Equally appropriate for people like Cary Grant and Carrie Underwood. This is the "they/them" of leather bags. I get the dynamic of traditional feminine and masculine looks. Women can carry whatever they want but men have always had an uphill battle when carrying a bag like this. It's more a satchel than a purse, but I know people are going to try to call it a "murse". I've had men ask for a more manly bag. Up until this bag, I've only had my full sized laptop bags which is definitely too big for your every day carry. This bag is a great size for all the things you don't want to (or can't) stuff in your pockets!
