The Good And Bad Of Men In Rompers, Do You Agree?

Ok, where to start.  First, I personally am not a fan of rompers on my own body, they can be uncomfortable and if you have to go to the bathroom one side of said romper will  inevitably end up laying in a pool of God only knows what on the public restroom floor.  There's good and bad when it comes to rompers for guys, here they are and you decide.

Embrace At A Wisconsin Bar Is A Great Idea, But Sad Sign Of The Times
