It’s not a man purse, it’s a satchel. Indiana Jones has one!

The man bag trend is bigger than ever and is becoming more popular as time goes by. We have to look past the stereotypical alpha male ideas that only women carry bags and purses; it’s more often now that I see a guy rocking a ‘murse’ while the lady he’s with is asking him to carry her stuff; oh how the tables have turned. Truth be told, a guy can look sharp and sophisticated if he can sport it with comfort and confidence.

Famous protagonists like Indiana Jones, Dexter Morgan, and MacGyver to name a few of our favourite characters wielded around man bags while fighting evil and saving the world. Now in a more urbanised culture men are becoming more in tune with their metro sexuality and embracing the uniquely satisfying possibility of become more organized, and doing it with style.  The idea is to make something versatile for the average male and something very accessible. In the past man bags were only used to carry overnight things, or to go to the gym and for vacationing. Men’s bags range from overnight bags, duffels, satchels, and sleek laptop bags to totes and tablet bags and believe it or not, clutches; and men are using them for just about whatever they can stuff in them.

It was a slow socially acceptable transition for men but as fashion trends are in perpetual change, bags are match just about any outfit a man can possibly wear.

I say the ‘murse’ is a necessary trend and I commend each and every guy that has the balls to show them off.  It truly shows that today’s man wants to create an image rather than follow; although oddly enough sometimes all it takes is that one individual to break the mold and the trend catches like wild fire.
