Bags are not just for women. Nor does a man have to go and find the most manly purse at the local department store. Men’s bags are masculine, attractive, and are extremely useful. They are great for carrying things to meetings or to a game, and even work well when a man needs to have a bag to carry things for his young child, but doesn’t want a diaper bag. Whatever bag you want to carry, choose one of the classic men’s bags and you can’t go wrong.
The briefcase is probably the most traditional of the men’s bags. They haven’t changed much since they were invented, except that they are no longer boxy and sharp-cornered. They have lots of compartments, buckles, and usually a leather exterior that makes them good and tough.
