While I admit that I don’t quite “fit in” here when it comes to fashion, I do enjoy checking out the trends. What’s different than the US? Overall, men dress in more tailored gear here in Europe. They often wear dark skinny jeans, tees, and man scarfs. They rarely ever wear baggy clothing, polo shirts, any logo gear, or athletic shoes / clothing in public.
Today, we are going to explore the fashion phenomenon of the “man bag”.
Man bags come in many shapes and sizes. They are prevalent across Europe. Sometimes they are large, for carrying gym clothes and other odds and ends, and sometimes they are small, more like a purse, or as I like to call it, a “murse”.
Here are a few shots from day-to-day life in Europe so you can get an idea of the variety:
If you have a man bag, what do you carry in it? If you don’t have one, what would you carry?
I always wished I got a picture of the buff body builder man who would wear a fanny pack while walking his Shih Tzu. It was highly comical to watch. He went out around the same time I would be sitting waiting for my tram transfer.
