A male commenter in New York City: "This was an absolute waste of time for me. I got in line at 6am, and walked away with just a scarf. The wrist band system is a total disaster for men. When the store open everyone rushing to this tiny section of menswear, including women and lots of resellers and picked everything clean. I will never go to one of these again unless they start doing wristbands for men too. The resellers are so bad this time that they are actually offering to resell stuff to you INSIDE H&M... and the quality and fit of the menswear is horrendous compared to the CDG and Lanvin collaborations."
