Men's purse or not is all a cultural issue, if it could be named an issue. This shot is from the largest and most important men's fashion event in the world: Pitti Uomo. Buyers come from all over the world to bring home the last collections. Most of these buyers come from the US. These people in the picture are on the street to show what fashion designers did. As you can see there are bags everywhere! And anyway USA has a long tradition on men's bags. I am just thinking to Filson as well other brands.
