As of publishing, the RompHim has raised over $220,000, well past its initial $10,000 goal. It could be easy to dismiss it as a flash in the pan, a moment of light in the midst of numerous pending international crises that everyone threw money at just to feel again. But now Reebok is getting in on the one-piece action. The men’s romper is officially A Thing.
The “ReeRomp” (sure) assures men that this is a MAN’S outfit. It’s “built for bros” and “100% Br,” according to Reebok, and features all manner of masculine details, from a reflective zipper to “ACTIVECHILL” cooling fabric. And clearly, Reebok rushed to get it up. It’s not even available for another 32 days, and the only available images are sketches of what it will eventually look like on a model.

“The trend has gained tremendous momentum, so we wanted to share the news of the ReeRomp with our consumers as quickly as possible,” said Mark Leonardo, Senior Design Director of Reebok Global Apparel. And while they recognize rompers are still new fashion territory for a lot of men, “men, just like women, want to be stylish and comfortable.”
Honestly? Great. Men’s fashion is so often a sea of pants and button-down shirts, and everyone should get a chance to express themselves through fashion freely. We’re just jealous that they get to pee through a zip-fly.
