The word “murse” has become part of many vocabularies as of recent, of course referring to the “man purse“.

What happened? Was it just that men got fed up with how much shi*t they have to carry?

Perhaps it’s a natural trend coinciding with the more effeminate style many young urban men are accepting these days?

Of course, if you are not quite a murse guy, you could stick to stashing your things into a backpack.

From the runways to the streets, updates to the traditional backpack are a big trend for fall 2009.

Instead of the boyish casual backpacks that you would carry textbooks in, you can pick up more modern, sleek and fashionable ones. New looks include technical fabrics, glossy metallic finishes, and more rugged worn-in leather or canvas.

Men – where do you carry your cell phones, iPods, keys, etc.?

I know a lot of females out there are familiar with male friends asking “can I put this in your purse?” (referring to car keys or whatever they don’t want to be burdened with while partying at a club).

I wonder if we’ll be able to turn the tables one day ladies…
