  2. I'll take a bag if I'm taking my camera out with me but that's where I usually draw the line. The bag the guy had on the TV this morning wasn't a "man bag", it was a fully fledged girls bag.

    Up here in the North. We've been using man bags for donkeys years.








    They keep your butties clean the way down't pit.

    Man bags are inexcusible, end of.

    If you can't stuff it in your pockets, use a carrier bag.
    Preferably one with ripped handles and an oil mark on the side :biggrin:

    Camera bags, gym bags. fishing bags etc are a completely different issue and are absolutely acceptable :ohmy: :biggrin:

    Variation on a theme.....

    In our gym, theres quite a few "pretty boys" who use the carrier bags of posh mens clothing shops (Top Shop etc. :o)

    Thats just downright wrong I personally think.

    What about if it's made out of the scrotum of an Abyssinian mountain lion?

    Quite a few where I work, they do look a bit ginger beer....

    I go for one of those drawstring bags (Cycle London one in fact, ToB 2006) if I'm carrying my clutter......

    I brazenly carry a rather spiffy brown leather one from Gap; it replaces a briefcase when I'm on my travels for work and is an old and familiar friend. It's capacious enough for a laptop, loads of papers and a sarnie box.

    Some of you must have a very fragile sense of your own masculinity if it can be challenged by the use of a certain type of bag. Not to mention the patent ridiculousness of a group of men who wear lycra tights and shave their legs, mocking the man-bag as an effeminate affectation!

    Man bags.
    Aload of rubbish. Its just a guy wanting a handbag, but wants it to be more manly.
    Whats wrong with a back-pack?
    Top-man is posh, have you seen the price for a pair of jeans, and the people who shop there?
