Is my new Gryson too much like a "man bag" or a briefcase?

  1. Hi everyone!

    I purchased the Gryson Taylor (saddle-like) bag over the weekend from Nordstrom. At first, I really fell in love the the utility of it. However, the more I think about it, the more it's starting to look like a "man bag" or briefcase to me. What do you guys think? I think it would be a great work bag, but I want something that I can wear casually without it looking too professional.

    I apologize for the pictures...as soon I as tried taking a a picture, the batteries died on me!

  4. I don't think so. The color is beautiful!
     
  5. I like it. Can you explain the clasp/closure on the exterior or front of the bag? I just can't get get my mind around it. How does it work and how long does it take to close and open? I ask because it appears to be the same one as on the Josey.
     
  6. It's gorgeous! You are one lucky woman! It's a beautiful classy piece, nothing 'manly' about it at all, IMO. Great for day- or nighttime.

    But - once you started second-guessing yourself, what was it you saw that made you think it was more like a 'man bag'? Do you normally carry a more feminine girly bag, and this one is a step in the other direction, or ? We're here to help you figure it out -

    Don't take it back just yet, let's work this out - it is a beautiful bag...
     
  7. I love it. Very beautiful and classy! Not manly at all.
     
  8. I'm going to be the lone dissenting voice here....I don't think it looks like a man bag (it would need to have thicker straps for that, IMO) but it's not super feminine either. Which may be a good thing if you're not into frilly, decorated styles. It doesn't "wow" me, but you're the judge so if you love it, rock it!
     
  9. I really like it. It is not a "girly" bag, but I definitely don't think it is manly either. It is a beautiful, classic bag that I think could work great with a polished work look, or easily also be a more casual go-to bag. :tup:
     
  10. I love it! It's gorgeous and very stylish.
     
  11. I agree with greenpixie..it's in between. It's a good unisex bag. But I think it looks cute on you!
     
  12. Cool bag. Too much detailing on it to look like a man's bag. Nice!
     
  13. I think it's beautiful. If, however, you are concerned that it's a little manly (which I don't think it is), maybe you could get it in a lighter color. Does it come in any other colors?
