It’s that time of year to think about the men in our lives: Father’s Day is just around the corner. So even if your dad or hubby is not a bag snob, this is your opportunity to make him one, and one good bag is all it takes. Every man needs some sort of bag – either a briefcase, computer bag, duffel, or wallet – so here are some hipster styles that will still keep him manly.
For a totally laid-back, durable, yet young, stylish look, the D&G Canvas Shoulder Bag is perfect. In gray or brown canvas with silver color hardware this is great for the real informal, fun guy. D&G Canvas Bag at Neiman Marcus for $440.
The Berluti “Tela” Briefcase, in canvas with leather trim, is a classic with a casual twist. The canvas takes a bit of the seriousness away, making it less formal while modern and fun. It’s for those who refuse to conform to corporate structure (perhaps a screenwriter!). Berluti “Tela” Briefcase at Barneys New York for $2,670.
A fabulous wallet is a must for all, especially a Valextra “Grip 6″ credit card holder and card case. A bright green wallet is always a nice surprise. Help your man let loose, have some fun, and get rid of that black boring wallet. In soft vitello leather, with a money clip, and card slots, this is surely the anecdote to boring. Valextra wallet at Barneys New York for $380.
Jack Spade’s take on the contemporary briefcase is for the organized professional who likes a leather bag, but with a more casual feel. It has a sleek look, but the removable shoulder strap keeps it from looking too solemn. Jack Spade Briefcase at Barneys New York for $550.
For an ultra-cool messenger bag, the “L’Insouciant” by Berluti is the one. The Scritto-printed leather-flap front makes this one hot bag. Any man who wants to look like Indiana Jones will love it, which is every man! Berluti “L’Insouciant” Messenger at Barneys New York for $2,260.
Whichever one you pick you can’t go wrong – just don’t get him too spoiled – you always want to be the ultimate bag snob in the family!
