FOR THE MODERN MAN- MAN BAGS

Hey yáll. I KNOW I KNOW *HIDING FACE* i have dissapeared from the face of the earth. Blogging was put on hold for a while. I had a pressing graduate project to complete that took most of time..but am so done!! YEAH!!! anyhoo. since am blogging after a month ( so embarrasing) am now back to blogging.

I was recently shopping with my male friend for Man Bags. i had done an earlier post on it but i was so excited to discover there are so many types. My mind was spinning with excitement. so as a come back to blogging hopefully continuously, my first blog post is going to be on a Part two post on Man Bags.

With my research i have discovered there are about seven types of Man bags

1) Modern Briefcase 

Modern Briefcase

This briefcase is an upgrade from the traditional briefcase. it is less boxy with more rounded corners as compared to the sharp edged traditional briefcase. The modern briefcase also comes with a strap which makes it easier to carry around. The modern Briefcase can be worn with Business attire.

2) Messenger Bag

Mostly made of Canvas, the messenger bag is a must have for students due to its versatility. It has a long sling strap so that it can be swung across your shoulder. This classic bag can also come in leather which gives it an edgy feel to it. The messenger bag can be worn when wearing casual clothes over the weekend or as a everyday bag for students.

3) Duffel Bag

This bag is mostly used when travelling due to its large size. It is convenient since it has a large carrying capacity. Casual business attire and general casual wear is best worn when carrying your duffel bag.

4) Tote Bag

A tote bag is an mosern approach to a briefcase. its classic leather exterior with its short hadles gives it a classy and simple look. The whole look exudes laid back masculinity to your casual business attire or casual weekend look. When carrying the Tote bag have a more Casual look on.

5) Satchel Bag

The satchel bag is the most casual bag that men can adorn. It can come in a variety of fabrics such as canvas or leather. My opnion if your satchel bag is leather, you can wear it with  offical attire to the office. Any other fabric can be worn  with the casual look.

6) Hobo Bag

The Hobo Bag is a smaller version of the messenger bag. its small carrying capacity makes it more appealing to the gentlemen since they carry less things in their bags. carrying it when wearing casual wear.

7) Man purse/ Murse

Man purse

OK..What can i say. ohh well. I have nothing against the man purse. But what i know most men would rather be caught dead than seen carrying a man purse. To carry a man Purse you got to have the Swag otherwise you will end up looking like your carrying your girl friends clutch bag. hehehehehe..no ofence to man purse lovers

WHAT TO CARRY IN YOUR MAN BAG

Most men do not like carrying items around. they would just have their wallet and phone and they are good to go. With a man bag you get more versatility as you can carry a few extra things such as an umbrella in case of a sudden downpour., a small cologne for those moments you want to freshen up, an extra sweater, a small snack.( women are well known for carrying small snacks to keep the munchies away) and for the tech suvey gentlemen, throw in your Ipad or Laptop. i cant really say what u should carry but just carry your essential things.

LOVE YOU ALL

XOXO
