Los Angeles, Feb 17 (IANS) Singer-designer Jessica Simpson was planning to create a menswear line, but she has reportedly scrapped the plans following dissatisfactory work from her team.

The idea of a men's line was nixed as soon as the presentation meeting finished, according to a source, reports

America's Star magazine claimed Simpson, who is pregnant with her second child, had been in talks to create a line of apparel for men, with her fiance, former American footballer Eric Johnson, in charge of the designs.

However, Simpson was not impressed by the T-shirt, jeans and khakis range her creative team came up with. So she allegedly chose to scrap the idea completely.

Simpson found her self-titled brand in 2006, with products including women's clothing, handbags, shoes, fragrances and accessories. She has since turned it into a $1 billion business.
