Men's Purse is a Fashion Trend that Did Not Trend

Men's purses are a fashion trend that just never caught. I have one husband and five sons. Getting them a wallet as a Christmas gift? No problem. Getting them a purse? Hmm ... eh! ... I don't think so.

Wallet

I have been using the wallet. And it's been a lot of time. And I have no interest in changing to the purse. Because wallet works better. And it can be definitely worth making use in such case for the quick payment and also works with the different proper design for holding the content.

compact

I get that having a purse is possibly more practical, especially these days, because we all have a lot more stuff to bring around as compared to before when all men had to bring around was a wallet and maybe some keys. However, I think having to carry around a small bag is just not that practical especially for men.

I'll always be a wallet guy. I don't like to carry large objects around with me anyways so considering the size of a men's purse compared to a men's wallet, that item just wouldn't suffice.

Men's Wallet

I don't think that ever since I became an adult that I have ever moved out of my house without having my wallet with me. It's very portable and simple to use. I have my men's purse but I hardly use it.

Classy

Men's wallet is classy. I sometimes am a type of person who always want to look good through the clothes I wear. Pairing them up with a classy wallet can add up to my self confidence. Moreover I prefer the use of wallets because they are not bulky in my pocket. They are easy to use and I can get money from it easily.

More slimline

For most guys I know, they put their wallet in their back pocket. A purse looks much more bulky and wouldn't fit as easily in a pocket. For that reason to me the simplicity and slimline nature of a wallet is more desirable.

I really think it is way much cooler for a man to use a wallet than a purse. It is simple yet so classy to see. Also, I appreciate its ability to make a man so handsome. You don't have to worry about bringing too much unimportant stuff as everything that a man will need can be hidden inside him

Men's Purse exists??!

I've never heard of a men's purse before. I thought only women had those. Sure a wallet can't fit everything we have to carry, but holding a purse while you walk? It seems counter intuitive. I'd rather just buy a small messenger bag/cross bag and use it to carry my essentials.

The only thing men should carry is a wallet. I don't mean to be judgemental but guys who have clutch bags look feminine to me. Like if you need to have more stuff in you when you go outside, use a backpack as most straight guys do.

Well, wallets are definitely more practical and stylish than the men's purses. Actually, I have never used a men's purse ever and I don't think I will ever like to use one ever. Purses are meant for girls and women and certainly are more suitable and look good in their hands. Girls have a lot of stuff like makeup kits and other things they need to carry every day with them. Boys usually just carry the money and cards in there wallet which is why a wallet is more practical for them

Well, I think majority of the men that I know prefer to bring their wallet. It's very convenient for them and they will not be burdened by it since it's just easy to put the wallet in their pockets.

Wallet for me

I do most of my transactions using digital wallet in my phone plus my cards. So I do not feel the need for a spacious purse. Just a right amount of bills and change, and I am good to go. Keys on belt and phone on my pocket.

norm

I think men are more used to having a wallet for their cash rather than a purse. I haven't seen any of my male friends carry a purse before. I saw my uncle with what looked like a leather purse but he uses it to put his toiletries like razor, deodorant and other stuff.

Classic

Most men prefer wallet than purse. It's more convenient, more conventional and a classic one. You can use wallet in all occasions especially on some important events. Most of my friends prefer wallet that they also chose this to be a gift.

Safer

If you're riding a bus or train, men's wallet is safer to use. Criminals, snatchers, and other people are mostly likely to put their eyes on handbags as it is easier to steal it or steal something from it. Unlike in wallets, you could just put it in your pocket and just stay alert in your surroundings.

Everything can be stashed

I've always been a fan of wallets rather than purses, there's a lot of reason. The size is just right, perfect fit for the back pocket where I always put my wallet. The shape, not too round but not too sharp. I can put cards, cash, pictures, even candy wrappers in it.

Easy to secure

A wallet is way better than a purse because all we ever put inside our wallet is just cash, cards and protection. You would not see men having a purse because we don't really bring those kinds of things unlike girls who put in their makeup, lipstick, jewelry or whatsoever. Us men are just simple and do not really need something so big to bother us. We just want to put something in our pocket and go to where we want to go.

I agree with you. Wallets are very easy to hide and secure from pickpockets. Most men and every man that I know prefer this too.

Wallet is a better choice

I prefer using a wallet. Its easier to carry and very handy. You can store cash, credit cards, any important contact info and a lot of other stuff in the wallet. Also, it fits nicely into your pocket. With multiple layers of storage inside, it makes it easier to categorize the items you want to put into it.

Much more versatile, compact, and hideable

Wallets are more compact, smaller, able to fit in my pockets (to avoid some "snatching"), and is suitable for my philosophy whenever I travel outside ("Bring less to worry less"). They're just more convenient to use overall and that is why I think wallets are better.

True Men use wallet!

if I would choose between a wallet and handbag I would definitely go with a wallet. A wallet is more portable and I won't need to carry it all the time it is simple and simple is always the best. Just be careful because wallets can be easily stolen. My, advise? be attentive all the time.

It's very expensive compared to wallets.

a purse should not be exclusive to women

I do not believe that a purse should be exclusive to women. Men may need to carry more items with them than just their wallet and they should not feel awkward or ashamed to carry a "purse" or satchel. Many men need pens, journals, vitamins or tylenol, lotion, hand sanitzer, chap stick, etc. There is nothing intrinsically feminine about a purse except for the cultural standard that we have applied to it. In my mind this is complete nonsense. Let men use purses!

Hand Bag

We call it a Clutch Bag or a Hand Bag over here. I carry one evertime I go out. It's very useful, it's where I put my smartphone, keys, card holder, paper and pen, perfume bottle, money and other manly necessities. Wallets for me are quite limited, I need a bigger carrying case for my things.

It is also common for the majority of the male population at the place where I live to use wallets as it is the norm and using a purse as a man here would almost be the equivalent of a taboo. I reserve having any negative comments whatsoever regarding the , men who carry them.

I have never seen my husband using a purse even if he had a purse that was given to him as a gift. He said that it is not convenient and since he has a wallet in his pocket so that can carry the ID cards and the money which leaves the purse with no use. In fairness to the purse, there are men that I see with the purse and they are mostly the executives in our office. Maybe the purse is now getting popular with men because it is a good container for the cell phone.

I think that the purse would also fit the things that you have stated above only that they would fit excessively and the purse is a container that is too big to carry such. I fit all the cards I need in a small wallet that is all I need.

To be honest, I’m a bit surprised that men’s purses are even a thing. The main reason that I like using a wallet is that it’s one less thing to worry about. I wouldn’t want to carry a purse with me that could get stolen or misplaced at any point. Once I put my wallet in my pocket, it stays there until I either need to pay for something or have arrived at home. If I have to put down a purse somewhere, I can definitely see myself getting engrossed in a conversation and accidentally forgetting to pick it back up.

this is the thing with me as well my friend. When I carry a wallet it easily fits onto the clothes I am wearing whether its a jacket, coat or trouser and there is no issue of having to carry one more thing on your hand. Plus i also think that it is quite embarrassing to walk around with a purse.

Men didn't use to have the need for any kind of bag. Nowadays though, with men carrying more things with them such as mobiles they may need something bigger to put their stuff in when out and about.

However, if I was a man, I think I would prefer just to pop my wallet in my pocket and not bother with having to carry something about. As a female, I can tell you, that sometimes it is a real pain having to carry a bag all the time. I think a wallet is enough for a man to put all his bits and bobs in, but a purse or a man-bag for a man is too much to carry about.

The mobile phone is something that can be fit into the pocket as the wallet can too which is why a purse is very useless to any man. There are ladies who carry their phones in their trouser or blouse pockets which even shows the less masculinism in carrying any purse.

I also have never met any single man either in my neighborhood or country that uses a purse. It is really sexualized such that when you see someone with a purse it is almost taken as their weakness and they can easily be dismissed as not having the full genes for manhood.

Yeaah I concur that the defining moment is one of choosing the right wallet. It is never easy to get the perfect material and make that will be durable but still fit in all the things that you want to put in. However, when you have a trustworthy seller like I do they get you the best at all times when you need a new one.

Why do you need a purse as a man? I mean what is that that is so much you need to carry around that cannot simply fit inside your wallet. We get it with ladies they do have to carry their makeup and other cosmetic essentials but with men such staff are not essentials.

I would rather use a bag instead of a purse. Personally, I use men's wallet all the time and to be exact my choice would be the bi-fold ones because it is sleek and classy. I don't really got any chance to use men's purse and I don't plan on using one in the future either. I don't have anything against people who use men's purse but definitely not for me. I think it is fashionable for some who use a leather men's purse maybe I will need it when I would be in my 80's I guess.

I think man will choose wallet over purse but of course for us woman we tend to use both. I think wallet is more safer than that of purse.

Over here it is usually the men’s wallet that is in fashion although there was a time that the clutch bag was popular with the men. The wallet is the main storage of men for money and other important cards like ID or ATM. But lately I have been seeing men with small purse that would hold their phones and other personal effects. Maybe the purse is coming back with a vengeance.

Most of the time I choose men's purse over a wallet if I don't need to bring big paper bills. Wallets look ugly when bulky because of the coins you put on it. On the other hand, when the purse bulks it doesn't look ugly. I think men's purse is really made to carry coins and small paper bills while the wallet is designed for big paper bills. They have their own uses but wallet is more suited on a formal attire while purse for casual.

I use a wallet, and it's not even a full-size wallet but more of a front-pocket one where it only has compartments for a few cards and bills. I don't see the use of a man purse, and if ever I need to bring something with me like grooming stuff, I'll place it in my backpack.

I like guys carrying mens purse. It looks classic for me and formal. I guess its because my dad was always like this every time he goes to office when we where kids.
