Fashion is an expression of one's personal style. It is something that is left to the interpretation of the Designer and the person who wears it.

Flashback to a few weeks ago when we saw the emergence of the RompHIM which is a Romper for men. Rompers are not new, and neither is the RompHIM ... just imagine a shorter version of a long-john and you get the RompHIM.

In just 2 days after the launch, the RompHIM went viral and was on the lips and fingertips of everyone on the Internet. There are however a few people who have found the RompHIM to be offensive and it has even sparked an online debate.

The male romper has the world divided (not really) since it debut, some people think it's genius while others think it is a disgrace to Fashion. Offensive or not we thing the RompHIM is one of those controversial trends that might be here to stay for seasons beyond now. It's functional , trendy , comfortable and unlike the female romper, there is a zipper in the middle that makes it easy for men to pee! What more could you possibly ask for in a garment?
