The man bag today is a respectable part of any man's wardrobe. A good-looking bag offers practicality, serves all your stuff-carrying needs and enables you to add some edge and masculinity to your looks. Here are 5 man bag styles that will be a great addition to any man’s wardrobe.

The Briefcase

The briefcase has been around for quite sometime. Unlike bulky briefcases of the past, today's cases tend to be smaller, softer, lighter, and you want to look for pockets to keep everything organized.

The briefcase sends a message that you mean business. It is general most suitable in classy looks, paired with suits.

If you want to give your look a little edge, opt for a briefcase in an unexpected color.

The Tote Bag

A tote is the modern approach to the classic briefcase but one that won't come off as too corporate. The basic design renders the tote a classic status, while the long handles give it a contemporary edge.

Carry the tote bag with business casual clothes. It will add a touch of laid-back masculinity to any casual work wear.

A canvas tote will give a smart casual outfit a more relaxed feel.

The Messenger Bag

Also known as satchels and shoulder bags, messenger bags are very popular due to their functionality and practicality. They're perfect for college, work, commute, and the selection of messengers is probably the biggest on the market.

Invest in a leather satchel if you're going for a more refined, classic style.

Canvas types give off a more relaxed aesthetic and lend themselves very well to casual looks.

The Holdall

A classic holdall is perfect for such occasions as travel, business and gym use.

Holdalls give off a very masculine vibe and look best paired with classic masculine pieces – shirts, suits and classic style outerwear. The military inspired trend is perfect for integrating a holdall.

The selection of holdalls today is quite extensive, although you cannot go wrong with a sleek leather version.

The Backpack

Backpacks are no longer just for lugging school books. Times have changed, and the backpack has become a necessary accessory.

The canvas backpack will add a casual yet effortless touch to your look.
