'Today Show' Talks Men's Grooming & Fashion Vocabulary
Posted by Patrick on 1/30/2012 to Random Reads

'The Today Show' recently did a feature on the men's grooming and fashion industry, specifically looking at all of the new vocabulary and slang there is within the industry. They called it "Grab Your Murse: The New Guide For The Modern Man". Led by Jenna Bush Hager, here was some of the "mo-cabulary" discussed: 
  • Man-bag: man bag 
  • Manpris: man capris 
  • Mewelry: man jewelry 
  • Mandals: man sandals 
  • Murse: man purse 
  • Meggings: man leggings 
  • Mankini: man bathing suit 
  • Marka: man parka 
  • Mampered: man pampered 
Matt Lauer (whom I've met before) was more metrosexual and definitely embraces taking care of yourself, while Al Roker was more resistent to change. Erin McKean from Wordnik.com explained that "the prefix 'man' or the 'm' in these words to assert the masculinity around these words for items that are traditionally feminine."
