Someone made a Kickstarter for stylish male rompers, and its getting a ton of conflicting reactions.
If youre looking for mercy in this particular fashion department, step away from yourkeyboard because youre not going to get it from the internet.
TheRompHim Kickstarter(yes, its exactly what you think it is) is raising money for rompers for men, and the internet is torn.
Is it a romper speciallydesigned for men? Sure, but its also so much more, the campaign reads.
Featuring a bro squad participating in guys favorite past times concerts, beach days, bar patio visits the garment made and manufactured in Chicago guarantees to leave fellas snappingnecks and cashing checks.
Im not going to lie to you, Id love to get my hands on a mint one.
While, yes, theres humor in the brands presentation of its collection, the internet was quick to fire back with its own version of humor.
A lot people are roasting the upcoming fashion trend.
You have to admit, theres definitely a double standard that exists here. Why cant men wear rompers, too?
Im no stranger to the mens department, and I love perusing graphic tees and sweaters meant for fellas. I wear my grandfathers Lacoste cardigans and Elgin watch, and though it might be more of a sentimental reason than a style reason, Im definitely wearing clothes intended for women.
Im never judged for my oversized yellow sweater hand-me-down. In fact, Im complimented. Ive alsohad strangers approach meabout my mens watch (no joke).
So why do guys face the backlash when they choose to wear something made popular by women?
H&M spokeswoman Marybeth Schmitt commented on the brands unisex line, saying,
Fashion is constantly evolving and intersecting, and today we see there are no boundaries in democratic style.
Fashion should always be inclusive.
So if a well-known brand is promoting inclusivity, its interesting to see that a smaller project is met with a bit of backlash.
However, some people are welcoming the trend with open arms.
Lets face it: RompHim is getting the last laugh. The brands online campaign exceeded its goal of $10,000 and raised over $48,000 as of May 16.
Were revolutionizing mens fashion, and that doesnt stop at aesthetics, the Kickstarter reads.
Slay, RompHim, slay!
