MB for men??


If you don’t chat with me on the regular then you wouldn’t know that I have been pulling my hair out over the men’s collection that I want to create.   I have been approached on several occasions by different men on whether I could/will create items for them.  At first I thought, “What guy would actually wear a bag?”  Well after my last event I decided that it was time to at least attempt to please one of these guys.

I am still in the planning stage.  I still don’t have a name or logo for the labels. I want to keep it under the Myla’s Bags label, but I am unsure on how to incorporate the men’s line in to my current collection.  I don’t know too many men that will say their bag is a Myla’s Bags original.  Myla’s Bags I feel sounds to feminine. It’s almost like a man saying he got his underwear at Victoria Secret… sounds silly right?  I may add it to my Free Shelter line but I still am unsure of that too.

My idea is to create a bag for just about any man. Right now, I have an idea for the younger guys. I noticed that a lot of them still wear those flat drawstring bags or smaller sized book bags when they are out riding their bikes/skateboards.  I was inspired to create something similar, but very unique.  I have a few ideas of the more mature guy (age 25-40) but I am not sure if guys are still doing the messenger bag.  If I do it, I will have to get some fabrics to fit the young professionals lifestyle.  {SIGH!} So much to think about.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know what I was up to.  I’ll try to keep you all posted with updates on the new collection as well as other stuff!
Please feel free to share this link to my survey. I am still looking for input from the fella’s:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SSMFYNR
