Post What Do You Keep in Your Manbag? Metrosexual Thread.
All of the love for Metal poring out in the Elitist thread has offended my delicate sensibilities, so here's a long overdue Metrosexual thread. Let's start with manbags, what on earth did men do without them? I have battered grey satchel-y type thing and a bigger leather one that is less convenient. The satchel needs replacing but haven't found one that is the right size and price, £50 for a bag? Fuck off.

What do I keep in it:

Tissues (lol)
Paracetamol
Pens and notebook
Inhaler (or spaz cannister if you will)
Books (a pretentious one to pretend to read and then a Terry Pratchett or one on dinosaurs for when no one's looking)
Umbrella
Water bottle
Lunch sometimes
Chewing gum
Toothpicks
Guns

You are threatened by my well groomed masculinity.

I don't have a manbag.

I did, some time ago, consider starting a thread called "What Has It Got In Its Pocketses?" with a very similar premise, but it was during one of those periods where I couldn't post anything at all without a shitstorm kicking up, so I didn't bother. And then I forgot about it.

Agreed with Was, you only need what you can keep in your pockets.

Cute little bastard.

I have two at the moment; the first is a fancy leather one I use for work. Current contents:

Work laptop + charger
Big blue pad (where I make lists of things to do at work so I can feel smug when I cross them off)
Pens (all stolen from hotels)
Business cards
Calculator
Assorted paperwork
iPod
Phone charger

The second is the scruffy satchel thing I bought at uni for about a tenner which is the single most durable thing I've ever owned. I think it's close to falling apart (the strap is attached to the bag by about half of the original fastening now) but it's been with me through uni, festivals, my first year at work and across five different continents so I'm only getting a new one when this one falls to bits. At the moment it's packed for a medium-length journey (ie I haven't unpacked it since I got back from Liverpool last week), minus my non-work laptop and charger (which I'm using now, duh).
Current contents:

Book (Bill Bryson at Home)
Underwear
Socks
Toothbrush + toothpaste
Deodorant
Empty water bottle (I'm a chronic recycler, so wherever facilities aren't available I'll carry my empties home and chuck them in our green bin. For losers like me this is a big plus of the manbag)
DVD (Manhattan)

(Following Dee's lead I've just stocked both of my manbags with Paracetemol. I never seem to be able to find some when I need it.)

As you can see I usually have enough stuff to necessitate a small satchel in which to carry it. Even if I'm leaving the house without much stuff I might buy something, and the manbag is there to hold my new purchase. There's also something inherently odd about the manbagless man. Where is he going with so little purpose? What could he possibly be planning to do
with so little equipment? What's his agenda? Is he going to steal my manbag? I bet he is, the bastard. He's jealous. Bastard.

The alternative to the manbag is the backpack, which looks ridiculous on anyone over the age of 16 who isn't hiking somewhere.

:( I have a rucksack since I've never found a satchel big enough for the stuff I carry around with me daily:

Mine is similar to this, an older Timberland backpack. Same colour way too. Matches my blue 'n' white vans. Fuck you.

In the said bag currently:

Empty water bottle
Jogging Bottoms/T-shirt for gym
A4 Hardback Sketchbook
Three A5 hardback sketchbooks
Various documents and briefs for this semesters projects.
Brian Froud's "Good Faeries/Bad Faeries" (Art Books for inspiration/reference)
Brian Froud and Alan Lee's "Faeries"
The Arthur Rackham Treasury (Book full of key prints of his in full colour)
"Painting Animals" by Christophe Drochon and Francoise Coffrant
"Folklore Myths And Legends Of Britain" Reader's Digest (It's about 35-40 years old)

Range of sketching pencils from hb/B to 6B
Staedler Fineliner selection 0.1 to 0.8
Quill Pen
Black Indian Ink (Windsor & Newton)
Sable Brush Series 3 Size 2A
Portable Watercolour Set (Windsor & Newton)
Watercolour brushes.

A backpack probably compliments your whole oversized manboy look well (it's a metrosexual thread and I'm fucking well making the most of it), but suit and backpack is an atrocious combination.

I have a rucksack for uni, otherwise it's a case of phone and ipod/wallet (dependant on if I need the wallet) and a key.
The bag currently has an a4 lined paper pad, a few pens, a waterproof jacket, a compass and binoculars, tonnes of screwed up bits of paper that have just hastily been shoved in.

Quite so. Men are excused of manbag carrying on the grounds of being: escorted by a woman with a bag, working class, old, mentally infirm or out for a fight.

My manbag is scantily used these days, though I will be taking it with me tomorrow as I have a couple of possible sackings to facilitate...

So, it always contains:

Several gel pens (predominantly black, some blue, one red) and a couple of biros (all blue Bics)
My A4 notepad
Pack of blu-tac (you'd be surprised how often...)
AAA Batteries (for the dictaphone I'm going to mention later)
Travel pack of Tissues (am currently out of these, will have to pick some up tomorrow)
Packed lunch
Bottle of water (note, these last 2 are added if required when I leave the house and doesn't ALWAYS live in there!)

Tomorrow it will contain:

The above
A dictaphone
The two files for the two people we're having the two different meetings with

That is, actually it... It's feeling quite unloved and unused at the moment.

Men are excused of manbag-carrying through the dangerous and cutting-edge technology known as "pockets".

I do not own a manbag of any description.
Anything big needs carrying, the wife will stick it in her handbag or it goes on/in/under the push chair.

Other than when I have my big winter coats on there is not enough room in my pockets for all my stuff. Or in the summer when I wear my big combat shorts.

Books don't fit in pockets.
