Who needs a manbag?
According to market research company Mintel, how manymen bought a manbag in the UK last year? Was it…
An accessory (配件，配饰) is an additional item added to something to make it more useful or attractive.
Imean, I wouldn't be seen dead (决不会) carrying amanbag!
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!
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?
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'.
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?
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.
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?
