    The Man-Purse!

    It's time to continue the summer series of lame threads, by me!

    This time, the topic of MAN-PURSE! a.k.a. man-bag or the murse.

    From what I read, this style originated from Europe for professional males who needed more something to carry all their stuff (cell phone, wallet, PDAs, deodorant, and so on). Supposedly they do not want to carry a backpack while wearing a suit, and think it's too "oldie" to carry a briefcase.

    I'm not sure if it's still around here in the US but for a while last year I do notice more guys carrying a bag like that. I had a friend who did that actually.
    -----------------------
    So a few questions for discussion:

    1) Guys, what do you think about man-purses?? Hot, not? Yay, nay?

    2) And ladies, what do you think about it?? What if your husband or boyfriend had one?

    Feel free to add anything, and let's not be too serious.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    I don't think they're hot. I prefer them to wear a backpack seriously but I guess a suitcase is ok...but that's as far as I'll go. If my bf/husband had one I would probably sneak in at night and throw it away..xD
    Yeah, Bye.

    Native American men and women carry a possibles pouch it is for whatever you could possibly need. I see nothing wrong with men carrying a pouch<sound better than purse, dontcha think?> Today's man has to carry just as many things as a woman does. and he needs something to carry them in. a leather pouch that rides across the shoulders would be a good idea.

    Hmm.. I don't find them overly fashionable, they don't bother me though. I'm fairly indifferent to them honestly. If my boyfriend wanted to use one I wouldn't mind, If he's cool with go for it.

    This thread is funny. While I would much prefer to see my guy with a backpack... I would take a "man-purse" over something like a fanny pack... Ugh. Those are awful. Besides there are some semi-fashoinable designs when it comes to bags for men.

    well, from what ive seen of them, they tend to get in the way, and dont look all that good,.

    but they are perfect for those with a "functional over fashionable" mentality. plus they are comfy to wear, if you dont have too much stuff.

    as a matter of fact, recently a classmate of mine made a movie about a certain teacher with a man purse. It definately gets the point across.

    YouTube - Checkmate - Part 2 of 3 05:02 is the scene in question

    and as a little bonus, at 00:30 is me!
    Why hello there!

    Re: The Man-Purse!

    lol when I first saw 'man-purse' I thought of those fanny pack things Peach was talking about LOL. Hell no for the fanny pack xD, I don't know, it just looks wierd, I rather carry his junk in my hand bag then have him wear a fanny pack when he's out with me.

    'Man-purse', in which I didn't even realise they were called that (Always just presumed they were a bag of some sort lol). I don't mind - I see guys use them all the time here, in fact they are really common. I can handle walking around with a guy who is carrying a 'man-purse'. I've seen some pretty groovey ones too
