Gusto, no, first it requires then to think!!!!
and that is so….
Sometimes you guys provoke it -- or maybe it's just the image of Indiana Jones with bag and whip ... anyway, after my query about pocket solutions since I was 'shuddering' at the thought of a feminine purse, I got whipped with your admonitions to just get a purse. So, success gentlemen -- or partial so far -- I bought my first 'bag' (purse). Actually I bought two, but like early skirt buying -- I was not well enough informed about the nuances and I fear only one is going to work, but hey, I bought it. Interestingly the doing harkened back my 'nerves' when buying my first skirts (I buy off the rack so I can try them on) not mail order for fear of fit failure. I had the same sense of nerves and 'what will folks think -- a guy browsing through purses? I could not even pass it off to 'looking for my wife..." as I was as usual, in a skirt! The sense of unease did not have the intensity or duration of buying those first skirts, but sure took me back through some of those old anxieties.
OK chaps, you have a half-success, I've bought the purse. Now I need to use it! Yes, my left brain, or is it the right one, says all is fine and logical ...but now I have to walk down the street yet to confirm I've not gone too far!

Sling it over your shoulder and head out the door as if the sun is shining and everything is right in the world. I doubt that there will be any grief. If there is, make mention that in other civilised parts of the world that guys carry bags as a matter of routine.

It seems men quit carrying bags when they wore suit coats with all the pockets in them.
It's nice to pick up a bottom (e.g., trousers) and not have a bunch of coins clattering on the floor. Also, washed cell phones don't work so well as what happened one time when I left one in a pocket and washed the garment.
