Patterico's Pontifications


Introducing The Male, Um, Romper

[guest post by Dana]

In case you are weary from the politics of the day, I thought I’d throw up a post and look at a recent effort being made to “revolutionize men’s fashion”:


It’s the one-piece romper for men: the RompHim. From the project’s Kickstarter page:


Yeah, you know who else won’t want to take that thing off? Any woman. Because they’re not going to go anywhere near you wearing that ridiculous thing.

  6. Is that Sammy Davis Jr’s grandson?

  7. So when Pajama Boys grow up they become Romphim men. How cute.

  8. Everything needs a revolution! You get a revolution! You get a revolution! And you get a revolution! Everyone gets a revolution!

  9. Yeah, you know who else won’t want to take that thing off? Any woman.

    That may be a feature.

  10. Not even as pajamas.

  11. Yeah, you know who else won’t want to take that thing off? Any woman.

    Do you SEE any women there?

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  12. No, just No. How any male that values their self image could wear this is mind boggling. Guys, don’t let the enemedia and the so-called fashion industry ruin you by wearing this “thing”.

    Rick (fbced7)

  13. Even sillier than the leisure suit!

  14. When you’re wearing a onesie people might mistake it for immature, so to reassert adulthood you have to accessorize with the proper adult footwear, to even the scales.

    Here’s some shoes from the Cliff Claven collection. [YouTube] Should do the trick.

  15. why does the black guy have to wear a pimp coat

    this is not social justice :(

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  16. I would have to be pretty drunk to wear that. Hence the alcohol in hand. They look smashed.

    felipe (b5e0f4)

  17. Jerry: You do know that only 15% of the population is date-able, right?

    Elain: If that’s true, then how are all these people hooking up?

    Jerry: Alcohol.

  18. It looked better on Carol Burnett. (Singing “Little Girls” in “Annie”.)

  19. They’ll be fitting on college campuses and newsrooms, which have become huge Romper Rooms.

    harkin (e0ff3c)

  20. 6.Is that Sammy Davis Jr’s grandson?

    It so, it’s proof that good taste is NOT hereditary.

    mark (ca18be)

  21. The Jerome character from Martin was the closest to pulling that off, but that’s just sad.

    urbanleftbehind (def4d8)

  22. The only adult men who should wear onesies are (1) prisoners, (2) wrestlers and (3) caddies at The Masters.

    WarrenPeese (494892)

  23. It can’t miss, that outfit is just the thing for fat guys to attract hot babes.

    ropelight (ebdaed)

  24. Watch Goldfinger…….007 was well ahead of this fashion curve……

    Jean Luc (fe0fe2)

  25. The other commercial that signals the end of reason in America is the guy who is all worried and heartbroken because his shirt looks bad untucked. So he invents a shirt that looks good untucked! We are saved!

    Patricia (5fc097)

  26. Who the hell is that aimed at? Straight men with some kind of self-respect won’t be seen in the same room with that. My Gay friends have better taste. Drunken frat boys generally go cheap. That leaves grown men who are dressed by their mothers. Can’t be a big market.

    C. S. P. Schofield (7be1ec)

  27. “24.Watch Goldfinger…….007 was well ahead of this fashion curve……”

    And terry cloth to boot….kind of makes his slap on Dink’s butt and “man-talk” comment kind of lame.

    As much as I love Goldfinger, Bond’s romper is almost as bad as his comment to Jill Masters: “That’s just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs”.

    harkin (9803a7)

  28. That leaves grown men who are dressed by their mothers. Can’t be a big market.

    One would think that, C. S. P. Schofield but in today’s male world of 37 year olds living in mama’s basement the size of the market may surprise you. BTW, slap “Versace” and a $5,000 price tag on a set of gold-on-gild Romphis, add a snap open crotch and they become gay night club attire. Faaabulous!

    Rev.Hoagie® (630eca)

  29. I would not even acknowledge the existence of any erstwhile male appearing in public in one of those things..even if it was a joke.

    MJN1957 (6f981a)

  30. Kinda like riding a moped; cool, UNTIL YOUR FRIENDS SEE YOU.

    Bugg (b7f13d)

  31. Must assume the ….man…on the far right is holding a testosterone booster for this crew.

    Bugg (b7f13d)

  32. I never thought the photo of Obama on his unisex bike could possibly be less manly…..I was wrong – he could have been rocking a man romper.

    harkin (e0ff3c)

  33. ” slap “Versace” and a $5,000 price tag on a set of gold-on-gild Romphis, add a snap open crotch and they become gay night club attire. Faaabulous!”

    – Rev. Hoagie.

    Maybe my Gay acquaintance are embarrassed to admit to being that tacky, but I really don’t see that kind of shlock on the New Hope Scene, nor do I remember seeing anything like that campy-vulgar at Fire Island (admittedly my Fire Island connections were ten years ago. Still…).

    C. S. P. Schofield (99bd37)

  34. Greetings:

    Me, I’m, thinking that you can take the pimp out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of the pimp.

    11B40 (6abb5c)

  35. #33 Not sure where you went but the Roxy had much worse than what Rev Hoagie described.

    And Fire Island, well, spreading disease in the outdoor grasslands was all the rage in the 1980s and 1990s.

    Can’t say how gentrification changed those mating habits.

    Blah Blah (44eaa0)

  36. Looks like the Justin amashole lallapalooza

    mg (31009b)

  37. Um…..I don’t think these particular guys WANT any women to come near them.

    ocean (eba190)

  38. To go along with your romper, a giant binkie.

    papertiger (c8116c)

  39. #35;

    Mating habits are another matter. I’m talking about BEFORE the clothes come off.

    C. S. P. Schofield (99bd37)

  40. “I thought I’d throw up a post…”
    Dana, looking at that picture kinda makes me want to throw up! Squirrelly men wear male rompers.

    Bill M (906260)

  41. Put Make America Great Again on red ones, market them through Walmart, and you’ll sell millions of them.

    Then bring out the Deplorable line.

    Iva nk a (dbc370)

  42. It looks like the damn things cut your manhood off as you put it on.

    NO self-respecting man dresses as a woman! Of course, that means the Dems and MSM (but I repeat myself) will be thronging Anne Taylor Loft to snap up these little numbers. How long before they start selling black, sling-back pumps for “dudes?”

    I think I want to throw up.

    WarEagle82 (02c249)

  43. The nutless look.

    mg (31009b)

  44. Freddy Mercury is spinning in his grave

    steveg (b66960)

  45. They claim these will revolutionize men’s fashion.

    Well, they are revolting.

    Nick M. (d6362a)

  46. They need one in camouflage.

    mg (31009b)

  47. hey could ‘ve made the shorts much shorter or tighter, leaving no room for gonads at all, beaause no one with any gonads would wear one, anyway…
