Won this Timbuktu sleeve for my iPad 2. Are the colors too feminine for a man?

    Debate below. I have been told yes and no. Trying to decide to keep or sell to a friend.

    Thanks.

    As a girl, I would say "yes, it's pretty girly" and not just the color but the shape.

    Nope. I ordered the Red/Grey/Black, but I was undecided. How is the fit? I find mine is overly tight. I actually have a e-mail in to Timbuk2 customer service.

    The fit is very tight but I can use it with the smart cover or a hard plastic case on the back just fine.

    Not girly at all.
    If the San Jose Sharks can wear these colors I think they are alright for a dude. I think there are other sports teams using that shade of blue as well.

    Who cares what others think. If you like it, be yourself. Go for it.

    Well thats the newest incarnation of the logo...I was thinking of the one they had when they first came into the league (which still appears a shade darker than that of the bag).

    Still. I think the only colors I wouldnt tote around are pink or lavender. It really depends on the guy. If you like it and get ripped for it just give em crap back.

    Actually a very good point. I like the colors.... Didn't even think it was a little low on the manly scale until my lady said something. Maybe she was just talking about me and not the bag!

    Wow. Thanks. Thought it would be a funny thread since we have sooooo many discussions on how to carry your iPad and if it is manly to carry it in a 'murse' or not.

    I have a headache from laughing so damn hard. I can't say I was expecting to see that as I scrolled down the page.

    Chill out dude. This thread had a positive vibe until you had to harsh our buzz. Check Richard Simmons out and laugh a little.

    Yes, you'll definitely be hit on by other men. It screams "catcher".
