Tote your goods in a dapper briefcase
Two guys walk into an office together, one toting a backpack he was given after joining the gym and the other carrying a smart leather briefcase. All the ladies in the room silently agree that Mr Briefcase definitely has his life together, and that he would make a good catch.
Men don’t have as many bag options as their female counterparts, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take your accoutrements seriously – a good leather briefcase is an investment piece you’ll have for many years. And the best part is that even if you only throw your wallet, keys and a sandwich in it each morning, it still exudes an air of style and professionalism.
When choosing a briefcase, you’ll need to ask yourself what colour you would prefer and if a shoulder strap is required. This will help you narrow down your options from the start of the process. A timeless look will mean you’ll be toting the same briefcase for many years to come, but something in a bright hue will make a bold style statement.
Locally, the city is the best place to shop for a briefcase, with Hunt Leather, Rodd & Gunn and Mitchell Ogilvie all stocking striking options.
