According to market research company Mintel, how manymen bought a manbag in the UK last year? Was it…

a) 5%

b) 15%

c) 25%

 

 

1

An accessory (配件,配饰) is an additional item added to something to make it more useful or attractive. 

2

Imean, I wouldn't be seen dead (决不会) carrying amanbag!

3

I just stuff (把…塞进) everything in my pockets Rob – it's

better than being a laughing stock (笑柄),carrying a handbag around!

4

For hundreds of years women have carried their possessions (私人物品) around in handbags, so why can't a man do the same with a manbag? 

5

Pharrell Williams, David Beckham and Kanye West, are just some of those who've been spotted rocking a manbag. Rocking is an informal way of saying 'wearing'

6

But what's wrong with a sturdy (结实的;坚固的) briefcase –sturdy means strong and not easily damaged. Are you saying manbags are just fashionable?

7

In Britain we are still very tied up with that idea of masculinity (男性;男子气概) that is almost so fragile (脆弱的) that it can be dented (挫伤) by carrying a bag. We think a lot about that in this country in a way that I don't think a lot of European men do.

8  a hefty pricetag  高价  (非正式的说法)

But with people like Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Gucci and Dolce and Gabbana designing these bags, they're bound to have a hefty (很大的;超出一般的;可观的) pricetag (价格标签) –that's an informal way of saying a high price.  

9

Well fashion comes at a price Neil – you need to shake off (摆脱) your inhibitions(拘束) –that's a feeling of embarrassment that stops you from doing something. And if you really want to be on trend you could also splash out (花大笔钱买) on a 'murse' that's a man's purse (钱包), or a 'mote' – a man's tote bag (大手提袋)? Have I convinced you?
