Man Purse

Because guys need a place to put their things, too… :-)



It is a well-known fact that most men in Tokyo are as fashionable as the ladies. That includes clothing, hairstyle and purse… I mean bag.

It may be odd in some other parts of the world, but that’s the norm here.

Function-wise, the biggest advantage of using “man purse” is the ease to handle when commuting on a packed train. It beats sling/messenger bag, backpack and briefcase hands down.



Me? No, I don’t use this kind of bag.

Why? Because my camera won’t fit in there.

    • Me too… :D… well, it depends on how many things that I carry that day, though. Sometimes I prefer backpack.
