I was inspired to get a man-purse by WhoHasTimeForThis (LINK). Ostensibly a "vertical Messenger Bag for the MacBook/MacBook Air/Thinkpad X300", I might as well call it what it is. Tom Bihn calls it his Ristretto Messenger (LINK). Carries my electronic body extension, a Lenovo X61s, plus miscellaneous cables in a Waterfield Gear Pouch (LINK) and a few pens and a notebook. Perfecto! Shown in comparison to a size 11.5 Puma Usan (LINK).
