There’s a sucker born every minute. This is especially true when it comes to companies touting new fashion trends (cough, cough… Nordstrom’s see-through Mom jeans). This week’s cringe-worthy fashion trend? The male romper, aka the RompHim. The Chicago-based Bros behind it are calling the pastel-rompers a “fashion revolution.”
via the RompHim Kickstarter:
“We were sitting around one evening and got to talking about the men’s clothing options out there. Everything was either too corporate…too fratty…too “runway”…or too basic. Something was missing. Why wasn’t there anything out there that allowed guys to be more stylish and fun without also sacrificing comfort, fit, and versatility? The more we thought about it, the more we realized that a romper hits all of these attributes – they can be dressed up or down and they’re unique, fashionable, and cool. But the one thing a romper didn’t have? A version for men. So we set out to fix that.”
Colors include blue chambray, red chambray, splatter print cotton, and a Fourth of July one — all available on Kickstarter with a promise to ship before the biggest Bro party day of the year, the 4th of July:
Not sure the world is ready for this.
Meanwhile, the Internet can’t stop making fun of the clothing item:
