Knowing how to rock a man purse means you are confident. You can carry all the stuff you’d like to have with you and still look like a guy’s guy. Women will react positively to your man bag, because it makes you look European, cosmopolitan and modern. You’ll like rocking your man purse, sometimes called a “murse,” because you can carry your gear in it.
- Choose a masculine style and size for your man purse. Your murse should be smaller than a briefcase, but not as small as a woman’s bag. Look for one that is approximately ten inches by ten inches. Look for a plain, neutral colored, basic style in a matte finish with square corners. The strap should be about two inches wide. Ignore man purses in loud colors, that are shiny or that feature flashy gold or silver buckles.
- Choose a well-made bag of quality materials. Look inside the man purse to be sure it’s lined. It should have a compartment for your cell phone, and have some inside pockets and compartments. Your man purse can be of a synthetic material, but never fake leather. Smell it to be sure. If it smells like real leather, it is.
- Pack it. Carry your electronics, like an MP3 player, your camera, and your phone, in your man purse. Put in some tissues, sun block and lip balm. Bring a snack along. Put your wallet and keys inside.
- Project confidence when you rock your man purse. The bag is a smart, modern, utilitarian accessory. That’s all. So, don’t worry about what anybody else thinks.
