Have you ever been in western Europe? The male handbag fad developed when the studs would not fit anything into their pockets. I have not been there in many years so maybe their tastes have changed. I found a link to a recent Huffington post on the subject. It's fluff, but the beat goes on. Not an issue for me I'm fat and don't like constricting clothes. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mihal-freinquel/the-skinny-jeans-debate_b_411133.html Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
