Men’s Romper Company RompHim Closing Down

Men’s Romper Company RompHim Closing Down

Gee, I just can’t imagine why

Blame toxic masculinity, blame Trump, blame climate change, but the days of RompHim are numbered.

From NBC:

The founders announced the shutdown in a message addressed to fans of the one-piece clothing.

“It has been an amazing run, but the time has come to close the doors on RompHim,” the founders said in a statement.

“There are few things in the world quite like building something from scratch. In our case, we got to take an idea – an idea that most people told us was ridiculous – and turn it into a business. When we started out, we said we just wanted to use fashion to try to bring some more joy and self-expression into the world. In the end we managed to do just that … and had some fun and learned some stuff along the way.”

The company first announced its Kickstarter in 2017, enjoying a viral reaction online. That popularity faded quickly after.

RompHim grabbed headlines for their unique take on men’s fashion: namely, marketing rompers, typically seen as clothing items for women and very young children, to grown men. While reactions were divided, this catapulted discussion of the concept into mainstream fashion spaces like GQVogue and Esquire.

With advertising highlighting a cheeky, “I’m here to have fun, not fit in” attitude, men’s rompers became a short-lived, off-kilter token of late-2010s men’s summer fashion. The actual number of men wearing them, however, was relatively low, and they were mostly popular in the LGBTQ community.

Never heard of them, I don’t think I missed anything worthwhile.

Buy them now, in the future they’ll be collectors pieces.

Well…………….maybe not.

The fashion idea every bit as wonderful as those oversized white sunglasses the (alleged) man on the right of the photo is wearing.

So the guy has to take the entire garment off in order to use the bathroom? Brilliant! /sarc

So stupid not even the metrosexuals would go for it.

Advertising is difficult to reach soy boys in mom’s basement. Should’ve branched out into footie flannel pajamas.

The jury is out, awaiting word from Mayor Pete.

    His office said not to worry. He stocked up before they went out of business.

    Mayor Pete was relieved by the news that his husband had the foresight to stock up on this amazing product before it was too late. Now that the supply is short Bloomberg reportedly snapped up all that were left on the bottom shelf.

What? Has anyone ever heard of this? Why is this posted? Was this a big deal on some woke campus somewhere?

Yes — that most people were right.

No one by bozos want to wear ‘obamajamas’.

obama is supporting bloomberg for president. What else do you need to know not to vote for the bastard?

Haven’t seen that word in awhile. Any other’s of the 50’s who remember Romper Room? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0aFlgq48AU

‘Men’s Romper Company RompHim Closing Down’

Incels hardest hit.

Hard to stay in business when you can count your yearly sales on one hand, and that’s after losing a couple of fingers in a freak hair mousse accident.

When you are not just satisfied with being a douche canoe, but are out to prove it and let the world know! RompHim!

Pete Butthead has a house account. And probably an outstanding balance.

Parroting Norm MacDonald’s review of “Interview With the Vampire” on SNL, “not gay enough.”

I’ve always dreamed of masculine men wearing sherbet colored onesies. It took them two years to go out of business?? SHE must have been living in mom’s basement.

30 years from now:

Uncle Pete, is that you in that picture, wearing pink baby clothing?
Is that why you never had kids?

Gay people don’t wear that shit.

    A transgender male wouldn’t. A trans-social (e.g. transvestite) male may. Also, masochistic males and their sadistic females may enjoy it as part of their socially progressive play.

Good grief!!!! That’s something in which I would not be caught dead! Nothing else so clearly screams both the infanitilization and the feminization of the American male.

Well, I learned a new word. I had heard of the TV show Romper Room, but never of a “romper”.
