In 1999, Joey Tribbiani, Matt LeBlanc’s Friends character, introduced the “man bag” – a carry-all worn on the shoulder. Many men – including us – laughed. Over a decade later, after the introduction of all manner of portable electronics, fitness gear and other accoutrements, we find ourselves sporting these functional bags ourselves. Who’s laughing now, huh? The carry-all has evolved to become an accepted component of a man’s wardrobe. We like this one from Tod’s, which lets you stow bulky items like your laptop alongside a spare kit for the gym and some incidental shopping items – all neatly organised and quickly accessible, thanks to its various compartments.
