There’s never been a better time for men’s bags. Big name designers from Prada to Dior to Louis Vuitton are all making some big fashion statements with their wide selections of men’s pouches and purses. We’re seeing the most celebrated male fashionistas carrying them around, taking the first steps (and the extra cool points) for transcending outdated gender norms in fashion. There’s a serious reason why these “murses” are super on-trend right now.

The argument, we suppose, is pretty simple: if women are carrying handbags, why shouldn’t men? Not only can men pay equal attention to their style and fashion, but guys can also get pretty sick of having weirdly bulky pockets. From preppy folios that say “I’m an intellectual!” to Virgil Abloh-approved nylon zip-locks, there’s a “murse” (that’s a “man purse” for those who don’t know) to suit every type of guy. The really great thing about men’s pouches is that they can be like a badge of the guy’s unique character. There are funky prints, stark monochrome, graphics, and so much else you can have on these accessories to reflect the personalities of their holders.

This season, keep your style game as well as all your belongings in order with our round-up of this season’s most stylish designer men’s pouches. Whether you go for a murse, pochette, wallet, portfolio, or actual purse, we know one thing’s for sure: there’ll be no more bulky pockets.
