I do have one and you can have a look at the Action Pic I posted, but I have to be honest and tell you I don't wear it too often. It definitely has a certain feminine feel to it and I tend to grab my Rive Gauche and the Raspail more often, only going for the Muse when the rest of the outfit is very structured.

Currently, I can't get the Besace Messenger out of my head which I think would make a terrific men's bag. Other than that, I usually stick to classic totes.

Hi C_24, do you find Rive Gauche good for men? I like Rive Gauche very much but wonder if this is a little bit too feminine to wear it. Do you have a pic to share? I want to see how good a guy wear Rive Gauche before I buy one.

C-24, thank you. After seeing your pic, I decided to buy a Rive Gauche. What is the most versatile color? Black or brown? Calf or patent?

^It's the term for colour that fades from one shade to another (e.g. dark to light or pink to purple)

Here's a pic, but personally I'm not a fan of patent for men. I would go for leather (it's actually goat not calf, and Anthracite is a tdf colour!)

Muse is a bit too feminine IMO, but they have it in men's version now, which has more masculine look.




I would vote fore RG or Besace. BTW, I have the same tan RG as C_24, and it would look, good on both, guys and gals. Ombre looks great, and more durable than calf, but it makes the bag looks shinier and, again, more feminine.

^That's a weekend bag/overnighter. Not very practical for everday. Although, it is gorgeous.

:tup: The goat skin used on the regular Rive Gauches is so soft and smooshy, I love it! And while I do think it is a little more delicate than calf, mine has been really durable. I had it at a friend's place and her large dog took an interest in it and pawed at it (I had it sitting in a corner) and it survived fine. I just wiped down the paw prints the next day and they came right off, there were no tears or anything from his doggie nails. It's an amazing bag.

Finally, I bought Hamptons, which is a men's version of EASY bag for HK$8,000 (US$1,000). It is made of calf skins but the texture is excellent and feels like deer skin. I love that!
