Man purse/clutch

So off and on for the past 2 years my husband had this idea about a "man purse" Last night as usual we were both watching late prime time, reading our Ipads, when he leans over and says "What do you think of this" It was a beautiful clutch, He was like "its $200 dollars, but since you pay that much for your bags, I figure I will indulge"....

Long story short, it wasn't for me.....It was a Man Clutch. So am I just behind on the times, is the "cool" or "couture" what the heck, I just can't imagine seeing this very manly man, carrying a clutch, or purse. Not a messenger bag ladies, a purse. So what are your thoughts?? Or do you have a husband or SO that has one?

I would never wrong my husband for carrying a man purse, I just thinks its a little wierd. But then mabey I need to get with it...

They aren't new and I don't know anyone that carries them, but I have seen other men carry them.  My SO refers to them as murses (man-purses).  They actually talked about them on Seinfeld years ago!

Its not new but my husband would sooner hack off his own arm than carry something like that. He doesn't even like to hold MY purse. And I have very pretty purses,lol.

I wouldn't be okay with it. It would just be too odd for me to be with a man who carried a purse. I don't even carry a purse (or a clutch).

My dad has a murse, lol. He loves it. he always has a ton of crap with him and his laptop bag is too big. I wouldn't care if DH got one, then I wouldn't be asked to put his shit in my purse.

I like a rough and tumble kinda guy so no. I would not like my guy carrying a man purse. That's just weird. I'm going to be the pretty one with the accessories. Not my guy.

I personally think it is hilarious! My husband carries a backpack sometimes when he needs to carry stuff to work. I don't understand what men have to carry that would require a purse. We he makeup, lipstick/chapsticks, hair brushes, calendars, plus the kids' 50 million things. What do guys put in their purses? I don't want to step on anyone's toes, but I'd rather my DH did NOT carry a man purse. I think I might be embarrassed (that's just me).

To me it is embarrassing, I am just imagining walking up to my dads house with that purse in his hands. Or walking into the store.  I just don't think he cares. And he doesn't carry anything , he doesnt even carry cash. Just cards,   My mother got him an engraved gold plated wallet for Christmas..he gave it to our son.

I only have wallet, keys, and s cell phone in mine. Maybe a few bills that need to be paid... but those are all things a guy could use a "murse" for to. I think if a guy wants one its his choice not mine.
