So it is 2017! And just the other day, some of the guys at WODROB debated on why pink, despite it being an eye-catching colour, would NOT be a hue they’d opt for in the clothing department. While we were discussing this, the one trend that made headlines across fashion magazines was rompers for men. Emmm… yes! We’ve made no mistake, and you read that right. Rompers for men are a thing now fellas, and TBH we think it’s darn cool!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, a romper is a onesie, and is quite popular as a summer outfit for women. Taking (yet another) gender neutral step in fashion, ACED Design launched a KickStarter campaign called “RompHim”, a version of the rompers for men. One that comes in pastel hues and funky prints, RompHim is quite the garment for a not-so-basic guy. The concept has garnered praises from some who’ve called it the next big thing in menswear. But there are others from the fashion fraternity who’ve questioned the romper (or shall we call it the BROmper) on comfort and appropriation. Whatever be the case, the design house that was seeking to receive $10,000 on Kickstarter has now raised about $224,523 from 1,965 backers.
We asked around for opinion, and 5 Indian men told us what they think of rompers for dudes. Read on to know more…
Think of this trend as a ‘must try’ or wonder what’s going on? We’d love to know your thoughts. Comment!
