My SO gave me a handbag a couple of years ago. It's black square thing with a strap over the shoulder strap so doesn't appear feminine in any way.
I think feminine may just be less familiar to men -- at least when enacted or worn by them. I find I sometimes 'go feminine' just to be a prickly sort and rub it into the men, and some women, shocked to see something on a man that has a feminine appearance.
At times the item may not "feel like me". However, I think that is mostly a matter of feminine things just being foreign to most of my experience for so long.
That same notion, any new clothing article may not feel quite 'right, or me' at first. But, if I wear it for a day or two, even about the house, my comfort level grows and I can head out the door with more confidence, and I usually find I come to quite enjoy the feminine aspect as well.
