We live in a day and age in which breakfast burritos, car services, helicopters, and dry cleaning can be delivered at the push of a button. Ah, what a time to be alive.
Unfortunately, this golden era we’re in also happens to have rebirthed a male fashion trend we had hoped would never again see the light of day: Male Rompers. Hide yo' kids and hide yo' wives.
LEAVE THE ROMPER BEHIND...
We say “rebirthed,” because this is not the male romper’s first rodeo. One of history’s greats, the Seannery (Sean Connery) himself unfortunately fell victim to this terrible trend:
Sean Connery in Goldfinger (1964)
We urge you not to use this example as justification, but rather as a lesson learned.
If you still find yourself intrigued by this trend, please ask yourself...why? It’s probably the general aesthetic of a tonal look that has caught your attention… and we have have an alternative for you!
...AND MEET THE TONAL OUTFIT
Some of our favorite styles are tonal looks – tonal meaning of the same color/monochromatic. This aesthetic can be accomplished with solid colors or similarly-patterned top/bottom combos (and if you choose patterns, best to keep them subtle). It’s still not for everyone, but when done right, the look can give you a fun, bold, and sophisticated edge.
So gentlemen, if you’re curious about male rompers, try this alternative for a sleek ensemble without the tool factor. You’ll thank us… if for no other reason than that your grown-ass man body won’t have to be butt naked while using the restroom. There really is no need for a second point– let’s be real. C’mon fellas…you’re better than that.
If you're looking for a tonal outfit to spice up your look, shop our Summer 2017 Collection and explore the world of subtle prints and minimalist combos. Go ahead— liven up your look.
