    If you need one to touch up your lipstick in public then rock on dude!

    I say NO! Any look that requires so much fiddling with that you can't get the job done during an occasional visit to the toilet is too fussy! :slapfight:

    There is a clue in the name Vanity mirror...

    If you're that vain you can 't wait to have a look at yourself even if many mirrors are available around us (car ,toilets and so on), you deserve to carry one on you.

    but there are many uses, to check your teeth after a copious business lunch, to remove some food from lips... to make sure nose is clean before an important meeting and so on.
    nobody will be on the side of reason?

    You point out some legit reasons with the teeth and nose and all. But reason or not, you're gonna have people looking at you funny. Plus you can do that stuff in the restroom after you eat. Dudes checkin themselves with vanity mirrors just seems wrong.

    It is not something is useful in certain conditionsd ,it is making acceptable to others..

    I suffer from pruritus ani, is it ok to have an arse mirror?

    On a more serious note , mirrors for men are plain wrong like men bags...
