Bag Thursday: Man Up


The messenger bag has been a staple in men’s fashion for as long as we can remember. Whilst the recent rise in men’s bag styles gave way to many fresh new styles, the messenger bag will always be a tried-and-true classic and is a classic alternative to the backpack. Also known as ‘reporter’ bags or ‘cross body’ bags, this style has cropped up all over the SS15 runways, with Louis Vuitton continuing to champion the bag into FW15/16.

Aptly named, such style was designed after the bags traditionally carried throughout history by, well, whom else? Messengers, of course! But today’s messengers have had a slick make-over and now exude a hint of uptown sophistication.

The bags give off a slightly more casual vibe, and have taken on a whole new meaning on the urban sartorial scene, so you might want to think twice before pairing one with a suit. Crafted from Louis Vuitton Damier canvas, the graphite grey tone lends itself to the edgy appeal of the bag. Wear with slick street clothes and a bit of boyish attitude.
