The history of Men's bags
As far as we know, the first handbag or men's bags were found 5000 years ago. At first, men carried coin purses, as the name reveals, to bring the coins together in a bag. Women's fashion started using small purses, like handbags. For the men, there was just a tiny adjustment in trousers. Pockets were placed so they could carry coins, later paper currency in small leather wallets. In the 19th and 20th centuries, trousers and coats would have plenty of big enough pockets to carry possessions, such as pipes, matches, and knives.
Around 1970, the handbags for men were revived. Designers made a diverse range of bags for men. Names like: man bag, man-purse, and murse have been used to promote the utility of a men's bag.
