    Tell us about YSL, bitch!

    hahahah. No one here cares about YSL. But I will.

    YSL:
    Pros: Too fabulous for you.
    Cons: Too fabulous for you.

    But seriously, YSL mens and womens bags are exceptionally well made. Only problems of note are Fall 2008's bubble lambskin leather, which would come undone near the seams. As far as styles go, there are a number of them that would be suitable for both men women, from incredibly 'daring' to chic and sedate. There's an undeniable elegance that transcends trend.

    Do any of you bagwhores have experience with the Filson Rucksack? I'm looking for a stylish backpack (rugged is a bonus) and I think I want it. I apologize for it not really counting as a manbag [​IMG]

    I had one for awhile that I used for carrying stuff around rivers while fishing. Great pack, but I don't think I'd want to use for it everyday use.

    Are the straps as uncomfortable as they look, then? Or was it something else?

    They probably would be if you had lots of stuff in it. I didn't find them to be any trouble though, but I was only carrying < 5-7 lbs of gear and food.

    Ahh, gotcha. Thanks for the advice.

    Real talk? Don't shit up this thread with douchetardism or catty bitchfights, pleez. There are already enough queens around here.

    Sounds like you're the one reacting all catty like I asked a simple question relax.

    See that's the thing, it is the gay guys here and I think totes/handbags look retarded which is why I asked. I wanted to know why they gravitate towards that particular aesthetic in particular which you answered but it's just odd how all the ones here have the exact same mentality (thinking it's stylish and so on). I don't give a shit anymore was trying to get some answers for my buddy who asked me this after lurking the waywt thread and I couldn't find an answer for him.

    It's alright, you can go ahead and say it. You're referring to gosurface's ugly monster purse.

    style-conscious men want nice bags to carry things in, what a shocker

    theory: gay guys tend to be more secure in their sexuality and not worry too much about appearing &quot;effeminate&quot; and therefore don't really connect with the negative connotations of carrying a bag?

    That's pretty obvious but John posted up some tribal lookin shit awhile back and I fail to see how either of them are stylish. I'll just leave it at different strokes.

    All fine and dandy... but it's all just your opinion and your personal preference, unless while I was asleep the Gods of Fashion came down upon a Flaming Pie and anointed you, Herr von Jetskool, Grand High Arbiter of Fashions on teh Interwebz. [​IMG] Anyway, obviously we all just like different stuff. Your "retarded" is another's "must have" bag. The answer to your question, whether you agree with it or find it "stylish" or not... is sound: personal stylistics, lack of concern for public/social opinion, and need to carry stuff. It would be excellent if you could add some info on bags you've owned or liked w/ reviews of the pros and cons. I know you've got some obscure gems hidden somewhere you want to tell us about.

    Btw... today I'm breaking with tradition and carrying a messenger bag (haha), just for jet. He's got me questioning my totebagualism. [​IMG]

    The gays compliment my filson and engineered garments totes a lot, or maybe they're just hitting on me. I don't really know.

    The gays know everything. If they are complementing you on your totes, it means they are awesome.

    I wish man, only bags I've owned was a jas messenger which I'm putting up in the b&s and my olive Ys nylon duffle. Not a fan of the arte povera bags either, but love weekenders and duffels for short trips and what not. Almost copped grey margiela bag two years ago but 1300 was too rich for me. Thinking about copping the white canvas/tan leather ciggy bag but waiting for a good deal. Not many bags interest me because like you said not many are steezy enough.
