    They had gone out of fashion:confused:

    Put some crackers in there. Some bandaids, maybe some alergy medicines and your inhaler :p

    No they're not. The only people that will ever wear them in any serious numbers are the yanks.

    "Oh no"? I like these things, they're pretty practical.
    Although mine isn't polka.

    In America, they call them fanny packs dont they :lol:

    found it quite funny explaining to the american camp counsellors what fanny pack actually means in england.

    I didn't know anybody wore them over the age of 50 but now that they're in Topshop im sure a few people will be sporting them...maybe at festivals. I wont be buying one.

    I repeat: What's wrong with these bags? Do you think I should stuff my pockets with lots of stuff instead? Or that I should not carry with me things that I want to?

    That's a matter of opinion, I happen to like them.
    But even so: Suggest an alternative.

    Exactly. If every fashion victim in the world goes any buys one then they'll be back. Give it a few weeks... :eek2:

    I'm sorry to sound rude, but are you a female in her late teens or 20s? If not, then I don't really think this thread is aimed at you. Topshop are selling them, so they're definately aimed at a niche market, rather than your average tourist.

    Fair point, I don't really know who each shop is aimed at. :p

    My point was that they're far more practical than stuffing your pockets or (for me at least) carrying a bag, so they should be OK. I hate it when people choose what looks better over what works better.

    :lol: yeah. I was thinking the other day, along those lines, the chocolate company Fannie May probably wouldn't be much of a prosperous business over there, would it :p

    Mine was Mickey Mouse. Jealous of the turtles, tbh.

    Incidentally, I always got the Mickey stuff, and my sister got Minnie; I think my parents always knew how I would turn out...
