Different Types of Man Bags

1.) Briefcase

Briefcases are probably one of the oldest form of “acceptable” handbags for men. Modern-day briefcases, however, have evolved a great deal since the days of your father/lawyer's boxy/sharp-cornered case. 

They’re no longer boxy –in fact, that’s about the only traditional element discarded in the modern briefcase. The classic shape (without the sharp corners), buckles, leather exterior, and practical interior compartments help make this bag a timeless addition to any working-man’s wardrobe.
2.) Messenger Bag

Aptly named, the messenger bag is designed after the bags traditionally carried throughout history by — whom else? Messengers.

Often made from canvas and swung across the shoulder, messenger bags have taken on a whole new meaning in urban fashion. 

Banana Republic's Messenger Bag

From students with canvas bags to urban hipsters with modern leather bags, the messenger’s laid-back style will always have a classic casual flair, but today’s leather messenger tote also exudes a hint of uptown sophistication.

3.) Holdall

Any traveling man needs a holdall for those weekend jaunts or three-day business trips. Big, bulky luggage has transformed into sleek, stylish holdalls (or carryalls).

Its design is inspired by the duffel bag, but its predominantly leather exterior and more refined appearance attribute a classic look to this practical tote.

4.) Tote

A tote is the modern approach to the classic briefcase. Resembling an artisan’s bag, the tote is the utmost in casual business attire.
Its basic design and usual soft leather exterior allots it a classic status, while its long handles give it a contemporary edge. 

I use a tote to deliver packages to various U.S. Post Offices every other day. It's convenient to toss a few items into the bag — please note, not intended for privacy.

In other words, not to be used to transport illegal items.

5.) Newsboy Bag

Like the advent of the newsboy cap, the newsboy bag is a classic-style that has become synonymous w/ men’s casual wear. It’s similar to the messenger bag’s style, but its traditional canvas exterior makes it a little less formal than the latter.

 This bag-style is perfect for the student on the go, as it makes a fashion statement and exudes more masculinity and style savvy than a knapsack.

6.) Camera Bag

A smaller version of the messenger bag, a camera bag is a longer rectangular bag that is usually meant to be strapped across the shoulders.

Convenient for tourists but good for any man on the go, a camera bag is a discreet but severely stylish way to carry around your gadgets — simple style w/ a whole lot of function.

  1. Those previous animal skin communicating luggage lacked several of the innovations and conveniences of the newer ones, however the lineage is evident.
