What’s in your Man bag /men’s messenger bag/satchel?
The contents in a man bag can tell a lot about a person. A computer indicates a business man who works on the go. A leather journal may suggest a creative person who likes to keep a notebook handy for whenever they get inspiration. Furthermore, a messy bag with random objects suggests someone who lives a chaotic and busy life. A leather satchel bag is an extension of who you are and the life you lead, so it’s important you choose the right one.
It’s not surprising that men and women carry different items in their bags. Men tend to carry more electronic items like their iPhone or computer. This seems to be down to men’s lust for technology, as these gadgets can be bulky. We no longer want to stuff our pockets full of items as bulging pockets just don’t look right.
The beauty of having a leather shoulder bag is that it can be any size to suit your life needs. If you are a business man who needs to fit paperwork, laptop and spare clothes for the gym, a large briefcase with extra compartments would help you achieve this. If you are looking for a subtle bag to fit your essentials and nothing more, a small messenger bag would make the perfect choice!
