Okay, technically it's an "iPad bag", but I'm fully aware it's a purse.
But I'm tired of carrying my keys, my headphones, my wallet, my whatever else in my pockets. Plus, I really do want to use it to carry my ipad.
If you're worried about it looking pansy or whatever, I see lots of men with a backpack.
Give us a link, OP, so we can see what it looks like.
Simple is good. It looks manly. You are defined by how you act, not always by perceived fashion accessories. Strut and go forth!
OP, that looks metrosexual. I see urban guys with bags like those.
Just ordered one too.
A worthy purchase, OP.
That doesn't look bad, OP. In fact, I may order it. I currently carry a messenger bag to work, but it's so bulky. I spent over $100 on it too, but if I'm being honest, it's main purpose if for me to just carry around a few things like a notepad, some chapstick, my keys ... I hate carrying such a big bag when it's really unnecessary but I didn't want to carry anything smaller because I would have felt like I was carrying a purse.
no purse can make you more woman-like. put that shit down and put your wallet in your pocket. be a man!
Just make sure that it matches your shoes.
Gosh, OP. Why did you buy one instead of waiting a little while longer for one fall out of your mouth?
R19, see R15
Now when they mug you they can get everything you have at once.
Now when you leave the party, you too can scream....HAS ANYONE SEEN MY PURSE!!
Im going to put a fake Chanel symbol on y so i can pretend im a very rich bitch
R20, thanks so much. What would we do without a school marm pacing the halls here? It must be so nice to serve a purpose in life. Since you offer nothing else.
I you want to man it up, tie a silk scarf around the handle.
I have a male purse, and it's fabulous. Like, OMG!
It's a handbag, HANDBAG, you purse your lips, not your bag!
Why is everyone asking OP to "man it up"? I'm a total top and love nelly bottoms. I love your pocketbook, Princess, and might even buy some new ones for your birthday.
Don't forget your moisturizer, lip balm, sunscreen, hairspray and mouthwash.
and your poppers, lube and douche
It summer. Im a gonna carry my sun in with me too!
Mine came today. Not bad. Ipad fits and smaller pocket for phone. Itll do the job.
How could it be a "vintage" iPad case?
R32, which color did you get? I got the black. It seems very durable. I can put my iPad, my keys, headphones and my work badge in there. Perfect.
If you drive, don't leave it on top of your car with your $5.00 latte.
Don't forget to carry a can of pepper spray. When thieves see a man carrying a purse, they think "easy target!"
I was looking at ipad backpacks and noticed that all of them had the ipad accessible from behind. Meaning if you're walking down the street, person can come up behind you, open your backpack and grab your ipad. I imagine it would be easy to pull off if two people are working together and the first person stumbles in front of you or collides with you and the second person busies himself getting your ipad out.
I gots the gray one.
OP, how did your purse work out? I'm curious because I think I'm gonna buy one. TIA
It's a MURSE!
I guess it will suffice until your Birkin Bag is ready.
Wear it with a simple black dress, a single strand of pearls, and basic black heels. Keep the earrings simple, perhaps pearl studs.
I have that same bag! It's convenient, because it does zip up. So I just throw my gum and chapstick in there. So yeah I total use it as a purse! But I do keep my iPad in there and no one has ever called it a purse or questioned it. Some people have even asked where I got it.
There doesn't seem to be a gray option anymore (khaki, black or olive.) But OP should get a kickback, because I ordered one, too! Although I'm a little concerned because even though the description says it's padded, the reviews seem to indicate that it's not. Oh well, for $13 I don't really care as long as it fits my tablet (not an iPad) and my Kindle.
To tap into this season's tribal trend OP, you are going to want to stitch some suede fringing along the bottom of the purse.
Then, invest in armfulls of fun beaded bracelets in an assortment of clashing colors and some monochrome chunky wooden bangles.
Add a pair of roomy animal print cotton pants and you are all set for S/S 2014 honey!
Why don't we get some embroidered with the Datalounge logo! Then we can all buy them and be like members of a club!
Oh, Mary, you haven't enjoyed the ultimate bag experience until you've owned a hands-free, cross body bag. It's also gives would be thieves that "don't mess with me" vibe, and it will never,ever slide off your shoulder. Fab!
Here's a pic of mind with all the stuff it can hold:
Always buy one in black, and another in a fun color or print. You won't be sorry !
I don't know where you live, OP, but in New York almost everyone carries some kind of bag. The fear of having it called a "purse" and therefore being feminized seems silly to me.
I couldn't live without my Quiksilver-brand waist pack. I let the strap all the way out, and wear it bandolier-style across my chest.
This particular bag has three outer pockets, plus three interior pockets. And the strap easily unbuckles so I can secure it to a chair when I'm sitting at a sidewalk cafe to foil thieves.
It's big enough to carry everything I need: business cards; reading glasses; sunglasses; medications; loose change; cellphone; wallet; iPhone earbuds; tooth picks and dental floss.
Amazon sells them for $20 each.
You carry deodorant around with you during the day? Credit cards go inside my wallet, which goes in my trouser pocket.
My bag is green, from L L Bean.
A Bean Bag ?
Purse? Puhleeze, every urban gay needs a bag.
I bought this monster from Briggs and Riley years ago and it has been through hell and back and stood up well. Briggs and Riley have a lifetime warranty as well. I originally bought it to haul my big ass laptop on work trips, but now I use it for my Ipad, keyboard, gym clothes, groceries and every other fucking thing I can think of.
Since I live in a city and don't drive I need a bag that will hold everything I'm going to do that day.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
