Skip to comments.With all the stuff a guy needs to carry, has the man purse's time arrived?

Stuff has spent the long summer shoved miserably in the pockets of my blue jeans and khakis.
Stuff like my wallet. It presses against my backside when I sit. My keys scratch my thighs with every step. When my reading glasses or sunglasses aren't clattering to the ground, they are hooked through the top of my shirt; if I cross my arms with abandon, I could break the frames. My iPhone tugs me down, and if I'm sitting when it chirps, I panic: How will I fish it out of my pocket in time?
As we approach September, with every hint of chilled air I dream of jackets. Jackets have pockets in the lining for a wallet or cellphone, and side pockets for keys and earbuds and little slips of pockets on the chest that are perfect for glasses.
Jackets have space for all of this stuff that has become part of my daily armor, stuff I didn't used to own, like an iPhone and earbuds and reading glasses.
But maybe I and you too, dude should be thinking about more than blazers and sport coats and ski parkas.
Bags. Maybe it's finally time for men to start carrying them. And not just to work. A bag to the coffee shop. To the bar. To the ballgame and the cage-fighting extravaganza and a bag to the monster truck show.
You know, guy bags.
"Just don't call it a 'man purse,' " said Courtney Colavita, fashion editor for Details magazine. "Don't approach it as fashion for guys. Approach it as making your life easier. Even if you wear a blazer in the winter, there is a risk. It could get weighed down. I embrace a bag for guys."

Good grief! Whats next, bras for guys? Oh, wait I think guys in KA are starting to wear those.
tactical bag stuffed with tactical bacon!
This is why God invented cargo pants.
> has the man purses time arrived?
Maybe for metrosexual girlie men like 0bama.
Not for this guy.
Backpack is pushing it for me. Makes me look too much like the earringed, pony-tailed, toungue-pierced Leftists.
Nope. I think something like a shoulder holster would be cool.
The looney left has done all they can to femminize men. They’ve had a lot of success, if the kids I see are any indication.
Man purses may become accepted, but never by me. Sorry, I’m old school, and someone carrying a man purse, or wearing a fanny pack, (a blast from the 80s), is on the queer side of metrosexual.
Cargo pants are my choice.
And, take off those girly Crocs & cloggs while you're at it.
Get a good fishing vest. They’re all about pockets.
My truck comes to mind.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
