The Tote Bag Is the Ultimate Man Bag

Fashion has made some serious headway when it comes to gender stereotypes in recent years. Categories that were previously ruled out for a particular gender have been blown wide open, with gender-neutral styling dominating Fashion Month this year. But, some vestiges of yesteryear still remain and one that really bugs us is guys & bags.

Pouches definitely broke the ice, finally freeing up valuable pocket space and showing guys that carrying a small bag is a life-changing decision, but there’s still some murkiness when it comes to mid-size bags. We’re firm believers in the tote bag, but we’re not talking about the throwaway canvas versions that litter your cupboards. No, we’re talking about serious, luxury tote bags.

Big enough to fit everything you need for a day, but not so large that they’ll hinder your daily errands, luxury tote bags provide the style and substance needed to really crack the guys vs. bags dilemma. Below, with the help of Browns, we’ve rounded up 10 luxury tote bags for men that will change the way you live.
