A small item of everyday personal luggage, similar in size to a woman's purse except intended for use by a man, smaller than a briefcase or attache, carried by hand or by a shoulder strap (not belted nor belt-looped), and typically distinguishable from a woman's purse by having a tall, narrow, rectangular form-factor, rather than the short and wide shapes more typical of most women's purses.
"Let me gift-wrap this man-purse for you to present to that special gentleman, ma'am, since obviously a respectable woman like yourself wouldn't purchase such a masculine item for herself." (-paraphrased actual remark of a female shopkeeper in Amsterdam to an American shopper buying a tall, narrow purse)
