What is this site about?
I believe that the bag you carry is as important as the suits, clothes, shoes, or jackets you wear. It is your most important accessory and is so often neglected.
Would you be caught dead using a child’s Velcro wallet or wearing an 100% polyester tie? Your ballistic nylon messenger bag sure does look a lot like that child’s wallet. I’m sure it looks great while you are barreling through traffic on a bike but do you want to take it to a job interview?
Just like shoes every man needs a couple choices to be dressed appropriately.
You and I have the same objective: to find you a bag that elevates your style. You want this because your appearance matters to you. I want this because it pains me to see otherwise well dressed men carrying neon man purses and sporty backpacks.
Some of the links on this site are affiliate links and I make some money from them and from advertising. This helps me continue to create content an is not my primary focus. I only recommend products that I believe in.
I love things that last. Splurge on an expensive bag and use it for the rest of your life. It will age beautifully and serve you well. I also love quality. Things that you touch and use every day are things worth investing in. If it makes you smile every time you touch it then it’s worth almost any cost.
I dislike name brand fanaticism and logos. Having an innocuous logo somewhere on the bag is fine. Plastering the logo all over your bag is like screaming “Look at what I can afford”.
