Men and their bags, where are they suddenly coming from?
There was when men barely set out to convey an attaché portfolio and out of nowhere we see men with bags everywhere. In all the cosmopolitan urban communities around the planet, men wear their packs gladly and most major brands offer a wide scope of sacks for men.
Let’s make a stride back… It most likely began in the seventies when men often conveyed a little satchel (a pochette). These little packs with a circle around the wrist with a couple of zippers that contained their wallet, cigarettes, lighter, drives permit, perhaps shades and some other little things. However, that were the seventies and start of the eighties….
During the last part of the eighties, nineties and start of the new thousand years sacks were practically missing in the roads, except… rucksacks. Anyway times changed when all fundamental devices like computerized camera’s, cell phones and PDA’s came on the market and men likewise expected to locate a reasonable method to convey their ‘things’. It appears hard to track down sufficient spot in the pockets of our pants and coats, so the (smart) men pack made its new entrance.
Italy, France and Asia started to lead the pack by accepting the little shoulder sack, that was worn around the body. In some cases these cross body packs were scarcely enormous enough to convey a couple of things. There is an immense assortment to browse, since any brand has a couple of models in their collection, but I like to make reference to this energetic pack by British company Mulberry. Very pleasant grained leather and fascinating lock framework with three options. The sack sells for €870 Euro and is accessible from the Mulberry shops or their site .
Let’s proceed onward to the notable portfolio or attaché that more youthful men lean toward wearing as cross body sacks (courier packs) or shoulder packs to accommodate their PC, papers and versatile phone. A great and all around made folder case is for example this huge Cartier pack from the Saddle-Stitched Range for men, in midnight hued grained calf skin that won’t ever become dated and conveys even your biggest PC with ease.
Inside are different pockets and everything discovers its place; the inner zipped pocket, the external zipped pocket, the holder for keys, the two pen holders, the two phone pockets (one small and one huge), the two pockets on the front and the two ample inside compartments, make this into a complete convenient office. An exceptionally exemplary sack, that will hinder you about €1700 Euro and is accessible from the Cartier Boutiques and concessionaires.
Lotuff has a more moderate and more modest arrangement, that can be conveyed across the body too. Simple, straight forward and not very attractive attaché for the more genuine among us. American made and accessible in chestnut, chocolate, yellow and dark for around €542 Euro or $680 USD from the Lotuff site .
Crocodile satchels are still lovely uncommon in the western piece of the world and are, despite their magnificence, even more acknowledged and appreciated in Asia. These sacks are genuine lookers and the one made by Santiago Gonzalez is positively no exception. No question that combined with the correct outfit, you capture everyone’s attention at your next gathering or presentation.
The sack is completely fixed with calfskin and has enough internal pockets to hold your laptop, papers and documents. You may wanna skirt an occasion or two, since the cost of lawful outlandish leathers isn’t gentle; €4200 Euro. Pick your #1 retailer from the Santiago Gonzales site .
The Blue pack by Ally Capellino, comes from London and it promptly got my eye. Although it won’t be for everybody and not match any outfit and season, it will steel the show when matched with pants and shoes in coordinating light colors. The Ally Capellino sack is made from vegetable-tanned leather to guarantee the tone creates a deeper tone with use. Dimensions are 35 x 26 cm and the site will charge your card for €549 Euro.
Louis Vuitton was right on time with advancing mens sacks and various styles of conventional mens packs. In the eighties the company as of now launched a mens line in dim green, from briefcases to stogie cases. New for men is the handbag, that was at that point presented for men by Louis Vuitton, some time ago, but that as of late is seen all the more often in the roads. Furthermore, no wonder the blend between a shopping pack and an attaché and can be utilized for both, office or leisure.
This Tadao sack, in graphite Damier, by Louis Vuitton that was made for men, has two internal pockets and a zipper on top to close it, so you’re sure your camera is still in there, when leaving Grand Central Station. Only accessible for around €1200 Euro from the Louis Vuitton Boutiques around the world.
In the interim this sort of pack is accessible from practically any great brand, in leather as well as canvas, but for the most part in a non closable design. Bally of Switzerland presented a significant intriguing model this year. It’s more sack than a handbag and an, albeit very enormous, total extraordinary pack for the city with it’s different pockets on the out and inside.
It appears as though it is propelled from the Steamer packs, yet it is obviously much smaller. Available in different tones, from Bally Boutiques and the Bally site , for around 950.- euro.
Basil Racuk, the additional conventional California based originator, has an own personal way of making bags. His shapes, associations, handles and twig-molded zipper pulls, set his ‘Arti’ assortment apart from the rest. All his packs and portfolios are made completely by hand from neighborhood cow, bison and even deer hides.
The Basil Racuk ‘JackBag’, that I chose from his collection, is an overall quite elite item with an extremely manly appearance. Its his littlest attaché kinda sack, that holds your PC or iPad, news paper and identifications; different internal pockets and an external pocket with an extra zip stow pocket underneath.
The downplayed plan breath quality and keeping in mind that the name of the craftsman is just obvious on the inside of the pack, they’re unmistakable from a distance. A Basil Racuk sack has an ideal casualness, for a more inventive reluctant man.
Very keen sack for individuals that don’t have an excessive amount to convey, and are looking for a more modest bag. Handmade in Northern California, by the creator himself and delivered on order. Production time can take up from half a month to an expense months.

Bags for men have arrived at the point that nearly anything goes, as long as it is helpful, gorgeous and masculine.
Italian brand Pierotucci comprehended that well indeed and delivered perhaps the most fascinating mens bags I have seen for the current year, a pack that was constantly intended to be for men; The exemplary Doctors sack, that specialists used to convey in the early years. This all around made exemplary pack, comes in tan, dim earthy colored or dark graceful vachetta leather, that develops more wonderful as it ages, its sturdiness and the quality is excellent and strong.
Not excessively little, not very huge and ideal to convey your iPad, telephone, camera and other accessories. The sack has inward pockets for identifications, tickets etc. Dimensions are 38.50 cm x 21.50 cm x 14 cm and to me, this is an incredible travel companion. The reality that it stays open, when it’s opened, makes the model simple to use.
A huge Canon 5D MKII in addition to 100mm focal point and extra’s, will fit effectively in there, and will make a wonderful entrée along the catwalk or during work at exhibitions. Pictured above is the tan form, the dark model exposes on the sofa in the back ground. 100% Made in Italy and accessible from the Pierotucci site for around €350 Euro.
Great packs compliments the clothes and individual styling of any man they look só obviously superior to the flimsy plastic sacks, where the clerk puts your books and magazines in. So next time you’re on Peking street, Via Napoleone, or Rue St. Honorée, waiting for your coffee or bistro latte, get an additional seat to put your pack on.
