While enjoying libations in Cancun, we saw European men proudly wearing their “man purses”. They smugly flaunted their Euro-style, proudly wearing their purse and colorful, sized-too-small replica soccer jerseys (futbol if you’re one of them). In their minds, they looked good…..damn good. A few of them saw us stare. We were thinking, “really?” They were thinking “I’m so sexy I can even wear a purse”. I suppose it might make practical sense for a guy to carry his own crap around in a purse but then I thought, “isn’t that what a wife is for?” Who knows, maybe their faux alligator-skinned Louis Vuitton man purses were filled with cigars, tequila, rattlesnake antivenom and a 9mm. I doubt it. Probably hair gel.
After a few more rounds of liquid creativity the idea of The Original Manbag was born. An American slant to an international accessory.
