Why Is Everyone Talking About Male Rompers? #RompHim

RompHim Romper

This summer may no longer be known as sundress season but romper season.


A menswear company, RompHim, is encouraging men to try out their new romper line.

“Turn hears and break hearts when you take your RompHim for a spin,” reads their description on Kickstarter. There was also an article posted about the company on Esquire yesterday. One day later, it went viral and became a trending topic on Twitter with over 250,000 tweets on the fashion statement.

So far, RompHim has raised over $71,000 on Kickstarter. (Their initial goal was $10,000.) And with that, they may just start the next new trend in menswear fashion this summer. It seems that the company is looking towards being inclusive as well.

“We tested our RompHims on guys of all shapes and sizes to make sure we offer something for everyone,” read the Kickstarter. The site also noted their “buttoned waist tabs help you get the most flattering contours possible.” There’s also the part that makes or breaks whether or not one should buy a romper — pockets. The RompHim has a front pocket, a zippered back pocket and two deep front pockets. It also has a zippered fly.

Sounds good to us!

While famous men like Andre 3000 have worn jumpsuits, the romper may be a game-changer this summer.

Will you be wearing a romper this summer? For $95, you can snag one early from RompHim’s Kickstarter.

Tailoring is key!

Rompers vs. Jumpsuits:

If the top is attached to long pants, it’s a jumpsuits or jumper. If it’s attached to shorts, it’s a rompers.

By Turning Headphones into a Bracelet, ‘Wraps’ Has Managed to Keep Us From Ever Losing Them Again (Review + Giveaway)

Headphones may have been used as a fashion accessory before, but never really as a bracelet. ‘Wraps’ gives us a new way to carry our headphones…and look stylish while doing so.

MyWraps

I cannot begin to tell you how many headphones I have lost or destroyed over the years.  Whether it was cheap headphones, the ones that come when you buy a new cell phone, or even some of the pricier ones, I always found a way to lose them.


And if I didn’t lose them, they were constantly getting tangled up.  Sometimes to the point where the headphones would break and not function properly.

When I bought a pair of Beats headphones for the first time (only because they were on sale), they came with a carrying case, but who really wants to carry an extra case around with them for some headphones?  I mean, I understood what the case was for, to protect what I paid about $100 for, but it just wasn’t my style.  I just wanted some durable earbuds to walk around in and workout with.

The bottom line is this: headphones have become too much of an accessory in my life to the point where I’d have them literally on all day, even when I’m not listening or talking to anyone.  And I found myself often just tossing them to the side when they begin to get in my way.  Thus leading to them getting tangled, which led to them breaking.

Well, a company called Wraps has come up with a genius solution to this age old problem. Why not turn our headphones into fashion-wear?

They have turned headphones into hand bracelets, and offer them in the following three ranges: classic, wood, and leather.

The purpose of these “bracelets” is to store your headphones, keep them from tangling, and adds a little style to your wrist.

Some of the versions even come with a built-in microphone so you can make and take calls as well.

The model I played around with was from their Natural series.  I picked a black leather one which I must say looks pretty good on my wrist.  And even though I’m not a bracelet kind of guy, it felt pretty stylish and I even had a few folks ask me where to get one. Look and feel wise, these are rather well made, and look and feel good.

The idea of wrapping them around your hands is great, and once you have done it a few times, it feels rather natural and useful.

All you need to do is grasp the earbuds in your hands, wrap the cable around your wrist using the other hand, and insert the audio jack into the clasp. A bit of reorganizing means that you can easily sort this into a good looking bracelet.

Of course, these are more than just a fashion accessory, these are also headphones, so let’s look at that aspect of them. They offer the following feature set:

  • 10mm Dynamic Driver
  • Frequency Range: 20Hz – 20kHz
  • Rated Power: 3mW
  • Cable: 1.2m
  • Bass Enhanced

And these headphones give out a pleasant sound.  Not bad at all.  These are definitely not the best headphones money can buy, but for the price, you’d be hard-pressed to find something more suitable.  Keep in mind that the reason, you’d most likely buy a pair of these is because you’re staying away from purchasing the expensive models anyway.

My final verdict is that this is a simple idea, but it’s executed brilliantly.  Hopefully down the line, they may be able to come up with a Bluetooth option that’s better quality, although a little pricier.

The prices for these headphones start at $14.99, with the one I reviewed going for $29.99.

You can purchase from their website by going here.

The Beauty in Domestic Violence

“Yassss honey, your face is beat!” is currently a common phrase in the beauty industry. There are so many women that do not see that phrase as a compliment.

I cannot pinpoint the first time that I heard, “Yassss honey, your face is beat!” in reference to beauty; but it didn’t sit well with me. I was confused when I heard it. It sounded like a backwards compliment. When I heard it I thought about the scars that are hidden by makeup. Scars caused by the hands of a person that says “I love you”. The eye shadow that does not take away the swelling from a black eye. The lip stick that blends the blood from a busted lip. Blush that provides contrast to the bruises. Concealer that masks the facial destruction. I think about the pain of domestic violence.


The beauty industry has taken the phrase “beat your face” and made it into something that makes people more comfortable with the idea of having a beat face. In my opinion, that is an odd choice of words. It is understood that words have power. Words also have history and meaning. The fact that the terminology refers to assault, abuse, and pain does not lend itself well to beauty. As a survivor of domestic violence, I take offense to the phrase. I was not beaten in the face but I was broken on a regular basis. However, there were times that I feared for my life.

Hearing someone say that they are going to willing have their “face beat” sends so many of the wrong signals. There are 1 in 3 women that suffer from intimate partner violence every day. The women that are getting their makeup done are not doing so in honor of those women. They are getting made up for pleasure. When a woman is living in an abusive relationship, she wears makeup to cover the scars. At the same time, women wear masks to hide from the shame of the abuse. Often times makeup is seen as a mask regardless of the situation. It only adds insult to injury when it is said that beautiful makeup is equivalent to a beat face.

I get the idea of new slang and innovative ways to say the same thing. This is one that just does not seem like it was well thought out. The beauty industry typically promotes beauty and tranquility. Domestic violence goes directly against that. There are multiple forms of domestic violence that infect relationships. Many people suffer in silence and live in pain. It is not easy to be in these situations. In addition, it is not always easy to get out.  The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence provides assistance to both victims and survivors.
