men….rock out a fanny pack ….r not?

 

 

A soccer mom at Disney, a tourist in socks and flipflops, a grandfather using a metal detector at a crowded beach—this is the demographic of people still wearing fanny packs.A little language lesson: The word fanny has a different (and less PG-13) meaning in Britain, where they call the accessory a “bum bag.” A rose is still a rose by any other name though. The fanny pack was once a huge global phenomenon until it became so popular, it reached the point of mockery.We would hate to call the fanny pack the new comeback kid, but the needle seems to tip that way. Kanye West, Ovadia & Sons, Telfar, and multiple other menswear brands all showed some form of fanny packs during New York Fashion Week.

We’re seeking answers. First question: Dear lord, why? Second question: How did the humble hip-bag get its start?

~3,300 B.C.: THE ICE-COLD LOOK

In 1991, tourists in the Alps stumbled upon the mummified body of fashion influencer Ötzi Iceman. The ancient dead man had a pouch sewn to his belt containing only the necessities: a scraper, drill, flint flake, bone awl, and a piece of dried fungus (not that we know what a bone awl is).

3000 B.C.: DRESS LIKE AN EGYPTIAN

We don’t believe they had a symbol for the term “fanny pack,” but hieroglyphs do show ancient Egyptians sporting what looks like an ancient Jansport cop. The bible also refers to Judas Iscariot as a “purse carrier,” meaning not a handbag but a small bag hung from the girdle at the back—making him know for both betraying Jesus and rocking a hip-bag.

16TH TO 20TH CENTURY: OUTFITTED FOR BATTLES OF YESTERYEAR

In modern times, people with concealed carry permits love to hide their handguns in fanny packs (so maybe you should keep your jokes to yourself). The soldiers of yore also loved a good leather bag on their sword belts, or more recently, ammunition belts.
