First I have to say this might offend some of you and you might me thinking I don't use a man bag. I thought the same thing when I began doing research. I thought to myself; "Man bag? Men carry briefcases to work." I began doing research on what a man bag is considered. I looked up the definition and although it varies, some I can't post, I will for the purpose of this blog post call it a fabric or leather displaying a brand. That's kind of true. Man bags have come a long way. It is now considered any type of associates in which one puts content into. Such as a wallet, briefcases, backpack, card case.
For centuries men have carried a briefcase to work. Now it is acceptable for them to have several options. In this search to find out the difference between the classes, yes classes still exíst that's why there are different price points. If this offends you let me say I didn't create them. I'm just reporting them. Ask a dog. Is one dog the same as another? No! One man bag is not the same as another.
Here are some photographs of Man Bags. Designers. Let's start with well known designers.
