Picture this: A sunny beach swarming with hunnies, a few cases of crispy Bud Lites and a flock of your closest bros all chilling in their pastel rompers.
Excuse me: That’s “RompHims,” as in rompers for him.
This vision of frat nirvana could become a reality if a new Kickstarter campaign is to be believed. Aced Designs, a self-described group of business school friends based in suburban Chicago wants to make the full-body garment a summertime staple among men.
The pieces look like rompers that women wear, but with key design differences, such as a zipper fly and adjustable waist tabs “to “help you get the most flattering contours possible.”
“We realize that wearing a romper will be a new experience for many of our customers,” the Kickstarter’s Q&A section states, noting one of the product’s biggest challenges: “There may be some people who don’t like the way the RompHim looks on them, even if it’s designed exactly to spec (this is a pretty unique product, after all).”
According to the page, the idea sprang from a group of drinking buddies who wanted a menswear option that wasn’t “too corporate,” “fratty,” “runway” or “basic.” Thus, a romper for men.
And they may already have a loyal fanbase. The campaign’s goal is to raise $10,000; it had raised $84,092 as of publication time.
And the Twitter jokes show no signs of stopping.
