If you are a 90’s kid – wait, who are we kidding – regardless of your age, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard and laughed about Joey Tribbiani’s ‘man bag’ at least once in your life. ‘The Man Bag’ is an increasingly popular fashion and style accessory for the modern day man. It allows you to carry all your belongings in a neat and handy-dandy manner; and if carried properly, a man bag actually makes quite an astonishing fashion statement for men.
Now, it has been quite a debate since ages about the actual necessity of a man bag. ‘Should men carry bags everywhere’ to ‘what actually is a man bag’ to ‘how to carry a man bag and look masculine’ are just examples of the questions that may arise in your mind. Well, the answer is simple. Can you carry a laptop in your pocket? Can you carry a dozen business cards in your wallet? Well, maybe that you can, but then that puffy wallet stuffed in your front pocket will look anything but remotely decent or fashionable! You see, man bags are an absolute necessity and can totally become a stylish accessory with just a little effort.
Three Types of Man Bags that You Totally Need
- Bag Pack: The good ol’ bag packs, or rucksacks, aren’t just to carry your text books around campus but can actually be a pretty functional grownup accessory if you hike or camp or just travel a lot. It is the most ergonomic way of carrying heavy loads – and let’s face it, it makes you appear pretty cool and mysterious too.
- A Strapped Leather Briefcase: Ditch the heavy old structured briefcase – what are you gonna do with it? Carry papers? Get a leather briefcase instead preferably with a compartment/sleeve for your laptop and a shoulder strap. Carry it in style to your work or office.
- A Messenger Bag: Phones, wallets, keys, phone chargers, gum, mints, shades – throw in all that jazz in a medium sized messenger bag, or crossbody bag, and carry all your stuff around in class and style.
