is high fashion, you can check out almost identical garments for about £12 on eBay.
Any builders looking to stock up on a durable high-vis jackets might want to check out safety gear website Arco, though it’s a bit more spenny.
If you like the look of it but want it in a more lowkey colour then bad news, it only comes in orange.
But at least it’s unisex so you and bae can both sport matching looks before you go and build houses together.
