Mankinis have come for the male romper as this summer’s hottest trend

It even has a cutout

The RompHim is done. Over. Old news. So two days ago. We have more important things to deal with. Let it go right now because the world has just graced us with the latest in Trends Literally No One Asked For.

Behold, the mankini.

The trend started by Borat way back when and kept alive with the help of European islands, has come back in the form of a fashionable one-piece swimsuit for men.

The mankini which is supposedly “coming soon by WardBody" is modeled by Antoine Ward Jr who posted the photos on Instagram.

Oo & by the way. I live by no one's rules or standards, but my own.

The 2017 mankini is pictured in a deep red tone and is tailored for a snug fit from a man's crotch all the way to his chest.

To top it off the design also features an eye-shaped cutout in the lower back.

Perfect for showing off one's tramp stamp

But there's a very obvious issue with this tight piece of fabric — its name. Why the fuck are we calling it a 'mankini' when it's so clearly a one-piece.

I'm all for rebranding it a swim leotard.

The summer trend already has Twitter blowing up and canceling the entire goddamn year because it's gone one step too far.

No further information on launch dates or color options have been announced, but babe has contacted the mankini's designer and will update this story with any further details.
