    Default Men and their bags....

    Ok, so I know there are men out there who carry "man" bags. That's fine. But one observation I've made living in Japan is many men here carry what is clearly a woman's handbag. I find it very strange and have seen it more times than I can count.

    I took this pic on the train yesterday of a man with a Coach crossbody bag. It's not bad I guess.




    This is ok for a man because it's crossbody in my opinion. I've never been able to take a photo yet of the guys who carry actual handbags. I don't want to seem rude. I snuck those photos yesterday with my cell phone which is why the poor quality.

    But what do you think of men who'd carry a handbag? Weird? Or I am being too judgemental?

    I have a plain black one that is similar to that. I've used it a few times when Im traveling to carry the essentials for the day.

    Normally I carry large totes, briefcases or messenger style bags.

    With what he is wearing, I think it's fine. I wouldn't think anything of it. Now, to see a guy with an actual handbag.... having lived years in LA and NYC you would think I've seen that (I've seen pretty much everything else) but not that.
    Unless you count my husband holding my bags while I try things on.

    This is funny. Most of my guy friends are gay and they carry a lot of Louis Vuitton messager-like bags and briefcases. As for actual handbags, no.
    If love is the answer, what is the question?

    I know this is a woman's bag so my opinion is biased I guess, lol. I just can't help but think that it should be on a girl. I do love your sneaky pictures btw!

    Next time I see a guy with a handbag, I've got to make sure to get a pic so you all know what I'm talking about. Big difference between a man bag/briefcase and a ladies handbag. Maybe they just didn't know? :erm:

    Next time I'll snap the photo and just get away fast! haha.

    In the city I see a lot of men with messanger/ boarderline handbags. I think it's partially gay men. but also straight men too. In japan and parts of asian you see the man purse out a lot.. and they aren't gay.

    Cool spy pics
    I haven't seen any guy with ladies bag and can't imagine DH wearing one. Sometimes he grumbles even when I ask him to hold mine!

    I think the 2nd picture is sorta comical --> guy accessorizes with a feminine purse about to play some football --> then again it just looks like he's just holding his wifes bag.
