After months of subtly promoting the line by incorporating it into his streetwear and even posting to his Instagram about it, Bieber has made his official debut as a designer. Unfortunately, it seems like even his biggest fans have quickly gone from excited to disappointed by the launch.
According to Twitter, what people thought was going to be an “affordable range of high quality staples” is in reality just 13 basics with an unreasonable price tag.

Some have even compared the “simple and overpriced” items to Kanye’s Yeezy collections, Hanes T-shirts and even bathroom towels — leaving many with the conclusion that Bieber should probably stick to making music rather than calling himself a designer.
The Purpose Tour merch looked WAY better than this House of Drew line, it basically looks like the hippie version of Kanye’s Yeezy line just without the holes and made of corduroy, then he has the nerve to charge over $100 for it like no sir 💀

About Justin Bieber’s “House of Drew” are we still calling people who choose images to place on hoodies/Hanes T-shirts fashion designers?

Of course, there are still some with Bieber fever who admitted that they’re ready to go broke for his clothing. One even explained that the high costs are a result of the pieces being ethically made.
So I do get the complaints, but I feel like you guys should understand WHY it's still a high price even though they say it's affordable. And they're limited, but high quality. It says in the description. pic.twitter.com/YbvLsIhbHM

I was over here thinking that Drew House was about to be $200-600 but it ended up being cheaper. We ain't completely gonna go broke guys. Your girl's gonna cop a couple things. Justin is so lucky that i love his ass enough to drop coins on him. pic.twitter.com/g6wfTNIjhx
