Totes for boys


There’s a distinct difference between your brain on the sunshine effect with pool parties, warm weather and when your brain connects with fall and winter time. The weather changes, coats are a must have and hot chocolate becomes your best friend. To add to this change of scenery, you become more amped up for a ready to work state of mind. The right accessory can be a life changing moment. Since the 1990s, designers have marketed a more diverse range of accessory bags for men. The names man-purse and murse have been used quite often. The designs are typically variations on backpacks or messenger bags, and have either a masculine or a more unisex appearance, although they are often more streamlined than a backpack and less bulky than a briefcase. It seems the demand is rather strong after several years of popularity, possibly supported by the growing range of modern electronic devices men carry with them.

Men's designer bags are produced by well-known companies such as Prada, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Bottega Veneta in a variety of shapes and sizes. The need to organize one's belongings is universal; thus handbags exist in differing forms in cultures around the world. People have been quite clever in thinking of ways to use the materials at hand to create their bags; this shows the true evolution that is the man bag. Even if you are sporting a perfectly tailored suit, you can sneakily get away with carrying a bag. That’s because the humble tote bag has transformed, from a drab briefcase old fashioned style to a luxurious go all over, do anything carryall. These roomy new bags have all the functionality you need to survive a day of work, gym, and adult sleepover. And with classic silhouettes, graphics, and a variety of cool textures, they have enough style to keep heads rolling for months while living it up in the city.


 When it comes to fashion it is always important to experiment and try something not traditional. Men are starting to adapt more when it comes to using accessories to complete a stylish look. Fall fashion week was no exception to the chic boys turning out some nice styles. The best part about LCM was defiantly the boys! Oh I mean the totes were dope this season. Back in the day, you were told to always match your briefcase to your suit. For 2016, that has changed in the best way possible. To hell with matching when you can bring your own flavour to the dish by mixing it up. Most importantly, go with your gut when it comes to accessorizing.

Part of the appeal is having a bag that never looks out of place. You can carry one straight from your day job and transition to a night time chill factor. Be different gents, when it comes to trying new things being bold is always on the menu. If you are willing to wear pinstripe trousers or crazy blazers with a graphic effect, then you can handle tossing a snakeskin tote over your shoulder.

Here is a style of tote for every type of guy who needs something to make many lads totally envy you on the street.

Totes are not just for women anymore, instead of carrying around a typical briefcase. Men are starting to take the more casual route and stick with a good old fashioned tote. 

From traditional neutral colours, to unusual patterns. Having a fun styled tote can speak volumes about your personality.
