Maybe the image of a ’90s Dwayne Johnson wearing his black shirt, denim jeans, and fanny pack will always resurface upon the mention of the long-debated fashion accessory, but our shared laughs won’t mean mockery of the bag any more than it will be because the photo epitomizes the peak of the fanny pack craze before it was reduced to a fashion faux pas.
