It’s a given that every metropolitan man has more than enough baggage. City life inextricably lends to the kind of frantic preparation which results in several if not many bags. From trains to buses to bikes everyone is on the move, and for every kind of travel there is a bag to go with it. Minimizing the list of essentials for the traveling man comes down to choosing lifestyle bags. Whether you’re a business man who goes from work to gym or a DJ who goes from sun down to sun up every man needs the right bag to make it through the city.

Briefcases are not just for the office. The stiff uncompromising archetype has been moved to the back of the shelf as sportier, loosely structured briefcases hit the scene. Those with a lust for luxe might stick with all leather but the hustling man might want to go for woven fabrics with leather accents.

Practical and professional bags are work appropriate while offering travel appropriate options like muti-sub compartments and easy to clean fabrics.
