Fun with purses

You may have noticed the striking handbag the suited gentleman was wearing in my last post. No? Huge, Chanel?

The other day on the train I sat next to a man carrying a Cole Haan village satchel in lavender. It was kind of amazing in that he was otherwise dressed kind of casually in jeans and a polo shirt. He did have on some pretty amazing white suede loafers though.

What do you think of men making the cross over from murse/man-bag to full out purse?

good for him! i've never understood how men did it without purses, because i can't seen to find one BIG enough to hold all of the things i need to carry about town (umbrella, flip flops/band-aids, 12-pack of Bass, my cat, the usual...). murses are practical, and it's time for men to realize that!

I recently saw, in the same day, TWO gentlemen carrying Louis Vuitton bags. Granted, they were bigger, satchel-sized bags (one looked like a laptop bag), but they were covered in that classic LV print. They were OWNING it.

My boyfriend carries a murse. It's rugged, but he's proud of it.
