So there is a social media trend that has come across my newsfeed a lot in the past week regarding men’s fashion. It’s called the Romphim, which is the male version of a romper. The positive and negative feedback about the new fashion statement has been torn down the middle. Both males and females have had their fair share of opinions. Now here is mine:
- First, let’s talk pronunciation. Since the information I am seeing is what I am reading via social media articles and memes, I haven’t really heard the pronunciation that people are using for this new trend. Now, according to grammar rules, when there is a “ph” one should pronounce it like an “F” sound. So technically, it should sound like romfim. However, since this is the male version of a romper, they are taking the word as if it was romp-her and pronouncing it like romp-him. Either way you pronounce it, we know what you’re talking about.
- Some men are feeling it heavily like Cam Newton, who I have pictured. Other men are not able to separate it from being a girl thing and are saying that it is feminine look. I personally know that the look is dope. If any man looked half as good as Cam Newton does in a romper, then I’m here for it. It’s not as if the romphim has to be tight and short like some rompers are. They can be masculine, not go above the knee and still have a great print or be made from a nice material. It’s fashionable and if I saw a guy wearing one, I’d think he definitely isn’t basic.
- The memes. The memes. The memes. The internet is too much for me sometimes. People think of everything! Here are a few: So guys, don’t be afraid to at least try out a romper this summer. You NEVER know what you might like.
