Fellow Bihn Addicts, I come to you to help me with a problem.
I strongly believe that I need a man bag (or man purse, or murse) for use on a regular basis to carry my day-to-day stuff. I have no issues with carrying one, but my wife and teenage daughter firmly disagree. They claim that most man-bags are too feminine and purse-ey.
I have tried my ID, which I love dearly and serves me well as my work briefcase... but it's a might too big for day trips when you just need the basics (phone, sunglasses, sketchbook, maybe a water bottle, and assorted sundries). I would love to get your thoughts on an appropriate bag for these occasions, and a color scheme that I can convince my ladies passes the "manly" test.
We did order a small cafe bag in black at one point, but my wife felt it looked too much like a purse. I have heard differently about the larger cafe bags, though... and I have seen some recent pics of the Imago that look sharp.
Any thoughts or recommendations? Any suggestions (or moral support) would be appreciated!
