Majority of visitors to both PurseBlog and PurseForum are female. That doesn’t mean we do not have a great number of males who are fashion obsessed visiting our sites as well, and for that, I apologize for the lack of man bags featured here. That is why every Monday we will feature a different man bag, dubbing it Man Bag Monday.

Kicking off Man Bag Monday, I had to turn to Salvatore Ferragamo. The brand is brilliant for both its female and male oriented lines. The design aesthetic is purist and luxurious with every attention to detail and craftsmanship taken into account.

Right now I can’t stop loving the Salvatore Ferragamo Ostrich Messenger Bag. In fact, this is an ideal fashion forward man bag. The messenger style is laid back and casual but the exotic ostrich skin in the perfect tan hue amps up the style into a new realm of casual-cool. Of course this bag is not for every man. But for the right man, it will look nothing but amazing and will end up with me feeling man bag envy. Buy via Salvatore Ferragamo.

    Here in Tokyo we haven’t used austriche material for handbag design so far.. but I think it’s cool!

  • Anja

  • XXAL

  • bentos

    nothing that i can say about this bag, it’s very perfect. but as of mee, i like this bag to be a bit slouchy, without rigid frames. but i really love this a lot and it’s really classic can be used for so many many years and still stay very wonderful.

    Great enhancement to the blog! “Man Bags” are not just for men….there are plenty of designers who have a unisex aesthetic, as I have several “male” bags in my collection. Thanks.

  • edoardo

    The ostrich is an amzing material but here the color is a bit old and th egeneral appearance is not so “chic” and “glmaourous” like an ostrich bag shoul be!

  • edoardo

    I like ostrich leather bu here the color is too old and the appearance is not so chic and glamourous, luxury, like an ostrich bag should be!

  • Chris

    If my husband had this bag, I would totally get it and wear it myself. I actually like the colour, it has a somewhat “worn” look, like it has been travelling already a lot.

  • JW

    Yeah to Man bag Monday…finally we got recognize too…thank you so much!!!

  • Staci

    Megs, this is one fabulous man bag!

  • PhotoGirl

    Very nice! My man would not have his bag for very long because I would steal it from him.

  • Perry Phalla

    Man Bag Monday is a fabulous idea for your male readers. Me. My personal favourite bag is Proenza Schouler’s PS1. Although not a man bag, it is able to target to the male audience with its masculinity.

    Love this new feature! Megs, glad to see that you’re well tuned to your readers. Men’s fashion has been underestimated for ever and this new feature is timely and will attract more traffic to the blog. Great bag, too. Salvatore Ferragamo rarely disappoints.
