    Bend over to touch your toes and those suckers will wedgie your butt crack something fierce. Me, I don't care what anyone says, I'm sticking with my cargo shorts. If you don't like it, don't look! :woot::thumbsup:

  6. Why is the entire internet suddenly talking about these things today? I had neither seen nor heard of them before this morning, and suddenly they're all over facebook, news sites, reddit... and now talkbass too.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that we're all targets of a massive viral marketing campaign.

    That is one of the worst looks I have ever seen in male "fashion". Talk about giving up your man card.

    Everyone take pictures of dudes if you see them wearing this crap. Will have serious blackmail value in the not to distant future.

    A lot of insecure males here seem to think their masculinity is tied to their choice of attire...

    And women don't? I know a whole bunch of women who wouldn't be caught in public wearing their "working in the garden" clothes, but I have never known a man who was ashamed to be seen in dusty jeans, or whatever. My mother-in-law is a sweet, wonderful woman, but she will NEVER go anywhere without "dressing for it."

    Everyone has their limitations, and, until I saw those photos I had never even known what a "romper" was, but I will certainly never wear such a thing. (Lessee...wasn't that a Dirty Harry quote, or something? "Man's gotta know...")

    If you look at somebody's attire and say "they're not a real man/woman" based on their choice of clothing, it says more about you than them. What a ludicrous way to pigeonhole people.

    Sorry if I was unclear, I never said anybody did but several people here are commenting on the idea that wearing a romper will somehow reduce your masculinity or cause others to view you as feminine, something our society looks down upon. That would be pigeonholing people into a "not male" category. Mind you, you did allude to a Dirty Harry quote presumably implying about the outward display of masculinity.
