Is it ok for a man to carry a sophisticated leather bag such as the ones from Prada and Louis Vuitton below? Or is just a tad too similar to a woman's purse?

My rule of thumb is: if your pockets are not enough, you are carrying too much stuff with you.Originally Posted by WN2
I agree. While I am never without a clutch-type "man bag," the bags in those photos seem far too large. The whole point of a bag is to unencumber (sp?). A clutch that can hang from my wrist when I need both hands does that. A big bag like those wouldn't.I always have on my person three pairs of glasses, two checkbooks, my car key with the bulky door opener, my office keys, my home keys, a pocket knife, a coin purse, business cards and a few photos, and, yes, I do like to carry man's clutch bag--a "murse" if you want to be smarty. The one I currently have is made by Coach. I don't really know how I would function without something like that.
The Hermes Birkins women are carrying around are not really purses, they are saddle bags.Originally Posted by summej2
