There’s an old fashion trend boiling up this summer in men’s wear and its stirring up a lot of conversation. The “romper”, a shirt and pants combo, which is no secret to women’s fashion, caught the attention of men. Fashion runway models, commoners, and even infants sport the male version of the romper, deemed a “romphim.”
Men can wear Romphims as pants, shorts, short sleeves, or just plain straps. Romphims are now more than ever at their most popular point in fashion history, but can be found in old 80’s photos, being worn by celebrities such as Mike Tyson.

Local Stylist and Creative Director, Syrajh Hamilton holds a different opinion about the new Romphim, saying he didn’t understand what the big deal is, and that fashion changes constantly.
“I just see it as another way to express male fashion. We are already limited, I am definitely going to embrace this style” said Hamilton.
