Unless you’ve been cut off from civilization for the last few days, you’ve seen the menswear trend of the moment: the men’s romper is making a return. RompHim, a kickstarter project to make stylish men’s rompers got some media attention and set the internet on fire with people who either absolutely loved or absolutely hated the idea of a gentleman wearing a romper.
Here’s the problem:
Their sizes end at size 41 waist. As of now, there are no options for bigger guys. You thought we we’re going to complain about guys wearing rompers, didn’t you? Nope. We believe you can wear whatever you want. You won’t suddenly be less masculine because you’re wearing a romper. Don’t let outdated ideas of masculinity hold you back. If you can find a romper in a size 46, or 56, wear it with pride! Style is in the eye of the beholder, and you shouldn’t be afraid to take chances, and try something outside of your comfort zone.
Want man-rompers in your size? Be vocal – make sure the people behind RompHim know they need to add extended sizes, and quickly. Take to social media, or their website, and let them know. If you don’t want to wait for the plus size men’s romper craze to come around, you can take matters into your own hands, and cut up a jumpsuit, or look for an alternative in your size. Blaine Provancha, who you see above went the short overall route, and put together a good look from ASOS. (You should follow him: @blainestagram) If they don’t have your size, your DIY skills might have to come out.
Rest assured, we’re looking for men’s big and tall rompers, and when we find them, we’ll bring them to you here.
The moral of the story here is that you can and should wear whatever you want, show off your style, and be unafraid to try a new and potentially interesting look. That’s how you figure out what works for you, and what doesn’t.
