In response to the perpetual outcry of “stop posting $750 bags that look like purses” from a slough of supposedly hetero friends and readers, I give you the Marc Jacobs Leather-Lined Waxed-Canvas Messenger Bag, in black of course (ok you got me, it’s blue!) It retails for about $330, and cannot–under any circumstances–be mistaken for anything other than a messenger bag.

Solid materials, even proportions and nothing overtly flashy (save for a hidden clasp), this messenger comes in at 15 x 10 x 5 and sports a carry handle to do double-duty as a brief when necessary. Enjoy, and get off my back – I’m not dumbing-down my blog for you any more, haters.
