iPad linked to skyrocketing of manbag sales
The Daily Mail has revealed that manbags sales have risen by 2,700%, due to the fact that they want something to carry their iPads and other gadgets in. women’s bags have shrunk by around 61%, making manbags heavier than womens. This is said to be due to the fact that gadgets aimed at women are becoming smaller.
It seems that the Daily Mail are saying that men choose large girlie bags and women don’t have the need for large bags. Of course a better answer would be that women have separate bags for tech and this is the reason why smaller handbags are preferred.
