Men tend to have a lot to carry these days. Free yourself of cluttered, over-stuffed pockets by getting yourself a handsome and handy bag.


Modern bags are descendants of a limp satchel used in the 14th century for carrying money and valuables. It was called a "budget", derived from the Latin word "bulga."

How to Wear It

A ruggedly stylish tote or briefcase has always been (and will always be) a simple and utilitarian way to schlep your stuff from here to there. But a lot of young guys are opting for backpacks lately to lighten the load.

What to Look for

Sturdy stitching, quality fabric that resists stains and moisture, and durable hardware.
