THE MAN BAG

DNA Magazine - - MANLY PURSUITS -

Hugh Jack­man has a big one. David Beck­ham’s is small. We speak of the mighty murse – the gen­tle­man’s clutch. Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent UK sur­vey, 50 per cent of men now own them. Are they wrong? No. Are they manly? Not es­pe­cially. If we are what we wear (and by ex­ten­sion carry), what does your bag say about you? Ac­cord­ing to Tele­graph fash­ion ace Al­fred Tong, it speaks vol­umes, depend­ing on what type of clutch you tote. If it’s a mod­ern ex­ec­u­tive brief­case, you’re ei­ther “Mr Or­gan­ised” or “Mr Crash­ing-bore”. But if you favour the mes­sen­ger bag to trans­port your wal­let, phone and spare undies, you’re a “cre­ative mid­fielder”.
