By Shuo Feng, Research Executive at Reuter Communications If you’ve heard of the 4th largest city in China at all, then pandas, chili and hot pot will have likely been its stereotypical icons. But Chengdu, designated by China’s state council as the country’s centre of logistics, commerce, finance, science and technology is the engine for […]

Let’s take a moment to reflect on the state of men’s fashion: a (distinctly un-cringeworthy) pink velvet tux at the Oscars!  Goldman Sachs bankers set free from ties! Made-to-measure tailoring accessible from your phone! We are living in a golden age of menswear. We’ve seen suits loosen up, trainers earn an equal footing with derbies and denim gone bespoke. The latest evolution to hit the men’s department? The next generation of men’s bags. All of the recent developments in menswear reflect shifts in how we live our lives. This is especially apparent in the bags we use to transport all of the modern essentials, from laptops and tablets to ear-buds and battery packs. According to market research from NPD Group, 25 percent of fashion accessories’ growth in the first 10 months of last year is owed to what the American’s refer to as fanny packs alone. “‘Waist bags’ as we now call them,” an NPD analyst told The Wall Street Journal, “are the fastest growing segment in the men’s accessories market.” While bum bags, a novelty that can veer into laughable territory, are a style move best reserved for advanced fashionphiles, they’re indicative of a surge in options beyond the briefcase. Ladies have long enjoyed the benefits of having a diverse stable of bags: a big tote for running around town, a mid-size option for work, something compact for going out. Now guys are getting to enjoy an equally broad variety of decidedly masculine accessories. Where man-bag was once a dirty word (and one we’re still not especially fond of), the fact is that men’s bags have never been better. We’ve rounded up 12 of the best pieces to build a wardrobe of bags for every occasion: the modern briefcase, the tote, the cross-body and the handheld.   The Modern Briefcase Porter-Yoshida & Co. Porter-Yoshida & Co. Photo: Courtesy Porter-Yoshida & Co. Much in the way that the most modern tailoring eschews stiff formality in favour of unstructured silhouettes, the best new briefcases are set apart by their softer, more casual form. This bag from the cult Japanese brand Porter (£238.33) renders a classic silhouette in flexible, utilitarian nylon — stylish and practical in equal measure. Louis Vuitton Louis Vuitton Photo: Courtesy of Louis Vuitton Virgil Abloh, that wizard of streetwear, has injected Louis Vuitton with a hefty dose of hypebeast cool since taking the reins as creative director of menswear. Even a traditional briefcase, like this one inspired by vintage steamer bags (£2,710), is hip enough to give the most conservative office attire a frisson of edginess. Moore & Giles Moore & Giles Photo: Courtesy of Moore Giles While appearances count for a lot, at least when it comes to what you’re wearing, sometimes what’s inside is equally important. Such is the case with Moore & Giles’ tech briefcase (around £544), equipped with an integrated battery pack and charging port. The outside, made from a buttery-soft Japanese glove leather, is equally impressive.   The Tote Tom Ford Tom Ford Photo: Courtesy of Tom Ford This handsome carry-all (around £2030), in olive canvas with luxe leather and brass accents, is a bag MVP. Like a refined L.L. Bean tote, its generous size means it can schlep everything from your gym gear to files to everything required for a weekend away. And, it’ll do it all with exceeding elegance . Bottega Veneta Bottega Veneta Photo: Courtesy of Bottega Veneta Daniel Lee, Bottega Veneta’s recently-appointed creative director, is giving the brand’s exquisitely-crafted wares a jolt of freshness. As in this tote (£ 6,825), which supersizes Bottega Veneta’s signature woven leather to bold, graphic proportions . It’s a timeless style that makes a brilliant alternative to a briefcase. Loewe Loewe Photo: Courtesy of Loewe Who says a hard-working bag can’t look good? A stylish riff on utility-minded tool bags, this tote (around £870) offers an array of functional details: ample storage pockets, expandable side zips, and adjustable straps to attach to a suitcase or accommodate a beach blanket. It’s an ideal bag for running errands or heading off on outdoor pursuits.   The Crossbody Prada Prada Photo: Courtesy of Prada Unlike a traditional messenger bag, which tends to be bigger and bulkier, this kind of reporter’s bag (£ 1,220) is slim enough to be worn under a coat. As the name implies, it’s sized to hold all the essentials for a man on the go — notepad and tape recorder not required. Smythson Smythson Photo: Courtesy of Smythson If you are going to dip your toe into the white-hot waters of fanny-packs, opt for something with elevated materials and a sleek silhouette. Smythson’s take on the bag du jour (£550.00) is appealingly grownup, with cross-grained leather and palladium hardware. Pro tip: sling it over your shoulder or strap it across your chest– just don’t actually wear it on your back side. Frank Clegg Frank Clegg Photo: Courtesy of Frank Clegg For those times when you don’t need a full-size bag but don’t want to bulk up your pockets, this crossbody (around £450) is perfectly proportioned to hold the basics: phone, book, water bottle, etc. While it may sound an awful lot like a purse, its solid brass hardware and naturally patinated leather has an air of Indiana Jones swagger. Plus, aren’t we past feeling insecure about our masculinity?   The Handheld Gucci Gucci Photo: Courtesy of Gucci Somewhere between a wallet and a portfolio, a versatile pouch will leave you wondering what you’ve been doing without one for so long. With a cheeky nod to the Yankees, Gucci’s pouch (£ 705) provides organisation inside a larger bag, in addition to being a chic vessel for transporting documents.   Hermès Hermes Photo: Courtesy of Hermes Large enough to hold an iPad, notebook, change, and keys, this understated pouch is an impressive multitasker. The superlative calfskin and minimalist design make Hermés’ leather folder (around £1060) polished enough to bring to the boardroom without sacrificing the functionality that will make it invaluable for everyday. Valextra Valextra Photo: Courtesy of Valextra Legend has it that Valextra’s founder designed this bag (£1,290) after observing a taxi driver who kept his valuables in a small box — a stylish yet practical solution to one man’s storage needs. Sculptural and discreet, it’s the perfect size for heading out to drinks or dinner after work.
