‘Perfect bags for men’ sounds like a great idea for a website, which is just as well because it is. New to the internet this week, perfectbagsformen.com showcases the best backpacks, satchels, wallets, and messenger bags for men, and it’s all on one site. Perfect! The site is the sister company of the very successful Perfect Handbags website (www.perfecthandbags.co.uk) that has been selling bags for women, men and children since 2006. Evidently, the men’s section became so successful that it was decided in January 2012 to launch a site completely dedicated to bags and accessories for men with an extended product range. Having a specially designed website just for men means that the product range can be bigger, with an extensive range of leather satchels, canvas messenger bags, laptop and iPad bags, holdalls, backpacks and accessories. You can still expect the same high quality of product, and of course their customer service is still a top priority.
Perfect Bags For Men have built a thriving company and reputation on their extensive range of bags and an unbeatable customer service. For instance, they deliver goods on the day they’re ordered, and you can book a same day one hour timed slot for an extra £3.95. They don’t charge for standard postage, and they have a no quibble returns policy – you don’t even have to give them a reason if you don’t want to. They believe that each item is excellent value for money and a pleasure to use. Featured in the Daily Mail this weekend, PBFM are definitely a company to watch. To give you a heads up on their products, here’s a selection of what took my fancy:
