There used to be a famous theory that once a man finally settles down, and has a child, there is little or no need for him to worry about maintaining his physique. This type of man then earns a new look that proves that he is a family man, this “physique” is basically him developing a round, protruding tummy. One that doesn’t necessary spell out unhealthy but one that was believed to distinguish the “boys” from the “men”.
In Africa a man’s protruding tummy is signified as a sign of wealth and also the presence of a good wife who is taking good care of her husband. But over the years, men all over the world have continued to trade in their “Dad bod” for the “hot bod”, leaving the Dad bod to gradually go into extinction. Maybe not extinction, but there aren’t a lot of dad bods out there anymore.
If you are concerned about being healthy, and maintain your figure, but still find yourself occasionally wishing you had the soft protruding muffin top, your prayers have been answered.
Albert Pukies, a London based designer, has created fanny packs that perfectly imitate the “dad bod”. The dad bod fanny pack is designed just like real life pot bellies; it comes in different skin shades, shapes, sizes, and different levels of hairiness.
The Fanny packs are not yet out, but the designer is “looking for partners and hopes to go on sale before Christmas”.
As weird as the dad bod may seem, we think it will be a favorite when it hits the market. It would have been a really cool Halloween costume, too bad it wont be out till December. Do you think the dad bag fanny pack will be a hit or a fashion no no, leave your comments and get the conversation started.
