Papas got a brand new....Briefcase

I stand proud and can admit that I am a metrosexual man (keep it hush hush and please direct your rotten tomatoes elsewhere - ha) whom takes great pleasure in aesthetics whether in fashion or furniture...Indeed furniture, I have been possessed by this peculiar fetish for design classics since I set my eyes upon the Barcelona chair when I was just a wee bubbeleh (Indeed, I must add odd to the list - different is good though? Well I suppose it depends on the level of oddness!). So the Man bag, mehh - sorry I cringe at that very word. Call me old fashioned but I just don't get it. Their are many a men whom are taking it to the next level and are sporting a Balenciaga and even the o so feminine Alexa Mulberry bag (yes you BryanBoy - sorry matey!) What ever floats your boat I guess and who am I to judge - the one that has been known to wear zebra print High tops - I too don't know what I was thinking. My excuse - I was young and naive! However, as men we too need a bag that will hold our action figures and comics - The compromise? I have just the thing, a good old sturdy briefcase. 

What's in your bag....

That is a lovely briefcase...

OK, maybe hate is too strong a word! He was just really rude to me when I was assisting on a shoot he was in. He barely said a word to me, just stood there waiting for me to dress him and then requested for me to tie his shoes when he left, not even for the shoot! Not a nice boy...

I laughed as I read your post and couldn't help but be reminded of the "Friends" episode in which Joey was teased for loving his "man-bag." Do you remember that one? To be honest, I'm a girl who loves her handbags (as you probably could tell from my blog!) and have often felt bad for you guys that don't have the "right" to carry them. That said, there are a few really nice bags designed for men that even women covet. Have you checked out Mulberry's men's line? I like your picks here too.
