When it comes to deciding on a bag for a man, it can become quite overwhelming. There are so many things that you have to consider, such as style, the way it will be utilized and comfort. A man has to feel confident about carrying the bag, or he will never commit to using it. Although, the fashion world has full embraced men carrying bags, there are still some who have not accepted this idea with open arms.
A man’s bag should be highly functional, and cater to his lifestyle. Otherwise, the bag will collect dust in the closet because he is not confident and comfortable with the style that the bag possesses. Nor is there enough functionality to the bag to persuade him to give it a try.
Here are some great choices to consider when wanting to find the right bag for a man.
The briefcase has had a major overhaul since its debut in the fashion industry. Briefcases are no longer just bulky hard cases that are not stylish. A briefcase is a great choice for those who live a professional lifestyle, carry lots of documents to and from work, and/or carry a computer along with them.
When wanting a casual appearance, a nice leather briefcase will do the trick. If you require a little more sophistication in your look, then leather is the ideal choice. However, keep in mind that even a nice canvas briefcase goes great for the dressy professional as well.
If you are looking for an alternative to the briefcase, the messenger bag is a great fit. The messenger offers tons of organization, and is highly functional.
The Medium-Sized Duffle
For those men who lead active lifestyles, a duffle bag is a perfect fit. Great for the gym, as it has tons of room and is very masculine. The Duffel is easy to throw all your stuff in and run out the door. Plus, all your items are very accessible anytime you need to get them.
Great for men who have a lot of office type supplies, such as books, notepads, art stuff, camera equipment, ipods and lunch. When deciding to go with a tote, make sure to choose a material that possesses ruggedness so it gives off a manly vibe. A tote bag, much like the duffle, is easy to access on the run. Everything can be tossed into the oversized compartment, and away you go. Typically, there is a front pocket, which will make it easy to access items that are needed often.
Other bag options for a man include a backpack and traveler. Backpacks have been around for ages, and seem to be a comfortable choice. They are convenient and can look very manly. The traveler is perfect for the man who takes lots of business trips. There is more than enough room to pack for a few days, as well as bring all the important documents needed for your business endeavors.
If you are a man who is ready to get a bag to help with your daily commutes, the main thing is you have to feel comfortable. You do have choices, so take the time to see what type of bag will fit into your lifestyle. If you don’t feel comfortable, then you will never carry your bag choice.
