ROMPERS. . . AARGghhhh!

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

A bit too much. I don't see this one catching on!

Hmm, I guess one could make cutoffs (sleeves and legs) out of some old mechanic's coveralls and accomplish about the same. No thanks. Not following the fashion sheeple on this one unless it's out of sarcasm.

Another garment with two stovepipes albeit short ones !
Video comment laughed over - men wearing needing the
use of the loo - terrible inconvenience - need the model
with the drop flap in the rear.

Personally just as soon wear a tennis dress for better getting
in and out of the garment and less restrictive features i.e.
crotch seaming surgical application and perhaps skid marks
when the limits are stretched !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

What's next - add legs and feet and you'll have what - BABYGROWERS. Er, thanks but, no thanks.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Maybe we should get a couple of these.

Not to wear right away, but keep around
for a Halloween costume - or other event
where a silly outfit is expected to be worn.

I have actually seen this abomination on a man at the closest tax office. As noted before such an outfit would be quite awkward whenever someone needed to do a number two on the toilet.

I must be the only one who likes them, I just love one piece garments, I don't know why maybe it's a through back from my child hood.

Sorry :oops: just found one of me

Is the pig real or a statue?

Rompers... Do you have to completely undress to avail yourself of the sanitary facilities, or are "adult briefs" recommended?

I use to have a one piece pijama when I was 3 or 4yo I guess. It was all one-piece all the way to the socks.

These look like my summer pijamas anyway, except mine are two piece (short and t-shirt). Not sure I would wear one of those except at home.

Don't you need someone to 'romp' with to wear rompers? :shock:

I wore my kilt out and about today and at the bank there were five ladies in line and at the counter. One gregarious young lady started a conversation and she really liked the kilt and wondered if there was a special occasion....

"No....nothing special....it's just warm outside." :)

For some reason they cracked up. :roll:

:roll: As usual, after the fact I thought....maybe I should have mentioned the 'breeze between the knees'......nahh. :mrgreen:

Particulars:
1 Scottish National tartan from Stillwater - Thrifty Kilt
1 Red turtle-neck tank top worn under
1 Blue long-sleeve dress shirt with collar undone at neck and 1st button below.
2 Black knee socks
2 Black Brooks walking shoes
1 Tumi cross-body messenger bag

Guess that'd be MY romping outfit.....
