Many will remember the subtle and rather uninitiated commentary on men’s purses on popular television series Friends where Joey carries a purse recommended by his fashionista friend Rachel and Seinfeld where Jerry carries a ‘’European carryall’’ instead of a bulky wallet like his goofy friend George. These 80s and 90s commentaries, however, have taken a new turn today featuring funky prints, stark monochrome, graphics, and other accessories to reflect the personalities of their holders. From preppy folios that say “I’m an intellectual!” to Virgil Abloh-approved nylon zip-locks, there’s a renewed trend in town for every guy and it’s ‘murses’.

Big name designers from Prada and Dior to Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga are making important fashion statements with their varied selections of men’s purses and pouches. Celebrated male fashionistas are flaunting them with finesse while transcending outdated gender norms in fashion. Check out this new trend ‘murses’ and how to pull it off this season.
