Do men really buy this stuff? Introducing the Man-Gro, the onesie for men

I was under the impression that jumpsuits (and playsuits, and onesies, and whatever else you want to call them) were distinctly unpopular with men. I thought, despite being loved by females of all varieties – from hipster girls to WAGS in the making – that they fell under the heading of man-repelling, along with dungarees, turbans, biker boots and harem pants. But apparently that doesn’t mean men don’t want to jump on the jumpsuit bandwagon themselves: introducing the Man-Gro. That’s right, it’s like a babygro, but for a man. Made by American Essentials, the Man-Gro is an all-in-one pyjama suit, designed for men who don’t want to be ‘disturbed by rising tees shirts or falling shorts’ at night. Is that really an existing problem? I had no idea.

Does anyone else find the Man-Gro concept really quite weird, and a bit too close to the adult baby phenomenon (google at your own risk) for comfort? Or is snuggling up during the cold winter months in his and hers sleepsuits your idea of a great night in? Personally I’m not convinced, and I’m putting the Man-Gro firmly in the woman-repelling category.

The Man-Gro, £95, by American Essentials, will be available in Selfridges and at Selfridges.com from October 2011.

    Ha, it should come with an ‘instant turn off’ warning.

    Personally, I think it’s hideous! People who are -not- repelled by the sight of grown people wearing these things should probably be added to some kind of register…
