Rompers for Men Are Happening and the Internet Is As Confused As Us
Why should women have all of the fun wearing rompers this summer? One Kickstarter launched by start-up Aced Designs is taking the matter into their own hands. Enter The RompHim, a romper designed for men, that’s apparently “pretty damn comfortable” and “just might be the start of a fashion revolution,” according to the official description.
The RompHim combines a tailored collarless shirt with structured shorts and an adjustable waist. It comes in pink chambray, blue chambray, and splatter-print cotton, or a special edition Fourth of July. It retails for $119 but if you pledge $95, you can be the first to get your hands on one for the discounted price.
The campaign has already raised more than $50,000, surpassing its goal of $10,000. As you can imagine, the internet has plenty to say:
If they make them rompers out of sweatpants material they might have a buyer here

Because the RompHim comes complete with a zipper, the dudes who wear this will never know the agony of having to pee but needing to strip down to do so.
What do you make of all of this? Tweet us @BritandCo.
