You Said: No to Bags for Men

June 1st, 2009


waxwear-great-point-messenger-bag_053109We asked: Guys, would you carry a Bag?

You said:  No to Bags for Men, with a 62% to 38% vote.

Style tip? We know that bags aren’t for all guys, but we do encourage you to give them some consideration.  It’s the 21st century–and you have BlackBerries, iPhones, iPods, cell phones, wallets, and keys to carry around.  Not to mention any reading material or anything you need for work.  And you don’t have to cram all of this into your pockets if you carry a bag.  For casual occasions, we’d recommend a messenger bag (a rugged option is shown at left) or a backpack (so long as it’s not the one you carried during your college days).  For work, the briefcase is the standard.  And for weekends away, try a leather or canvas duffel or carryall.

Next question: Gladiator Sandals are a loud shoewear trend that has managed to keep itself top-of-mind for the last few seasons.  They certainly make a statement, but they’re not for everybody. Tell us, would you wear Gladiator Sandals?   Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Probably won’t cave on flat gladiators, but I love my chunky platform glads!

    In the army they have map cases… The mailman has a mailbag… Bike messengers have messenger bags… So what’s the problem, then, with your average Joe on the street carrying a bag?

    What about stylish laptop bags? I’m almost always using my laptop bag.

    I’ve seen really thin, emo-hipster types pulling off LV Speedys (probably 35s). It’s a daring look that only a select few can pull off. As for the next poll…I’d much rather see some guy awkwardly carry a Speedy or Cambon than have to endure the sight of one more pair of flat gladiator sandals. *BARF*
