It seems these days you can get crowdfunding for just about anything. From setting up a Kombucha brewing station in your backyard to sourcing some cash to fund your sea monkeys community, it seems someone, somewhere, is willing to give you a hand.
So when ACED Design decided to produce men’s rompers, the idea was met with applause and high fives (or whatever frat boys do).
For only $5 on Kickstarter you can ‘Be a RompHero’ and help support the label to produce men's rompers. OK, sure.
Apparently, it started when a group of business school guys sat around drinking beers and found a hole in the menswear market for a stylish, comfortable and versatile option.
As if the idea couldn’t get stranger, the promotional video features a guy with an axe, other men dancing at Coachella and someone working out, all in rompers.
We have no problem with men wearing rompers, but we are a little confused with the marketing.
However, it looks like we’re in the minority, with the Kickstarter fund almost tripling the orginial $10,000 goal.
