Let’s face it. The convenient tiny waistpack (that makes either your stomach or your lower back look like it’s grown a camel hump) is pretty much an American staple.*
*Have you figured out yet that I know absolutely nothing about fashion?
Now, you may have thought that fanny packs were simply the butt of 90s related jokes. You may have thought that they were a terrible time in clothes-wearing history that we, as proper countrymen, would all agree was better left behind us.
Well, you’re wrong.
People are trying** to bring them back.
**Succeeding. If you can call making fanny packs popular “success.”
And Etsy, home of all things ahead of the fashionable curve, is totally behind this.
But best of all, there’s a Kickstarter. We all know how I love prowling around Kickstarter.
This one is my favorite. In part because, well, it’s next to impossible to make a fanny pack subtle. But this Kickstarter totally succeeds. And also, because there’s totally a BONUS THING TO WEAR.
Basically, the lesson here is:
The Internet will never let the 90s die.***
***And we’re all very grateful for that. Right, guys? Right?
