A fashion trend that jumped from the runway to Instagram popularity may be emerging into the real world: jumpsuits for men.
That’s right. The one-piece is no longer just for mechanics, bee keepers or race car drivers. The 70s-inspired couture that's now popular among women is also being revived for men.
Andy Cohen, the host of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” has professed his love for the one-piece, and Jonathan Skow, designer of Mr. Turk, a line of men’s clothing, says the jumpsuit is one of his best sellers.
“If you can look great and have it be simple, that's kind of the selling point,” Skow said.
The men's jumpsuits in the Mr. Turk line come in a range of styles and fabrics -– from the classic khaki, to the poolside romper (the shorter version of the jumpsuit), to a holiday-inspired, Elvis Presley-style piece.
“Good Morning America” hit the streets to get people’s reaction to the trend. Most were opposed to it.
So, too, was Joe Zee, Yahoo Style’s editor-in-chief.
“I do not think a jumpsuit or a romper looks good on a guy,” said Zee, who appeared on “Good Morning America” as part of the “Yahoo Your Day” series.
Zee warned men not to embrace the jumpsuit trend too quickly.
“Some things are better off for the ladies,” he said.
Skow, though, would rather let the men decide.
“It's fashion. It's fun. That's the whole point of fashion, right?” he said.
