If he'll carry MY crap in it, he can keep it.

Thumbs down unless a man is gay. Then, thumbs up!

Claire said...

Only thing worse than a man bag is a fanny back. I vote no.

kenju said...

He's eye candy, with or without it.
LOL

It doesn't bother me at all, especially if it is stuffed with money he'll spend on me.

Yes if it`s a modified messenger bag. The clutch version is just too much though. Also, I vote no to men in spray-on jeans. Eww.

zerodoll said...

which bag are we talking about?

egan said...

Ronaldo!!!

Thumbs up for me, but as your commenters are showing, it's not really accepted by many. So I carry a shoulder bag instead like a college student.

In Europe: Thumbs Up.
In the rest of the world: Thumbs Down.

No to the Murse. Even on gay guys it's a bit over the top to me. I work with a guy that carries a Gucci Murse. Way over the top.

Thumbs up but only in Europe...ciao

i think i saw that guy in south beach leaving a gay bar... not that there's anything wrong with that.

thumbs way down.

Thumbs down!
I hate them, but at the same time I do feel sorry for guys, cause they have nowhere to put all the stuff they want to carry. My BF's wallet is falling apart, with all the cards and little papers he has.
Poor guys.

First off, I applaud you for posting about this with a Christiano Ronaldo picture.

I am going to go thumbs up. Keep your wallet out of your pants and not have the imprint of it burn in to your pocket. No more guys walking around giggling with change.

I think it can work. I mean, I'm always amazed at how guys carry blackberries and wallets and whatnot all in their pockets.

But, for the record, I prefer the man to NOT carry it like a clutch. Takes femme to an entirely new level.

Small Backpack or messenger bag, yes. Purse, no. Not even the gayest amongst us can get away with it.

Chica said...

Purely for the fact Ronaldo is carrying it, and he makes me want to vomit, thumbs DOWN! But I think some men could carry it off, like Joey in Friends that time :) Although I agree, maybe not a purse-sized man bag x

Jennifer said...

The man bag is such an oxymoron. Carrying a bag sort of takes the "man" right out of you, IMHO.

A Touch of Dutch said...

I believe this guy would be able to get away with whatever with many. However, if my Dutch husband carried one of these, it would be due to him carrying it for me. Which I would only make him succumb to doing if I had no arms.

Jill said...

I just have to laugh at all the comments about it. Wow are people ever so adamant about it being a thumbs down. I rather think it's admirable that he's comfortable enough in his masculinity to actually use one in public.

I say good on Max... though if he really needed a man purse, couldn't he have just put his items in yours?

Thumbs up.
The fashion idea that men can't carry around a smallish bag to put all their crap in is ridiculously, unfathomably stupid. Let's all step back from fashion for a moment to think about how insane and senseless it is.
Plus, I don't want to carry around my husband's shit. Let him carry it himself, in his own damn bag. There is simply nothing feminine about a bag. I simply do not understand this in any way.

Claire said...

Thumbs up.

Tight jeans so that we can see what God gave him: Thumbs WAY up!

Lise said...

If he comes with the bag, i'll take two!!

I think I prefer the satchel (leather)...to give that kind of bohemian look.

It has to be masculine, not like a purse.
