Rest in Peace, RompHim

The viral clothing company that made rompers for men is, unfortunately, shuttering down.

Remember RompHim, that online clothing retailer that made tons of viral headlines in 2017 because of their gender-bending rompers for men? Well, unfortunately, it looks like they're closing the doors on their operation...for good. 

"It has been an amazing run, but the time has come to close the doors on RompHim," a statement from the company, which BuzzFeed News reports was sent out to customers via email on Wednesday, read. "...thank you for everything." 

RompHim broke the internet three years ago when they debuted their specialty line of rompers (an item of clothing that is usually associated with women) made specifically for men. Since their launch, men from all over have enjoyed RompHim's trendy and super fun offerings.

RompHim was also LGBTQ-inclusive, partnering with The Trevor Project back in 2018 to release a special rainbow-striped romper for Pride Month.

Although the practicality of their rompers was somewhat questionable (how the hell do you go to the bathroom in these things??), RompHim did have a cult following and their clothing offered the bland AF menswear landscape a colorful and welcome reprieve.

"We came together as a group of friends looking to answer a simple question: why were men's clothing options so limited?" reads the RompHim origin story on their official website. "Everything was either too corporate…too fratty…too "runway"…or too basic. Something was missing. Why wasn’t there anything out there that allowed guys to be more stylish and fun without also sacrificing comfort, fit, and versatility? The more we thought about it, the more we realized that a romper hits all of these attributes—they can be dressed up or down and they’re unique, fashionable, and cool. But the one thing a romper didn’t have? A version for men. So we set out to fix that, and so much more."

One thing is for sure: with RompHim's closing, men's fashion just got a whole lot more boring! Rest in peace, RompHim! We hardly knew ya, but you will be missed!
