    My opinion is that whoever 'created' such a thing should be severely whipped (he probably is by his wife all the time).:twisted:

    I personally dread man bags, I think even Beckham here looks like hes started swining both ways :D

    I just think you kind of lose some of your "manly" hood if your walking around with a bag like that, Laptop bag I guess is absolutley fine but the type you wear over your shoulder like that I think they look stupid but then thats just my honest opinion.

    Get a standard backpack mate :biggrin

    I think they are extremely useful, and have 5 myself. I put keys, wallet, books, gloves, etc in them to save bulking out coat or trouser pockets.

    Well, we've all got a pair but I'm not really comfortable with the question to be honest.

    damn you.... my boss is unlikely to ever show that level of appreciation.

    Think Jonny summed it up fairly well

    Keep your man bags out of my sight, I'm not that kinda guy.

    Depends on what I am taking to work. If it is just some study notes and my lunch then I will go with a courier style bag, if laptops are involved then outcomes the backpack.

    Bags for men are just wrong. About as wrong as a wrong thing can be. If you;re carrying enough that you can't fit it all in your pockets (all men should wear clothing with at least six pockets in total), it;s time to buy a sports bag or rucksack. If you walk around with a record bag, satchel, man bag or anything like it - send me all of your Man Cards as you are no longer worthy of them.

    Thanks mate, thought I better step the old style up a notch seeing as I'll be the new kid in town on my next job.

    I PMSL when I read that. Ah don't be like that mate, you'll be telling me getting the odd bit of waxing done is bad next . . . . . . . :twisted: Now you seem like a man who's not timorous of a back sack and crack :biggrin

    I've got a rucksack too Zeb, but my wife tells me it doesn't look as trendy as a Bench bag... and I must believe her. I won't leave home without my man bag now. My current favourite is my River Island one, complete with zip pouch for wallet and mobile phone holder. 8)

    One of the guys in work got one and he got hammered for it. Basically he walked into the office and then my boss clocked him and went into fits of laughter. After that everyone came out of their offices and starting laughing as well....

    The man bag ended up in the skip!!

    Up to you mate but make sure you are ready for some “comments” from your workmates! :biggrin
