There is a growing trend in men's fashion, the handbag. It goes by many names: the man-bag, the murse. It is a cross between a backpack and a briefcase that looks very much like a pocketbook. They have been big in Europe for quite some time. Who can forget Jerry Seinfeld's exclamation, "It's European."



Guys have their cell phones, BlackBerries, wallets, checkbooks, sunglasses, body spray, you name it. And the 21st century guy wants to put it somewhere special.

"Once you are out in the work world, do you really want to be carrying a backpack when you are wearing a suit?" says Adam Rapoport, the style editor at GQ Magazine. "At the same time, most guys don't want to be like their dads and carry a briefcase."


Hence, the man-bag, like the one carried by 36-year-old Carlo Vogel. I met Vogel in Central Park, where he carried his man-bag with pride. Inside were two cell phones, a camera, money and cigarettes (Vogel rolls his own).

Guys have their...
cell phones... Um, pocket.
BlackBerries... Not me.
wallets... See cell phones.
checkbooks... Who the hell carries a checkbook around?
sunglasses... Wait, I'm sensing a trend here. Metrosexuals don't have pockets at all, do they?
body spray... WTF....just WTF.
you name it. Okay, I will. They ignored the pocketknife.
And the 21st century guy wants to put it somewhere special.
Don't care how special it looks to him, I'm still not bending over to pick up his dropped murse.

I bet Eric Warfield has one..........is this just more of the trend that started with the really gay fad of "fanny packs".

Only to my office each day. In my field, the technology is always updating or upgrading and I have to continuously learn on the job, so I have a lot of paperwork- plus I carry my cell and CD's to listen to at the office.

I have a handy checkbook that fits in my wallet. It's called a credit card.

I have one of those big wallets that my checkbook fits into. It fits in my back pocket. My cell phone fits in my front pocket with my keys. I wear my sunglasses or hang them from the neck hole of my shirt. I have a cigarette case that I put my roll-your-own cigarettes in. It goes in the other front pocket with my lighter. Body spray? WTF? I put on my Old Spice deodorant after I shower and I leave it in the bathroom. What a bunch of fags.

I didn't know you could just carry joints in your front pocket like that, I think I'll try that.

Sure you can. They only cost around ten bucks with a nice design or you can get 'em free when you buy flavored Camels.

Well, I would never call it a purse but I do have a bag for the very rare occasions that I want to carry more than a pocketfull and less than a backpack. It's pretty similar to the bag that David Carradine carried in the "Kung Fu" series.
