Manbags are a touchy area for any straight guy. For most straight guys, I’d say it’s a no go zone (even if they wanted to – which for most guys isn’t even an issue). But under certain conditions, it can be done. However, the dude has to wear clothes well, have good style in general, and has to be comfortable in his own skin. You can’t wear a manbag and wonder if you look like a sissy boy while doing so, or you’ll just end up looking like a sissy boy.

Now, as Lainey has mentioned more than a couple of times, my style is the sh-ts unless she dresses me. So I stay the f-ck away from anything that’s supposed to go over one shoulder. That includes manbags. My buddy Jamie once shocked me a little when I picked him up for a round of golf. He was sporting a manbag. I had to take a picture with my phone and send it to Lainey on the spot for approval cause I wasn’t sure he was pulling it off. She said it looked good.  He gets a pass. I think. But I wouldn’t dare.

Here’s Viggo Mortensen in Hollywood last night with a manbag of a different flavour. Some kind of native weave. This, of course, is consistent with his tendency to shuffle to the beat of his own drummer, as Lainey explained during TIFF. So it’s hard to have that “does he pull it off” discussion cause it’s just so out there. Especially with the suit and the Ron Duguay hockey hair circa 1986.

Like Viggo cares, though.
