The 'romper for men' is here - and it's quite something



The RompHim also comes in an American flag print, which will likely become this 4th of July's official beer pong uniform. According to Business Insider, if you search for men's rompers or jumpsuits, you can already find examples out there on sites like Zappos and ASOS.

The RompHim has been dominated pop culture over the last few days, and for good reason: it is a romper specifically designed for men. But we can't see any rock musicians sporting rompers, except maybe the guys in Pablo Cruise.

The quartet of geniuses' company, ACED Design, is calling the thing a RompHim, a rather tortured and not altogether correct rendering of "romper" into a masculine form.

Though there have been high-fashion attempts, rompers - the glorious melding of a shirt and shorts - have yet to take off as a casual option for men.

At Elle, they're taking up arms, declaring they Cannot Stand Idly By and Let the RompHim Happen.

Merkel's CDU wins key German state election
The CDU received 33 percent of the votes, 6.7 percentage points more than in the previous election in 2012. According to Spiegel Online magazine, the victory in North Rhine-Westphalia is a great success for Merkel.

"Everything was either too corporate, too fratty, too "runway", or too basic", the site says.

ACED has also amassed 694 backers due to this exposure, and they now offer various packages where you can pledge money and join the Team RompHim campaign. "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".

No one will be surprised to learn that the fellows behind the male-oriented romper are millennials.

While Esquire, the men's fashion magazine, has sounded the alarm - the one that warns any man in his right mind to completely avoid this trend - that hasn't stopped hundreds of guys from making hefty investments in this new attire.

The creators at ACED Design said they wanted something stylish for guys that doesn't sacrifice comfort, fit or versatility. You drink rose and wine coolers that mask themselves as "hard grape juice" and "hard sparkling water", while you complain about how ramps aren't in season at the Whole Foods year round even if you could reliably get kale just a year ago. We could all get together in the ultimate Romper Room.
