Historically, only women have had the privilege of sporting the famous shorts-and-blouse hybrid garment known as the romper. However, that might soon change with the invention of the "RompHim." That's right -- the RompHim is a new shorts-and-shirt combo designed for men.
There's no longer a need to try to match your shirt with your pants, guys. The RompHim solves that issue for you. On Monday, May 15, ACED Design launched the RompHim on Kickstarter. The clothing item features deep pockets with zippers and an adjustable waist.
From concerts to beach days to walks in the park, the makers of the RompHim want it to be every guy's "favorite summer outfit." There are loads of options for fashion-forward men, such as red chambray and splatter print cotton. And if you act fast and contribute to the campaign soon, there's even a Fourth of July special edition option available.
So far, many people seem to be in favor of the innovative menswear -- the campaign has already received more than $50,000 in funding, surpassing its initial $10,000 goal in only 24 hours. However, people can't help but poke fun at the quirky new outfit that will "turn heads and break hearts."
