Best Tote Bags For Work And Leisure

advertisement
More grown-up than backpacks, more modern than shoulder bags and more stylish than briefcases – this is how fashion editor Terence Lee views the tote. “Such bags are not the most practical for most men, since their hands are not free while carrying it,” he admits. But this type of carrier conveys good taste. “A guy with a tote shows he dares to be different and is more in tune with current trends.” Stay ahead of the sartorial curve with this selection of men’s totes – they are just a click away at luxury online retailer Luisaviaroma.com.
 
1. Burberry
With its zipped top and split-front design, this nylon-leather item from Burberry is not strictly a tote – but is cut to look like one. If you need time to get used to the minimalist aesthetic of totes, this would make a fine first step.

$1,425*, available at Luisaviaroma.com

2. Basso&Brooke Studio
Entirely handmade in the UK, this printed leather tote from Basso&Brooke Studio is just the bag for the flamboyant. It’s also a perfect example of order within chaos: The wild patterns clash and then simultaneously fall into place. Moreover, the loudness of the prints contrasts nicely with the plain brown side and back panels, giving the accessory a measure of balance and legitimacy in most settings outside of dance halls.

$641*, available at Luisaviaroma.com

3. Bonastre
A perfect substitute for your current briefcase, this structured, vegetable-tanned leather tote bag from Bonastre features a stylish design detail that’s functional as well: There’s a metal clasp closure on its top panel. That it has such an item makes it unique and lets you make a bold style statement in the office without affecting your masculine credentials.

$1,358*, available at Luisaviaroma.com

4. Dsquared
The most casual of the lot, this tote from Dsquared is constructed from wool flannel with leather trim, handles and base. The rough texture and tartan plaid give an unfussy, relaxed look best identified with lazy weekend mornings. It’s also foldable – meaning you can pack it into your luggage on vacation. “Tote bags have evolved so much over the years that there’s one for every need,” says Terence. We think this is definitely one for the road.

$584*, available at Luisaviaroma.com

5. Alexander McQueen
Made in Italy, this minimalist number from Alexander McQueen is the quintessential leather tote for men. More specifically, it’s made from full-grain nappa leather and features two side patch pockets and an internal zip pouch. It exudes understated class, so pair this with an all-black or black-and-off-white outfit to any posh evening event.

$1,541* available at Luisaviaroma.com
