Embrace your inner ‘Dwayne’ and celebrate ‘International Fanny-Pack Day!’
That’s right, it’s time to pull out your fanny-packs, bum-bags, belt-bags, waist-packs… whatever you wanna call ‘em, because this Saturday, March 12 is International Fanny-Pack Day. Ain’t no shame wearing one at any time of the year… just look to The Rock and Joey Tribbiani to boost your confidence… but, if there was ever a time to strap on this super handy design, it’s this weekend!
The creator of International Fanny Pack Day is a guy named Nick Yates and it’s been going since 2007. The inspiration came from a random encounter he had with a homeless man after a Christmas party. During the party, he got given a fruitcake and a fanny-pack as gag gifts. He must’ve been rather chuffed as he strapped on the fanny-pack and put the fruitcake inside, then headed home.
On his way to the bus stop, he was heckled about the fanny-pack, by a homeless man. Yates handed the man the fruitcake and carried on. An idea came to his mind; what if there was a way to combine the fanny-pack with feeding the hungry? And so, he reached out to food banks to get the ball rolling. He and others would go on to hand out food while wearing fanny-packs; a craze that’s been followed in over seven countries. Do a bit of a Google and
see if you can get involved somehow…
At the very least, use the opportunity to sport a classic 80’s fashion fad! Don’t have one, or can’t find it at the back of your closet? No stress. We’ve got you covered here at West Bros.
Take a load of the Adidas Essential Crossbody Bag, that’s built to be worn in two different ways. Its versatile design easily adjusts to wear across the body or around the waist like the afore-mentioned legends do! The strap is adjustable for an easy fit, and two separate zip pockets keep everything within easy reach. Being black-and-white means you can pair it with just about anything. Speaking of, how about you match it with one of our new Adidas
