Don't really layer.

If it's going to be colder I have either a light jacket, seat shirt, or a sport coat depending on occasion. I'm not really going to stuff them in my murse anyway, too big. I don't carry changes of clothes with me or sun screen. I don't do my grooming in public bathroooms so I don't need to carry my shaving bag, nail clippers, toothbrush. All of that is stuff I might take on a weekend trip though. Gym bag!

It looks effeminate. That's all. It just looks effeminate.

I seriously think America is so far behind the rest of the world when it comes to these kind of things, and I'm getting a bit annoyed at how ignorant and rude some of the people here can be.
Im curious, what does your wife say about your wanting to walk around with clutches and such? I ask because I checked your posting history and you mentioned your wife in a few threads you started. Are you still married? What does she say about it? My wife would think I was crazy and out of my mind if I said anything about walking around with a clutch/bag for fashion purposes.

A specialty made bag to carry a handgun is acceptable. A specialty made fashion bag is NOT.

Yes, slung over the shoulder looks fine.....carrying the way a woman would carry a handbag definitely looks effeminate.

That's just my opinion, and other people's perceptions should matter very little to OP if he wants to carry around a tote bag in any way that he wants.

OP specifically said TOTE, not CLUTCH. And a bag is only acceptable if it's holding a gun? SMDH.

Pardon me Mr. Schreiber ... is there a gun in your bag? Because if not, according the rules declared on CD, I'm afraid I must declare you gay. I hope your wife won't mind.

Go back and read again my friend. He said CLUTCH!! When I talk about a bag with a gun, I am SPECIFICALLY talking about a holster or an item SPECIFICALLY made for Second Amendment concealed carry carry. Just as other posters have said, only time a MAN needs something like that is for his concealed carry.

Also, its funny how you cherry picked that ONE pic from the article on "Man bags". LMAO. Why didnt you post the other pics from that article I wonder? http://www.menstylefashion.com/man-b...o-clutch-onto/ Hmmmmmm. OK, I'll post a couple for you:







So cute. Which one do you step out on the town with?

Default Really

I don't have a need for carrying stuff on a daily basis. Plus it throws my back out. So, I generally only carry a briefcase if I am going someplace that I need to bring stuff to that necessitates bringing a bag, e.g., court, client meeting, etc.

"What's wrong with guys carrying tote bags?"

Nothing, but they can lead to lower back pain. If you have to carry that much stuff around, it's smarter to wear a backpack.
