Chicago is the birthplace of skyscrapers, car radios and the TV remote control—and now, despite our better judgment, rompers for men. Evanston-based ACED Design is trying to make the RompHim happen through an already successful Kickstarter campaign. With 28 days to go, the campaign has already raised over $67,000, blowing their original $10,000 goal out of the water.

The rompers, which are designed for men and manufactured in Chicago, feature adjustable waist tabs, a zipper fly, deep front pockets and a front shirt pocket. We can only assume the extra storage is for your lifeless soul. The onesie-like ensembles will be available in red and blue chambray and splatter print cotton. According to the Kickstarter campaign, the dudes behind ACED Design say they felt there wasn’t “anything out there that allowed guys to be more stylish and fun without also sacrificing comfort, fit and versatility.” And so the RompHim was born.

Though you won’t be able to find RompHims out in the retail wild just yet, the first order of special Fourth of July-themed RompHims are expected to be delivered to Kickstarter backers in time for the holidays. (We can’t make this shit up.)
