Male Rompers – New Trend Alert?

Attention gentlemen, big news in the style department. Rompers are … back. However they have gained a few different names like Bro romper (bromper?), Public onesie, Jumpsuit Or, perhaps, just a romper that happens to be worn by a man.

Whatever you call it, the one-piece clothing item preferred by babies and women at outdoor concerts has officially hit the male fashion market/mainstream. Not only are these pieces stylish, they are also wildly functional.
  • front shirt pocket
  • adjustable waistband
  • zipper fly
  • zippered back pocket
  • deep front pockets
In two days, the Kickstarter ‘RompHim’ has raised more than $136,000, which is 13 times the $10,000 goal they were shooting for. RompHim is a man-sized romper offered in several pastel colours and prints sold for a price of around $120 (seems a bit much right?).

On social media, you may have noticed an influx of romper-related jokes and assumed the stream of alarming political news had driven people into some sort of mental state. Maybe this is true, BUT it was also people discovering that a) male rompers existed, and b) they are cool now. Thoughts on RompHim? Should this trend be acknowledged, or make it stop?
