The Man Bag: It’s as Handy as it is Becoming

Who can forget the classic Friends episode where Joey discovers both the stylish allure and unmatched functionality of the Man Bag.  Over a decade later, American men continue to struggle with their masculinity and more often than not clump the Man Bag in the same category as messenger bags, satchels and rucksacks.  There’s a big difference, and the classic messenger bag is the perfect example.

David Beckham highlights how the brown leather messenger bag is both versatile and classy enough for the businessman on the move (ponytail optional).  I have no idea why Beckham’s bag is completely empty in this picture, but it’s roomy enough to fit his balls (soccer). Consider the J Crew Artisan Leather Messenger Bag – $225 at Jcrew.com – Although a bit on the expensive side, it’s a worthy investment, it will never go out of style, and it provides the perfect glove for your beloved Macbook.

Hugh Jackman takes the opposite tack: a more refined black leather messenger bag plays perfectly against his more casual attire.  Try the Tumbled Leather Messenger Bag – $198 at Bananarepublic.com

John Mayer underscores the biggest fashion trap that continues to befuddle men young and old: You don’t have to match everything!  It’s a wonderful canvas messenger bag that no doubt contains racy and lurid pictures of former flame Jennifer Aniston.  Unfortunately, it’s hard to let your imagination run wild because John was compelled to wear matching suede shoes and watch band.  Sunwashed Canvas messenger Bag – $55 at llbean.com

Celebrity Copycat: Jennifer Aniston

A bit pricier than my usual Copycat post but I really liked Jennifer Aniston’s look and I think it’s a style that will be around for a while (especially in the color gray).  I don’t usually make a habit of buying dresses at this price online, but a J.Crew maxi dress ( or a long A Lined Hem as they describe it) is a hard one to pass up!

John Mayer With Elmo

I don’t know who’s cuter, Elmo or John? Who cares I’ll take them both!
“Of all the highlights in my career, I don’t know of one more sentimental than getting to walk through Sesame Street,” Mayer, 31, writes on his blog. “Yes, there seems to be somebody always standing right below Elmo and his friends, mouthing along to everything they’re saying, but somehow I’m too filled with wonder to ever look at them. When you make contact with those big beautiful eyes, you’re done. Five years old again. Life is good.”

The segment will air April 1 on PBS.
