Finally! The moment we've all been waiting for has arrived. Rompers. For men. I know. What has taken the world so long, you ask? That, I cannot answer. All you need to know is that they are here, and that as of this moment, 616 backers on the RompHim Kickstarter page have pledged $63,624 to help make this dream a reality ... toward the initial $10,000 goal.

Yep, these rompers may soon be popping up on a man near you.

What's that, you say? Just how did these "rompers designed especially for men" finally come about?

"We were sitting around over drinks one evening and got to talking about the men's clothing options out there," the creators explain on Kickstarter

(K, totally get it, sounds reasonable, guys!)

"Everything was either too corporate, too fratty, too 'runway', or too basic," they continue. "Something was missing." 

AND THAT SOMETHING?

Nothing fratty here!

The Internet obviously has many, many feelings about this. "The Bro Romper Exists and I Don't Want to Live on This Planet Anymore," laments Esquire

"Good God, This Company Is Making Rompers for Dudes," exclaims Racked. "Meet the RompHim, a true eyesore."

"Romphim, the Ridiculous Kickstarter Campaign Trying to Make Male Playsuits a Thing," sniffs the Independent. "I think we've taken crowdfunding too far!"

And Twitter, of course, has many, many feels:

However, I must say, men wearing rompers is an idea whose time has come. Why not?! Come on, world. Why should these baby costumes be any sillier on a man than on a grown woman? If we really want a society where the feminine is valued as much as the masculine, and where gender roles are a matter of personal preference and not a means of enforcing archaic stereotypes, then it's time to be equally as cool about men wearing cute "girly" stuff as we are about women wearing "boyfriend" jeans. 

The torture that is trying on and wearing rompers is something that really should be shared equally among the genders, no? Everyone should be familiar with the feeling of slipping a romper up over one's waist with no problem, only to find one must choose between standing with a hunched back all day, or enduring a permanent camel toe!

On the flip side -- the joy of a perfectly fitting romper, paired with your cutest summer wedges, on a gorgeous summer day ... well, that joy really cannot be paralleled. JOIN US, MEN! We welcome you to this crazy world of highs and lows.

However, there is ONE major flaw in the RompHim that needs to be rectified immediately: 

Romphim
CHEATING.

No. Zipper. Fly.

The whole point of rompers is that they are super cute YET super impractical.

We demand that the Romphim creators immediately rethink this design flaw, and then they'll really be onto something.

Isn't there something sort of wonderful about the thought of men all across America, struggling to pee in public restrooms whilst not tripping as they attempt to keep their rompers pooled around their ankles, yet not touching the floor?

Perhaps even more thrilling is to contemplate this notion: The next act to follow Romphims obviously will be MANSUITS. Just think about it. Body suits ... that snap ... at the crotch ... for men. 

SO COMFY!

Once les hommes en masse are introduced to the sheer torture that is wearing this particular item of clothing, we will finally have a better understanding between men and women. It's a no-brainer.

And there are still 28 days to go. Who knows what heights we as a society can reach in that time? Rompers for all!
