Hmmm. I don't honestly think that it would be the best bag available for a guy. IMHO I think you would be better sticking to the men's mulberry styles (unless of course you know that he likes and would be comfortable with a bays). Mulberry do some great men's satchel styles.

Would he like a satchel? Something like the brynmore style would look very nice on you too, so you could still borrow it!

Hope you don't mind me putting my 2 cents in.

Bays can work on a guy - but it depends on the guy. There are two gents on the Mulberry forum who have bays - one has a ticking stripe bays and he looks absolutely fabulous, and the other I don't remember the colourway.

Both men a fashionistas oozing with confidence, they own it - so I guess it comes down to your BF and his style.

IWantANewBag suggestion of a messenger is a good one. My DH wears a messenger also and loves it (not Mulberry, another brand).

Ehm, well the bf is not a fashionistas, but does know how to look nice. he wears suits for work.

My DH would rather cut his hand off than carry a bays. He does however use a barnaby and it looks great on him. He could never be described as a fashionista!

I have to say it really would have to be a guy who would choose this himself - if I bought one for my husband you would hear the laughing, followed quickly by bemusement, and swiftly again by guffawing, into the middle of the next century :biggrin:

Its a handbag at the end of the day lol, with a small handle heeheee ;)

What about a Piccadilly instead of a Bays? It's still the same shape but I think the bigger size looks more appropriate for guys. My guy friend carries a black Piccadilly and it looks really good on him. Bays is just too small for a guy IMHO

I completely agree with Inem on this one:yes: I feel the Piccadilly is a much more 'manly' bag ..if that makes sense! xoxo

another vote for piccadilly! one of my friends he often carries a black picadilly and thinks it's versatile, easy to go with everything. btw he has a good taste in styling :smile:
