It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle, especially if your eventful daily life involves congested commutes, concrete jungles, and gym memberships. So when it comes to lugging around your stuff, you want your bag to represent you and stand out in the crowd.
Men may not give it too much thought, but there is a process in picking the right bag. Style, practicality, function, and cost are just some of the factors that go into making the right decision. And for most men, the right bag means finding something with Indiana Jones ruggedness and James Bond sophistication. More importantly, however, it comes down to what you need the bag to do.
If you’re a freelancer, always on the go and needing to carry essentials with you, a roomy yet practically designed messenger bag or backpack may be the right choice. You’ll need to ensure that not only your laptop fits comfortably and securely in your bag, but that you also have enough room for other mobile devices, a paper notebook, earbuds, batteries, etc. Your workplace is wherever you are, and the functional capacity of your bag becomes critically important.
Perhaps, however, you’re a working professional with a minimal to and from work cargo requirement. In this case, a streamlined and elegant briefcase may be more to your suiting. A bag like this makes it known you’re about minimizing the nonsense and maximizing your results. You’ll also likely be drawn to carrying the bag by its handle rather than throwing a strap over your shoulder that may crimp your attire.
Do you need to carry more than work-related items? Maybe you’re looking to get away for the weekend or just need a solution for when you work out. In this case, a spacious duffel bag is a right fit, with room for clothes, spare shoes, and other essentials. This carry-all classic calls back to the glory days of travel and adventure, equal parts austere and elegant.
When it comes to selecting the right bag, no man should sacrifice function for style. At the end of the day, how you use your bag is important, be it supple leather backpacks or rugged leather briefcases for men. However, what your bag says about you speaks volumes.
Quality, craftsmanship, eco-friendliness, fair trade; these are characteristics that go hand in hand with strength, integrity, responsibility, and the right amount of bravado to make you stand out in the crowd. Your bag is as much an attention grabber as it is an apparatus, and you should not shy away from seizing that spotlight and let your story be heard. What you carry becomes your conversation. What do you want your bag to say for you?
