    Not very appealing - Mulberry would be better - or most things probably!

    That's a satchel but I guess it looks like a purse. I'll check out Mulberry for sure.

    Black or Olive drab for all things. My husband carries his 2 cameras and journals in his bag. It's not a purse, it's European! (Plus, he wears so many glasses, I can't keep track).

    I tend toward the utility/milsurp look. Best bag I ever had was an Hungarian gas mask bag, I was sorry to see it go. WW2 British map and courier bags are awesome as well. This CN bag doesn't particularly look good or like it has that much utility. I would steer clear of it, but, as mentioned, if you do go for it get any colour but white yeah.

    I don't think it looks like a purse, it does look like a handbag though.

    Buy it.

    ^ LOL!

    There's a fine line in manbags, where they look universally appealing, not too "dainty", and have a bit of a business/military vibe, but don't look like you're a yuppie, a bike courier, or gonna reach in for a grenade. I like them, but my wife tends to like ones that are just a bit too purse-like for my tastes. I can only wear those in NYC or Europe without sending erroneous messages.

    Suddenly my Microsoft swag-bag $0.50 backpack with .NET logo doesn't seem so tacky.

    In a darker color, preferably black, it would look masculine and yet versatile, appropriate enough for almost any occasion/wearing.

    My husband carries one by this company- Derek Alexander- in nylon, olive drab.

    Sorry to add one more NO reply to the post..

    But seriously not for a man, maybe for a lady.

    For a man.. I guess.. something like these would fit better. (Well, I do not know about how you look at all but this suggestion comes from imagining that you've got the image that I dream of.)
