The days are getting warmer and the nights are getting shorter, which means summertime is almost here. For many women, this means a season of rompers, a one-piece outfit that doesn’t require trying to match a top to bottoms. Summertime means no stress and in the case of rompers, no decisions to make.
By why should women have all the one-piece, sometimes wedgie-inducing fun? A group of business school friends in Chicago decided there was a hole in the market that they were going to fill. Enter, the RompHim – a romper for men.
The group has now started a Kickstarter campaign, raising over $60,000, well above their initial $10,00 goal. According to the Kickstarter page, the idea came about over a few beers. “We were sitting around drinking beers one evening and got to thinking about 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 sacrificing comfort, fit and versatility?”
Designed, created and manufactured in Chicago, the RompHim is now, according to the Kickstarter page, the perfect outfit that can take a man from concerts to the beach to the bar and beyond.
The RompHim, which is currently available in three styles with a special Fourth of July design on the way, features an adjustable waist, deep front pockets, a front shirt pocket and zippered back pocket.
Not surprisingly, social media isn’t letting this burgeoning trend go untweeted.

Why did they call the rompers “RompHIM” and not “LederBROsen” come on

We’re pretty sure this trend will die as soon as men discover how difficult it is to use the bathroom while wearing a romper. Wait, it has a zipper fly? Nevermind. It truly is a man’s world. Prepare for the invasion of the RompHim.
