Based on the runways and the hipsters of urbania, men seem to a bit more comfortable with having accessories that hang from the shoulders.
The concept of the murse (man bags, or whatever you want to call them) is a wonderful middle ground for brief cases, messenger bags, backpacks and duffel bags. They are perfect for toting around all those necessities you need for a day in the city – wallet, cell phone, iPod, check book, midday snack, Burt Beeswax, Listerine strips, cigarettes, lighter, bottled water, extra pair of socks, passport, 3 forms of identification and for those special occasions – a knife suitable for hunting and skinning. Whatever you can’t live without, I’m sure a murse can handle it. Available in any price range, take a gander at these convenient accessories.
