The Dos and Don’ts of Man Purses (AKA “Murses”)

Submitted by on October 28, 2010 – 9:58 am6 Comments

If you’re brave enough to carry a “murse,” or man purse, we have a few ways to increase your confidence while doing so.

Our society is simply not used to seeing men carrying them, but there is a way to comfortably stash all of your belongings in these babies without receiving odd stares.

Here are the dos and don’ts of murses:



Lupe Fiasco

Straight up, Lupe looks like he’s carrying a women’s purse. The bright red color and print coupled with the shiny details are begging for attention.


David Beckham

Beckham’s cross-body bag is rugged and simple. Worn towards his behind and paired with a sleek suit, it just works.



Jon Gosselin

I sincerely hope Jon Gosselin is carrying his girl’s purse here, because a flashy metallic silver handbag is not a good look for this man.

Kanye West

Even with the bold tangerine color, Kanye oozes swag with this piece. He looks like he means business.



Tom Brady

As lovely and macho as this NFL player is, the short straps on this murse make it look…questionable.

Kevin Jonas

This Jonas bro’s got the look right, as the long strap gives the murse a tougher look.
