This Just In: Romper Update from NY Correspondent

I love that I have elves keeping me updated on romper and harem pant activity all across the globe. (I also a fashion-minded friend who frequently sends me heinous outfits she finds on Shopbop.com). This morning I received the following communication from Operative B (aka Miss Monneypenny):

Subject: Are You Aware

That now, when I search in vain for something I can afford on one of my favorite websites, the categories for dresses are:

Jumpsuits and Rompers


Are you fucking kidding me? Since when is a jumpsuit/romper a DRESS? It has LEG HOLES. It has SEPARATION at the CROTCH. It flatters NO ONE.

What's next? Romper-clad bridesmaids? Business suits including formal shorts?



P.S. The poster pictured above—not sent from B—is for a 1992 movie that technically tells "the story of a gang of violent neo-Nazi skinheads from Footscray, Victoria, Australia" and stars Russel Crowe, but I'd like to think that when they're not beating up minorities they are fighting the spread of rompers throughout the fashion world...

  1. Just wanted to applaud your genius in linking the inherent evil of rompers directly to Hitler.

    (Might I suggest the supporting argument that the preposition "his" referenced in the poster's German tagline "His Bible is..." refers to the jumpsuit/romper itself.)
