Terrible news here for all of my fellow MAN PURSE aficionados.  We may look totally cool and sophisticated and manly carrying our man purses . . . but we could be causing ourselves health problems.  ALMOST makes you question if it's worth it.

According to the British Chiropractic Association, carrying a man purse can cause long-term back problems.

They say that the average amount of weight in a man's purse is 13 POUNDS, between a smartphone, laptop or tablet, and other miscellaneous crap.

Having a man purse that heavy on your shoulder can cause subtle changes in your posture, which can eventually screw up your back's alignment.

They suggest that if you still want to carry a man purse, keep the strap short and regularly alternate which shoulder you use to carry it.
