Fanny

A good friend of mine was recently photographed and subsequently mocked for his choice in hands-free gear-carrying:

According to my source:
The Oscar winner, 44, laughed off his style choice with a big grin during an interview with CSN Houston's Julia Morales. He attended the game with his 6-year-old son Levi, and topped off his retro bag with a white T-shirt, khaki pants, a baseball cap and sunglasses.

"I'm not afraid of the fanny pack. You gotta kinda put it on the side to make it look a little not as nerdy, but still, practicality wins out," the Dallas Buyers Club actor said. "I got so much gear in here that I don't want in my pockets."

You know what, how many times have you been around someone and they're like, 'Aw, man, I forgot so and so and I gotta go back to my car.'" Pretending to take something out of his hip pouch, he added: "I got mine right here."







I couldn't agree more, Pal. That is SO TRUE.

And I do want to go on record and state that it was me who very probably single-free-handedly started this trend:

It's funny, I just read last night in Style magazine that the Fanny Pack is making a comeback. They had a picture of Nicole Richie wearing one. Of course, now it's about choosing the right fabric for it.

Youre goofy. I use this one so I can duck under brush when I'm hunting. It doesn't catch like a backpack does. https://www.bigwoodsbucks.com/Products/tabid/69/ctl/ProductDetails/mid/442/ProductID/15/Default.aspx

I took your fashion advice, Kady, and wore a fanny pack to the convention. You failed to show up for some trumped up dramatic reason and left me high and dry. Judging from the looks and comments I got, no one got the fanny-packs-are-on-their-way-back-in memo. -Kim
