What Was Really Over His Shoulder?
For many, Michelangelo's statue of David represents the ideal man; strong, confident, purposeful and just. But what many don't know is that the original statue included a very differernt kind of sling--the manbag kind! The original statue sported a satchel David used to carry the famous sling that slew Goliath. And why not? You go to a rock fight, you better bring extra rocks. And what better way than a stylish Italian man bag--practical, trendy, manly. But alas David's satchel was too fashion-forward for the times and big D's manbag was chizeled off and lost to the Ages forever.
But the manbag lives on!
Face it. Gone are the days where everything you needed to survive a day in this modern fast-paced world can fit in your pocket. It’s just not doable any more. If you’re roaming around the streets with just your wallet in your pocket, you’re either alarmingly under-equipped for life, or you’re cheating and getting your other half to cart around your stuff. And that’s not cool.
But the good news is that the Gentleman’s Satchel (or ‘Man Bag’, if you will) is no longer just for the metrosexual man. It’s now universally acceptable for us all to have them. And, in fact, we all should! What’s even better news is that there is now a huge range of different options available to comfortably and stylishly cart all our stuff around.
Why the bag?
Let’s start with basics. Some of you guys may not exactly know what you could possibly need throughout the day to constitute such an apparatus. It’s not uncommon for guys to assume they’ll somehow just bounce around their day and come out the other side with no problems. This is known as our severe LACK OF PLANNING. So what happens when the unthinkable happens, and all you have to contribute to the solution is a few coins, an old condom and your licence? Even MacGuyver couldn’t fix a problem armed with that! Get a manbag and carry it proudly!
