One of the smartest metrosexual Wookies around, Chewbacca knew the benefits of carrying a bag!
In choosing a man bag, the criteria should be as follows: small, sleek, lightweight, and definitely not look like a purse. It’s a way to carry a little something extra that wouldn’t fit into the pockets of a pair of khakis without creating unsightly bulges. Briefcases, messenger bags and backpacks are not man bags. They are too large and bulky to carry on a daily basis without looking like you’re headed to school or work. Fannypacks are a no-no, unless you want to look like an ubergeek and repel women. Also, stay away from fancy designs, patterns, or the color pink. Flight, utility, and certain camera bags generally fall into the category of man bags.
Finding man bags that are worthy of carrying on a daily basis can be a bit of work, so we’ve created a list of the Top 10 Ultimate Metrosexual Man Bags to get you started!
