The Man Bag

1 Comment Share:

The ‘man bag’ is always a bone of contention, but knock them all you like, in this modern age the number of items the modern man carries around with him has grown and will continue to grow; think camera, phones, wallets, books, netbook, etc. etc.

Here I have assembled a few of my current favourite man bags for your consideration:

Paul Smith Flight Bag

As always, you can trust Paul Smith to do things in style and this flight bag is no exception. With smooth black leather trims, multi-coloured stripes, an adjustable shoulder strap and a zip opening, the bag is lined with purple canvas and has an internal zipped pocket and a padded compartment ideal for your laptop. On the outside it features a concealed zip pocket and a leather luggage tag.  Priced at £195.00 from Paul Smith

Hackett British Traveller Series Fisherman Bag

From a collection inspired by the travelling British gentry from decades past but with very modern credentials. This fisherman bag utilises finest quality 18oz bonded cotton, vegetable tan leather trim from North American hides, solid brass fittings and Swiss made hand polished zips. The British Traveller Series fisherman bag has a distinctive British feel, designed and made in England.  Priced at £180.00 from Hackett

Mandarina Duck Stitch Leather Messenger Bag

This beautiful leather messenger bag features top-stitch and gunmetal detailing and a contrasting lining but as well as looking great it has plenty of room to fit in all your essentials.  So whether you’re just popping into the office or heading out to a club and don’t trust your valuables with the cloakroom attendant this light and roomy bag won’t look out of place.  Priced at £205.00 from John Lewis

  1. I’d go for something in full leather such as the Visconti ones shown at: I’ve had my Visconti A4 workplace one for months now and its really wearing in well. Canvas ones are OK, but real leather are the best. Plus you can carry a laptop in it and no-one knows.
