    The Bro Romper Exists and I Don't Want to Live on This Planet Anymore

    There's a lot to thank the bros for in terms of modern menswear. They've brought us boat shoes and fleece vests. They've embraced body confidence in 5.25-inseam shorts. They've even made us rethink what it means to wear a classic gingham shirt. But today, in what might possibly be the bro-iest style move in all of bro style, a new brand launched on Kickstarter that might change the face of menswear: the RompHim.


    No, it's not a romper. It's a romphim. Well, actually, it is a romper but it's made for dudes. Let's be clear here: We happily invite all people to wear whatever it is that makes them feel like themselves, gender labels be damned. But as a woman who is decidedly anti-romper of any sort, I'm not sure this is a train I'd recommend anybody hopping aboard. Do you have any idea how hard it is to pee in those things? (OK, fine. This one has a zipper fly. But this is still very dangerous territory.)

    From what we can gather from its page on Kickstarter, it's positioned to be the next big thing in frat and post-frat culture. The bros are shot in their natural habitats—drinking beers, going to Coachella, etc.—and in colors close to their hearts. Think pastels, youthful prints, and at least one "America!" riff on the style.

    I hate people. This better not take off because the first person I see in a romphim I will audibly boo them to their face.

    I saw this BS on FB yesterday. Unfortunately, I see this f#$kery quickly joining the ranks of the "Tittie Shirt" and the other trending "Gender Neutral/ Gender Inclusive/IDGAF About Gender" clothing in all their varying manifestations.

    This looks nice on preppy white boys, they can pull it off I say.

    I wouldn't mind seeing this on a masculine black man with phat booty and dreads, and since the shorts are so short... a peen slip to top it off.

    I think it was something started for fun and not to be taken so serious. Sort of a joke fashion piece. It looks like they got well over the funding through their kickstarter and word of mouth is trending.

    Shit I wish i was apart of the team that started this. Im pretty positive its a trendy gimmick with no long term future, but for quick funding I bet they are WINNING. Simple design, probably cost less than $5 bucks to make and its gonna sell like CRAZY!!! Even if men and women buy it just for a gag.

    Since there's outrage about this here's the masculine alternative to the Romper

    upload_2017-5-20_3-38-14.jpeg

    it's called the Jailsuit, very popular in the Urban community I heard.
