There's nothing manly about a man-purse

But on occasion, you do need a bag for various reasons; such as a day at the beach or off to a weekender away from it all. In that case, I highly suggest you pick up a decent flight bag. These used to be passed out like candy during the 50's and 60's from every airline there was. Do you want to look like a metrosexual courier? Or would you rather look like a man about town that's on the move? Rock stars carried them, movie stars carried them, why even Williams carried one on Enter the Dragon right before he karate chopped the cops, and how cool was he? Here's the best news, these are readily available on eBay for fairly cheap and you can have choices of airlines, also there is a website for an outfit called Inretro that makes new ones if that's your bag. Of course, I am a fan of the BOAC bags, but the TWA and PAN AM ones are looking pretty cool as well. With so many options, you can pick and choose to your liking. Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying to carry one of these all the time, as no man should carry that much with him every day, but if you do have that special occasion, here's a cheap  and infinitely cooler alternative to the man purse.

P.s. In case you wanted to have a look......
