Paul Smith Mini Car BillfoldMany men love cars but not handbags, man bags, etc. My dad could care less about his wallet or briefcase, as long as they carry his things and do not completely break apart and lose his important papers. Vlad has transformed to appreciating good handbags and loving LV Man Bags. Deep down though, the passion many men have for cars is undeniably larger than their passion for handbags (any of you not like this, let me know!!).

Louis Vuitton Men Holiday Gifts

Shopping for your significant other is not easy if you are a gal. Boys will be boys which makes finding them a perfect holiday gift a very daunting task. Vlad for example loves his Louis Vuitton Taiga Dersou but also thinks he wants a Wii for Christmas. Seriously?! Boys make it hard to shop. Sometimes you have to set your foot down and make your boy a man at the office or look presentable in public, but let him have his toys to play at home.

Lambertson Truex Brown Leather Mail Bag

It has been a while since we have discussed man bags here. I feel a little silly neglecting my man bag duty, especially because that makes me biased and also means I have been neglecting the man, Vlad. Without further ado I must introduce you all to a gorgeous and understated man bag that many of you could most possibly talk your man into wearing.

Louis Vuitton Innsbruck CabasNot all men are LV men, but my man is ;-) The Mr. picked up a gorgeous Louis Vuitton Taiga Dersou recently. LV has released some new man bags for Fall/Winter 06. The Louis Vuitton Innsbruck Cabas is ‘inspired by the chic elegance of the Innsbruck, Austria ski resort at the heart of the Alps’. This bag is made with suede calf leather with grained calf leather trim and has its focal point as the signature geometric V pattern on the exterior.

Jack Spade Bridle Leather Bag

Just 10 years ago the married couple, Kate and Jack, made their last name a household name; Spade. The Jack Spade approach offers men items that represent both honest, thoughtful design and practical purpose. For functionality the men of today need a messenger bag. You all know that the man of the Purse Blog and Forum just indulged in a Louis Vuitton Messenger ;-) If you are opting for a clean and sleek look, the Jack Spade Bridle Leather Bags are perfect for the everyday man.

Louis Vuitton Taiga Dersou

After a day of carrying my new Louis Vuitton Taiga Dersou around New York City, I am confident to say that this is the ultimate man bag. No doubt about it.

Louis Vuitton Taiga Dersou

Its strap is long enough for a comfortable cross-body fit (I am not a small guy at 6’1″, 215lbs…), the inside compartment fits my 17 inch Macbook Pro like it was made for it.

Hugo Boss Havana Canvas Messenger BagAs you may, or may not have noticed, the PurseBlog got a makeover and is now flying its brand-spanking-new summer outfit. Version 3.0 was getting boring to look at, and I’ve finally motivated myself to get the work done to recreate, renovate and redo the ol’ hag. Let me know if you like it! Do I get a cookie now?

Ok, I’ll pass on the cookie.

Paul Smith Triumph Messenger Bag First and foremost Happy Father’s Day to all you amazing daddies out there!! My dad deserves a ton of appreciation and love today- he is amazing. Problem with my dad is that he is impossible to shop for. Designer anything is not his style. I wonder every year what to get him and he ends up with the same thing from everyone in the family, new work shirts and ties and sometimes a new suit.

Louis Vuitton Kasbek PM

If men in this world only realized how sexy it is to carry a sleek designer bag, they may begin to understand us a little better. I find that men don’t want to give off the un-manly vibe, but that doesn’t mean that matching and looking good makes you un-manly? I don’t need a man who wears stripes and checks all at once (cough cough I won’t want to pick on anyone- but a certain someone whose name starts with a V and ends with a lad did that to me about 2 years ago and I nearly got rid of him then!!

Jack Spade Dad Backpack

Man bags are a must. Well in my opinion, they should be. For some reason men just do not want to ever say that they are carrying a ‘man bag’. What is the issue? Why not?! I am not asking you to carry a pink bag, but some bags are just so darn good looking on a man. Jack Spade has decided that man bags are a must, so all you ladies need to convince the men in your lives to nab a man bag.
