Guy Friday: Pierre Hardy's New, Elusive Man Bag (And A Few You Can Actually Find for Him)

I know we all get annoyed when guys ask us to stow their wallets, keys, books, and other items in our purses–and I also know it's near impossible to convince them that they should just carry a bag themselves. But I spotted something today that gave me hope –hope that YES WE CAN change the tepid relationship between man and bag.

What: Pierre Hardy Fall 2008 Bags for Men


Why: The City bag (left) and Sport bag (right) are simple, sophisticated, and, most importantly, masculine without being at all athletic. The leather is of superb quality, and you can tell just by looking that it is soft and supple to the touch, yet because hasn't been distressed in any way, the look is still clean. And not only are they handsome, but they'll give your man a place other than your purse to put his iPod, magazine and other brawny man-on-the-go items. Unfortunately, though, according to his representatives, Pierre Hardy's hot bags will likely not be sold online. You'll have to find your way to the designer's Paris showroom, or make the trek to your nearest Nordstrom, which just got them in stock. Like many dreams, this one–of a world where men don't feel like ladies just because they carry a purse–too, is elusive.

But there is good news. While Hardy is the only guy we know desgning men's bags with such innovative shapes, more familiar alternatives do exist. If you're determined to make your man realize the joys of mobile storage space, try one of these great options:

Christian Dior makes a mean messenger bag ($900).


And the worn leather of Dolce & Gabbana's version ($708) is reminiscent of Hardy's bags.


While this dark brown Cole Haan duffel ($273) offers a different–and far more affordable–take on the murse.
