After just blogging about how satchels look good on men, Nick Jonas says this little gem of a quote at the just-cancelled show It’s On with Alexa Chung:
“I’m not going to lie about it. I carry a satchel too. It’s like a man purse. It’s a whole thing.” - Nick Jonas, after admitting he gets pedicures, also admits to carrying a man purse.

OK Nick Jonas, if you call it a “man purse”, it does sound bad. It sounds like something a straight man should never ever be caught dead wearing. Even by attaching the word “man” to it, it doesn’t really give it any masculinity at all. In fact, it actually does quite the opposite. Ever heard of mandals, guy-liner, or manties? Yeah, those terms didn’t come from straight men.
Anyway, being vexed at Nick Jonas for ruining our image of satchels for men isn’t going to do any good, so we’re just going to take a cue from the boys and list some SATCHELS made especially for women.
