Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag

Men and bags are finally starting to get along with each other. From document holders to the man clutch, weekenders to the holdall, satchels to the briefcase, and the backpack to the 24 hour. 

It’s all going down! We’re giving women a run for their money in the style accessories stakes and for the first time in a long time, it is widely accepted. 

With this in mind, we’ve picked out a few of our favourite types of bags for the Spring/Summer 2014 season for you to gawk at.

Santa Monica collection from Tumi 

Celebrating artisanal design and elegant styling, TUMI introduces the Santa Monica collection of men’s lifestyle accessories. Inspired by the coastal living of Southern California, the collection pairs TUMI’s core values of design excellence with an enhanced sense of style to present an assortment of modern classics. 

“By combining beautiful leathers with our iconic ballistic nylon, I wanted to bring elements of TUMI’s heritage of craftsmanship and design to the forefront of each style. The Santa Monica collection demonstrates beauty in simplicity,” said George Esquivel, TUMI Creative Director.

Leather Satchel Company Satchel 

A traditional vintage British style hand-crafted in Great Britain by artisan leather-workers this men’s version of the classic satchel comes with a full 5-year craftsmanship guarantee, 21-Day no-quibble and 100% money back satisfaction guarantee. We even got one with our MWS initials on it!

Osprey London Holdall 

The Crosby Elephant Grain leather holdall from Coggles is perfect for a sneaky weekend break to Paris or Milan. Made from robust, textured cowhide leather, the bag is fitted with protective studs on the bottom, as well as boasting a removable base for a slouchier look. There’s also an external, vertically zipped pocket that’s ideal for storing the man’s essentials... an iPad or a newspaper.

WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie 

This season, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie invites us to imagine an artist who divides his time between a studio loft in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood and a serene glass house perched atop the Baltic seaside. Inspired by both the bustling city and lush natural beauty, his ideas begin to take form as art imitates life. Our clear favourites of this collection is the splash camo print designs.
