I personally hate carrying a bag. All Disco Valante needs is his credit card, chap stick, car keys and phone. However, even though I don’t personally carry bags, I can appreciate them. I can understand when people live in urban environments and don’t have cars to throw their things in, a bag maybe necessary to make it through the day.
When I lived in Japan, it was not uncommon to see men carrying cool looking tote bags, commonly referred to as man bags. It was more uncommon to see men NOT carrying such an accessory.
A man bag can be a cool add-on to a killer wardrobe but, in America, we will not let go of the backpack. I cringe everytime I see a guy wearing a cool suit or nice clothing while carrying a back pack. I understand if you are doing some physical activity where a back pack maybe more appropriate for the wear and tear but not in the everyday commute of a stylish man.
If you must carry a bag throughout the day, get something cool. If you and the 6 year old kid next door have the same taste in bags, shame on you.
Am I being a total snob about this guys? Let Disco Valante know what you are thinking.
