The Rise of Man Purses

A little while ago, if you had asked me about man purses, I might have said I wasn't sure about them. But as I was walking down the streets of Taipei, Osaka, Tokyo, Beijing, I observed a large number of men carrying their purses.

I paused for a second. In fashion today, I see designers create masculine (suitcase-like ) bags for women. We wear boyfriend shorts and tuxedos. So, what's so wrong with the men wearing "feminine-like" purses? Answer for me is: as long as the masculinity of the man is obvious, he can carry his purse just anyway he likes. 

I met a tall Japanese guy with a nicely chiseled face in his pink Polo shirt and man purse. A dark green high-quality bag with dark brown leather trimmings. He carried his purse by the hand. He couldn't have looked more masculine!

Even my darling Robert Downey Jnr rocks his man purse.

I prefer Kanye's man bag. Though I must say it works more as carry-on luggage. That's more likely what he rocked it for.
