More and more men have been seen carrying some sort of bag around. Men’s bags have taken a turn for the best which has made it a necessity for your modern man. There has always been jokes surrounding the topic of men carrying a bag or as some may call it a “murse.” For those men who have still not picked up on the trend I feel the joke it on them. I am a huge fan of carrying a bag around because I tend to carry a lot of things when I go places. The idea of having my wallet, phone, chapstick, sunglasses, etc. in my pockets drives me crazy. Who wants to be uncomfortable with all of these items in their pockets? Not me, that’s for sure. The solution to this is simple, finding the right bag that suits the individual. Men’s bags have definitely come much further than your father or grandfather’s old briefcase over the years. With the variety of styles and patterns the options are endless.
I found this Fashionisto sporting an amazing modern day briefcase styled bag. The unique pattern and size of the bag is what stood out to me the most. This is the perfect example of how men bags have evolved from the past to modern day. With a fun take on the traditional camouflage print, this bag complements the outfit by providing a cool pattern as well as some color. Not only does the bag complement this Fashionisto’s outfit but it also made it easier for him to carry as much as he wants without having to worry about where to put it all. With his urban chic style, this Fashionisto was ready to take on the day. By mixing a chambray shirt with dark khaki shorts one gets the allusion of a casual short suit look. This pairing provides a clean sophisticated look with a twist. That twist comes in with his accessories, shoes and, of course, the bag. His retro Casio watch along with his rings gives us a mixture of old and new. Since he kept the outfit simple, he was able to carry a bold patterned bag.
Hint: When choosing a bag, keep in mind the purpose of the bag so you can determine the size and style. Once you have figured that out find one that fits your style so it can be easily matched with any outfit.
