I spent two weeks in Atlanta with my parents over the holidays, and although there are a million great things about visiting them, one of the greatest is their incredible cable package.

Man bags are always one of the most controversial topics we tackle here. Some women don’t want their men wearing any kind of bag, and some men would never be caught dead carrying one either; usually, the arguments from both of those groups is that there’s something inherently feminine about having a bag with you.

Oh Man Bag Monday, we have left your category so under-loved the past few weeks. I promise it was not purposeful, it just…happened. But we are back and giving the men who read PurseBlog and the ladies who shop for their men who don’t read PurseBlog our suggestion for a bag this Monday.

I know what you guys are thinking. It wasn’t all that long ago that we featured another Mulberry holdall for Man Bag Monday and we try to keep things diverse around here, but when a single brand is performing so well, it’s hard to spread the praise around.

Ok, so this post a little last minute for a Father’s Day gift idea but honestly, I know many of you may be like me and procrastinate. When it comes to both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, I always try to find a gift that can be sentimental.

The start out Couture Week signals the end of men’s Fall 2011 presentations, and since we are nowhere near as obsessed with manbags as we are with those carried by women, we thought it best to defer to the experts at GQ France to pick the best men’s accessories of the just-finished runway shows.

We don’t often write about men’s accessories in these parts, but the manbags (and gloves and belts and sunglasses and shoes…) that just debuted in Paris for Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 are too good to pass up.

What’s a man with a sense of style supposed to do for a carry-on? Often, men’s designer bags either skew too Ed Hardy or too feminine, and the task of finding one that’s luxurious, stylish and still a bit masculine is a bit more difficult than you think.

Can I just tell you all that this picture made me want to run over to Bottega Veneta and buy every single wallet shown?! The kaleidoscope of colors and materials makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop.
