    Do you sometimes wish it would be ok to carry a handbag?

    It's bad enough wearing jeans in Thailand as it is when going out, but sometimes there just aren't enough pockets, and on combat trousers there's too many.

    It's alright for you women, if you want to go out and bring a camera, sunglasses for the morning after and an ipod - plus your passport and wallet, business cards, bills and shit, you can put it all in your bag.

    Red Dragon recently took the piss out of me in Tops because I hung my plastic shopping basket on my left arm - what's wrong with that?

    Well I can tell you al now, I'm as masculine as they come, I'm just talking about convenience here.

    Somebody should design something for men - we have had magazines and hair and skin products for the past twelve years so why not a mode of transport for all our shit?

    Even pooves don't carry handbags, how do they manage?

    Perhaps KW has the solution.
    "I'm an outsider by choice, but not truly. It's the unpleasantness of the system that keeps me out. I'd rather be in, in a good system. That's where my discontent comes from: being forced to choose to stay outside.
    My advice: Just keep movin' straight ahead. Every now and then you find yourself in a different place."

    Well then go ahead and carry one if you want to, they surely won't put your ass in jail, and I imagine that Bfly, Ralphie over in Laos, Butch, and some of these guys would be glad for a style change and a chance to carry a purse for their makeup and hair stuff.

    ^ Marmite is right, man bags are just acceptable for italians.

    You can follow Dirtydogs example and carry a bumbag but that looks wrong too for so many reasons. (Sorry DD)

    I found it the best solution to put all the stuff I cannot put in my shirts in my missus handbag (which can mildly annoy her).

    What about the camera every good Teakdoorer should carry to document everything for the forum?

    Because you looked like a right faggot! a shopping basket has Handles and therefore carried in your hand, wish I had a camera with me at the time would have been able to post it here for everyone to agree you looked like a poove as you say!

    My dear chap, overburdened by personal impedimenta is nature's way of telling you that you need a skivvy. I'm sure a personal bearer could be found for 5,000 bt per month and provided you don't compromise the relationship with sexual overtones I can see no reason why it should fail.

    Most of us resolve the problem through marriage but I do understand that this is not a solution in your case.

    Perhaps your company could supply a grip or even a best boy?

    I, usually, carry my camera, and all the bits, so I can stuff anything else in there. If I left it to Mrs LoomB to carry the important stuff, I am, sometimes, dissapointed.

    Why do you make things so bloody complicated. Sheilas were designed for carrying things. Find yourself a good one and you will never need to worry about more than the old "spectacles, testicles, wallet, watch". Call me old fashioned but what else do you really need when out on the town without a sheila in tow .

    *edit*

    ^Yeah, if you hang out on Kao San Road, and ask everybody you see "where's 'The Beach?'".
