The Romper’s Creepy Uncle Has Arrived.

I tend to be a late adopter of new fashion trends. I like to justify that this is with good reason – as trends take hold, they get tweaked and redesigned, and if said trend withstands the test of time, the end result is much more flattering than where it started. Skinny Jeans are a perfect example of this. When they came out, their shape turned everyone into an upside-down triangle drawn by a three-year-old (three-year-olds draw their upside-down-triangles with wiggles and lumps everywhere.) But as their roots in fashion took hold, the fabrics, colors, and cuts became much more of a delight to the typical woman’s body.

I haven’t gotten here with rompers yet, but I will admit that I’m close. I have finally started seeing rompers that give shape and don’t just look like a kindergartener’s favorite outfit and/or a 1985 floral bedsheet with a fitted corner at the waist. Rompers used to make everyone look five sizes too big, but now they’re starting to nearly show kindness to the female form.

That was, until rompers went to a frat party, got totally high, and had THE BEST IDEA EVER, DUDE.

I hereby introduce, the RompHim.

Just launched as a Kickstarter two days ago, the RompHim is, you guessed it, a romper for the fashion forward man.

RompHim PictureSomebody please tell Models #2 and #5 that 100% cotton rips scary easy.

That’s right, ladies: for the tiny price of $95, your husband can look like he just woke up, bleary-eyed, to see Peter Pan at his window.

RompHim Peter PanJohn and Michael Darling! Come down from that windowsill at once!!

Except that it’s not for off-broadway reproductions of British classics. It’s for hip Millennials drinking craft beer and wearing multiple all-access bracelets (or psych ward ID bracelets – can’t read the writing from here.)

So let’s discuss the details. What is a RompHim, really? And more importantly, WHY??

FLATTERING CONTOURS, Y’ALL. As flattering as crochet shorts.

The RompHim is ideal for framing your assets while playing pool, bunching open awkwardly while hanging out at the fence with a neighbor, looking AHH-MAZING in your next street mural selfie, and most definitely for being a nice, thick, barrier from awkwardness the next time you find yourself sitting on the shoulders of another man.

So if these are situations you find yourself in daily, then by all means buy yourself a RompHim. Or three.

But wait!! For just a measly $190, you can have the limited edition, perfectly wrinkled Southern Staple RompHim and show your patriotism while you romp.

So, my girls: next time you know your guy is headed to a football game, or a hunting trip, or a multi-day hiking trip, make sure he’s properly outfitted in a RompHim. And maybe with that fiiiiiiine fur jacket on the Mister Model #6.

And no worries that the RompHim won’t get produced en masse – it tripled its 30 day fundraising goal in less than 2 days.

So gird your loins and prepare your hearts: you just might be exposed to an in-real-life RompHim this summer.

  1. No.

  2. I see lots of white elephant gifts in the future.

    Wait. Is this like the snuggie? Will it feature NCAA prints in time for tailgating??

    Oh I know what my hubby is getting in his stocking this year…

  4. Wow…just wow.

  5. Oh my word. I just can’t even form coherent thoughts because seeing this has destroyed brain cells.

  6. Terra M says:

    No words.

  7. I can’t wait for the family beach photos to roll in. Moms have been matching their kids for years, so why can’t dads get into the fun? Lilly Pulitzer and Matilda Jane should be all over this!

    I suspect these guys don’t hunt… But #6 in that last picture is wearing fur… The combination is mind boggling.

    • Kelly Lacey says:

      LOL… I figure #6 is modelling how this fantastic piece of clothing can be worn by the men here in Canada. We do have days where we go from turning on the heat, then the air conditioning and then back to the heat… best to be prepared. :o)

  9. And this is why I love your blog — I desperately need to be up on my new fashion trends. hahahaha
