Decades ago we didn’t have man bags. Then I reckon women got together and designed them so that they didn’t have to keep carrying around men’s’ stuff all the time. As there are now so many different types of man bags, we are looking at reporter bags for men. Here’s our pick of the bunch:
We like this man bag because it will age well the more you use it. Made from waxed cotton with trims of oiled-leather, you get a pocket at the front for easy access and inside there are 3 extra pockets. Features an adjustable shoulder strap. Available in navy and olive (shown).
This man bag might be as cheap as chips but it doesn’t look like it. We like the contrasting piping on the edges and the faux leather makes it appear more expensive than it really is. Lots of extra pockets inside and features an adjustable shoulder strap.
This is more of a mini man bag but good for clubbing and nights out when you want to carry something but still look stylish at the same time. It’s very versatile as you can wear it several ways; either around your neck or as a crossover satchel. Comes in Tommy’s red, white and blue colours or available in 3 other colour combos.
This is a classy design from M&S that won’t set you back a fortune. Features a leather-look finish with an easy opening that simply folds over with a magnetic closure and hidden zip fastening. Also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap.
Bargain time here as this man bag is half price. Gorgeous soft-touch leather but don’t be fooled, it is tough as well as smooth. Durable buffalo leather that ages with distinctive marks to develop its own character over time. Stylish and durable.
This company has over 100 years’ experience of crafting leather goods which is pretty evident when you see the quality of their products. This reporter bag comes from their Panama Collection and uses cross-grain leather which has a lovely textured look, alongside foil embellishments. Available in navy, black or grey (shown).
Described as ‘practical and stylish’ this is an amazing price for a leather bag of this quality. We particularly like the design which isn’t too fussy and keeps the bag classic. Inside you get a large main compartment and a smaller pocket and it comes with a strong shoulder strap.
Another chance to bag a bargain here. It is the colour that drew us to this man’s bag. That and the leather. Gorgeous buffalo, handcrafted by experts to get the best finish you can imagine. You get two pockets on the outside and in the inside and it also features an adjustable canvas strap.
Simple, understated and no fuss. That’s what we love about this man bag. You can carry it to work, in the evening for drinks with your mates, or to a show. It will go with anything. The front closes with a magnetic clasp and the exterior has one main pocket with several smaller one inside. Comes with an adjustable shoulder strap. Best of all, the material is a more sustainable polyurethane made to protect the environment.
