Yay or Nay -- Proenza Schouler PS1 Large Linen





Everyone knows how I love the Proenza Schouler PS1 Messenger and how I've been tirelessly persuading the duo to come up a version for guys. I guess the message never got to them, or they're just being stubborn. 

On the verge of tripping into 2011, my need for a PS1 continues. I spotted this linen version from the Spring collection at AlohaRag, a website based at Hawaii that carries indie brands from Proenza Schouler to Rick Owens. The description on AlohaRap calls this PS1 bag a large version, which I think is the perfect size for a guy. But the PS online shopping site calls this a medium and is around $200 cheaper (Not very Aloha for AlohaRag). 

I decided to forgo this one and calm myself back to my desperate wait for a bona fide PS1 bag for men

But I can't help wondering what if *********** 

So what do you guys think?

  1. I think that if you want it, buy it! The idea of things being for men and women is purely marketing.

  2. Hey,
    thanks for checking out my blog!
    I added a follow button (whoops)

    I also desperately want a PS1, however I'm partial to the extra large.
    The white linen is amazing, but probably wouldn't age too well.
    Love your blog (and am very jealous of your Hermes bag)

  3. Love the bag, the boys at Proenza can do no wrong!
    Their linen bag seems unisex to me, you should get it! I personally love the PS11!

  4. I think the PS1 is masculine enough, especially in that combo, after all, it's based on men's satchels non? I think that the keepall version looks absolutely manly and may be PS's answer to your request. The PS1 keepall reminds me so much of Hermès' Drag and this one is quite "affordable" than H.

  5. I don't see this bag being exclusive for women! It looks a lot like the Cambridge satchel (but so much better) so go get it!!:)

    Have a Happy New Year!xx

  22. Hey, I love your blog! keep up the great work! I've ordered the Proenza Schouler ps1 linen bag and should arrive anytime now, will let you know how I like it when I see it in person! I am also a guy and am very curious to see if the bag is too small or too fem for a male fashionistas to carry it. of course anyone can carry anything as long as you feel good about it, but there is the proportion issue, if the bag is too small, it usually doesn't look good when a guy carry it (it's just my opinion). love your blog! <3

  23. ok, I've received my Linen PS1 bag, surprisingly, it's the perfect size!! it is the medium size and I was worried about it might be too small for a guy to carry, but OMG! it's perfect! you can carry it as a satchel or with the shoulder strap on one shoulder or I use the longer blk color leather strap from other PS bags on this one to wear it as a messenger bag, it's just perfect! light weight and totally unisex looking! so shane, if you wanna get one of this bag, go for it! you will love it! if you wanna see how it looks like on guy, come see it at my blog, I post a modeling photo of myself (I am not as thin & in shape like you so don't laugh haha!) not sure if I can post the link here, feel free to remove it (http://www.fashionistasdaily.com/2011/02/proenza-schouler-ps1-linen-satchel.html) I love this bag!
