Description

The oldest known purse dates back more than 5000 years, and was a pouch worn by a man, Ötzi the Iceman. Men once carried coin purses. In early Modern Europe, when women’s fashions moved in the direction of using small ornamental purses—which evolved into handbags—men’s fashions were moving in another direction.

A bag for all your things

Men’s trousers replaced men’s breeches during the course of the 18th and 19th centuries, and pockets were incorporated in the loose, heavy material. This enabled men to continue carrying coins, and then paper currency, in small leather wallets.

Made from the finest canvas

Men’s pockets were plentiful in 19th century and 20th century trousers and coats, to carry an ever-increasing number of possessions, such as pipes, matches, pocketknives, and so on, and they were an item frequently mended by their wives.

    I love this little bag! I throw it in my backpack when I go on trips and it holds all kinds of my random accessories.
