I keep hearing about this internet thing. Maybe some day I will try it.

Are you going to get a romper?

Seems kinda gay to me.

This is just another fake fashion craze like the claims hipster men were going to start wearing feminine skirts.

If you notice the ONLY photos they have are of 3 male models that were taken from the single Kickstarter project that is trying to push this idiocy.

Not a single photo of guys in the wild wearing this garbage. Because we aren't.

"Everybody's" talking about it, though. I've seen people in my Facebook feed saying they're going to get one (jokingly). Maybe it's just talk.

Oh sheesh, all the "models" are the ivy league marketing bros who founded the company.

Good luck finding anyone who isn't an employee of the kickstarter scheme or their models wearing these.

"I can imagine college bros donning these at theme parties after having applied a fresh coat of specialized beard taming gel. The peach-colored material will contrast nicely with their bicep tattoos."

How to tell your generations apart:

boomer: no tattoos
gen X: tribal calf tattoo (men), tramp stamp (women),
millenial: bicep tattoo (men), bicep tattoo (women)

(Too early to say exactly what the digital native generation will do... let's check back in a couple of years.)

>There’s also the benefit of the romper being difficult to take off, and possibly a little snug. These are features, not bugs. You aren’t going to need to take it off, and you’re definitely not going to be deploying any future descendants while wearing it, so the fact that excessive tightness and heat are bad for your swimmers keeps your body from doing unnecessary work.

Genau. You'd have Buckley's chance of a quickie in the ensuite inside from the BBQ while wearing one of those cropped onesies.

That's a jumpsuit. Pilots wear them.

Rompers don't have full length legs or sleeves.
