(CNN)Male romper. RompHim. Bro romper (bromper?). Public onesie. Jumpsuit, variety: short. 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 mainstream.
Blame it on RompHim
The sartorial whisper became a scream this week when a project called “RompHim” launched on Kickstarter. RompHim is, quite obviously, a man-sized romper offered in several pastel colors and prints.
There’s a lot to unpack here.
The campaign presents the RompHim as a mildly obnoxious, devil-may-care garment for young men with an abundance of money and/or self confidence, who never skip leg day and spend the summer weekends at their bro’s house on the Cape. Which is not to judge! That is definitely an aesthetic.
