With recent announcements by the Singaporean government to streamline safe distancing measures, companies and employees alike are set to return back to the office en masse. For men gearing up to head back to work, consider investing in a good everyday work bag. The best work bag not only serves the practical purpose of carrying your laptop and documents comfortably, but also goes a long way into helping you appear more professional. Whether you’re on the lookout for a trusty companion to carry back and forth to the office, or a versatile bag that transitions seamlessly into the weekend, there’s sure to be a perfect leather work bag for you.
1. Laptop Messenger Bags
A classic option, and something you can never go wrong with, is a sleek leather laptop bag. Ideally, a laptop bag that’s perfectly sized to carry your laptop and still have compartments to keep smaller looser items. Given the delicate nature of its contents, a laptop bag that possesses a degree of shock absorbency and padding goes a long way as well. For men opting to stand out from the crowd with a splash of class, Gnome & Bow’s 13-inch Hare & Tortoise Laptop Messenger Crossbody Sling Bag is a clear choice. Composed of 16oz waxed cotton canvas, the bag sports accents of full grain U.S cow leather which lends a refined and sophisticated look to any ensemble.
Used by men for centuries, there’s a reason why the briefcase is synonymous with the business gentleman. Not only does a briefcase look professional and help make a good impression in meetings, it also helps maintain a level of tidiness compared to crossbody straps. Traditionally hand carried, there is a zero percent chance that your suit will be wrinkled when toting this accessory around from meeting to meeting. Most people tend to associate briefcases as gaudy four cornered rectangular boxes, which isn’t necessarily true in this day and age. Take for example this 14-inch two-tone leather briefcase, made out of stylish full and pebble grain U.S cow leather. Built with function in mind, without forsaking any of its form factor, this bag is a must have for the discerning gentleman looking to make an impression.
With comfy padded straps and even weight distribution, backpacks are an excellent bag choice for heavier daily carries such as books, water bottles, laptops, and chargers. For men who carry all that they might need in a day and prefer to be prepared for any eventuality, there’s just no beating a well-made leather backpack. With a laptop slot and dedicated compartments for items such as your wallet or notebook, you can feel safe knowing everything is in the right place.
Men who find messenger bags cumbersome might also prefer carrying a backpack as well, especially one made of water-resistant 500D Cordura nylon. Lightweight and ready to brave the elements, rain or shine, this 16-inch Hitchhiker Laptop Backpack has got you covered.
