The Shophound was not thrilled with Ruffian's affordable new line of Macy's menswear: "Unfortunately, even though [designers] Wolk and Morais initially started their business with menswear, as a small luxury women's brand, the Ruffian label doesn't mean much (or anything, really) in the moderate men's sportswear world, and the product we can see on the floor doesn't make a strong case for their re-entry into men's ... [P]laid shirts have been crammed in the racks on cheap plastic hangers, and it all sort of fades into the rest of their men's offerings which are so firmly entrenched in the middle of the road. It's not aggressively unattractive, like Ed Hardy for example, but it doesn't look to us like anything you wouldn't otherwise expect to find at Macy's. It's just kind of blah." [Shophound]
