ORLANDO – Many people thought by 2017 we'd have flying cars or time travel. Well, we don't have those yet.  However, we do have something arguably as innovative: The male romper.

Romper dresses have been a popular trend with women this summer. The piece looks like a dress, but the bottom forms into shorts. A Kickstarter called RompHim wanted men to get in on the fashion statement as well, according to a report from WKMG

The rompers designed by RompHim are specifically designed for men. They promise in their product description, "Once you put it on, you won't want to take this thing off." 

The male romper, or RompHim, is designed for all shapes and sizes. The design comes with a front shirt pocket, adjustable waist tabs and a zippered back pocket to keep wallets safe.

The biggest difference between the male and female romper, however, is the zipper fly. The designers found that women's biggest complaint about the romper was the need to get "full undressed" to use the bathroom, so the RompHim team designed the sturdy metal zipper to make things easier for the male romper wearer.

Designers said the RompHim is perfect for summer to keep cool as well as comfortable and stylish. The male rompers come in different designs and several different sizes which can be found on their size chart.

RompHims are available for purchase on the company's website. The male rompers start at $90.
