First of all, if you don’t watch Seinfeld (and no, I don’t, my dad is just a fanatic), check out this video for further reference.
Please note that this post is chock full of sarcasm. Thank you, and have a nice day.
In the U.S., if you’re a man, you carry a wallet. In your back pocket. That’s the only manly way to do it. Women have purses; men have pockets. All your junk should fit in your pockets (keys, wallet, cell phone), and if it doesn’t, well…tough luck, man. There’s no way you’re carrying a purse. Exceptions can be made for the following items: briefcases if you’re a high powered businessman, messenger bags if you’re a hipster college student, backpacks for all other types of students in high school or college. That’s it. You mustn’t ever (ever!!) wear the dreaded European Carry All, otherwise known as the man purse.
Men (of the U.S.), just don’t do it. Don’t even try to get off with that excuse, “It’s big in Europe.” So what?! So are scarves, and you’re not about to go putting this on, are you?
I mentioned in a previous post that my boyfriend has one and I advised him to wear it in the U.S. I may take that back and, yes, blackmail has been involved, why do you ask? I thought I’d ask him to model it for you all so you can opine as well – yay or nay on the Euro boy purse?
