Do you love or hate the man purse?

I’m going to be bold here,  I really like the man purse.

It’s true that many are not fans of the man purse, but consider the alternatives for a moment.  Men have either a backpack (or worse, a fanny pack), a briefcase, or their pockets.  The backpack is too casual, usually grubby, and reminds us of school.  The briefcase, while quite stylish and professional, doesn’t go out at night.

What are men supposed to do outside of work?  When we go out, I am constantly asked to carry my husband’s mobile phone in my purse because it doesn’t fit in his pocket.  Well, there’s also his wallet, keys, sunglasses, eyeglasses for going to the movies, etc.

The right man purse can be practical and sophisticated.  For men in my opinion, the bag needs to be the across the shoulder type.  Nothing with handles.  Take for instance these great messenger style bags from Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana.

Maybe I’ve just lived in Italy too long and have an acute overexposure to fashion.  But you know, guys need to carry their stuff around too!  They might as well look good while doing it.
