The Bro Romper Exists and I Don’t Want to Live on This Planet Anymore

Esquire – by Christine Flammia

There’s a lot to thank the bros for in terms of modern menswear. They’ve brought us boat shoes and fleece vests. They’ve embraced body confidence in 5.25-inseam shorts. They’ve even made us rethink what it means to wear a classic gingham shirt. But today, in what might possibly be the bro-iest style move in all of bro style, a new brand launched on Kickstarter that might change the face of menswear: the RompHim.

No, it’s not a romper. It’s a romphim. Well, actually, it is a romper but it’s made for dudes. Let’s be clear here: We happily invite all people to wear whatever it is that makes them feel like themselves, gender labels be damned. 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. Do you have any idea how hard it is to pee in those things? (OK, fine. This one has a zipper fly. But this is still very dangerous territory.)  

From what we can gather from its page on Kickstarter, it’s positioned to be the next big thing in frat and post-frat culture. The bros are shot in their natural habitats—drinking beers, going to Coachella, etc.—and in colors close to their hearts. Think pastels, youthful prints, and at least one “America!” riff on the style.

Take a look for yourself:

      1. WAY more than I care too brother. I’m especially happy when I see the number of older men (my age (58) and older) running around sporting little man buns. I told one the other day, at the local Home Despot, that if you can’t grow your hair long enough for a real pony-tail then, at least have the decency to not humiliate yourself (and MEN in general) with a man bun.

        1. I see them all the time at the HD where I work. And those billy goat beards. Disgusting turnoffs. One of the guys who works in Bldg Materials wears one. I sometimes call him Audrey Hepburn to the other guys.

  1. I live in Man Diego. These are the ‘dream guys’ that all the women gush over.

    Especially the cougars

    1. Koorz, for real? lol!
      Maybe in Man Diego, but can’t see any woman, especially a cougar (have known some…work) going for that? Well unless they just want to laugh about them behind their back?
      Not into the flood pant thingy for women either. Know fashion, both of these mentioned aren’t! even….mho….smh
