Like the majority of fashion sites, we tend to stick to the ladies when we look at what celebrities are wearing and carrying. Women have far more options, after all, and we make up the vast majority of the population that’s interested in the details of high-end handbags. We like to think of ourselves as completists, though, which means that it’s time for us to plug a significant hole in our coverage: famous dudes who love bags.
As menswear has grown, so have the ranks of men who are unabashed about their preferences for a fancy leather good or two. Gay, straight, femme, butch – there’s a manbag (or women’s bag – many of these dudes don’t discriminate) for every famous man who deigns to carry his own things, as long as he’s willing to pony up the cash. From Johnny Weir’s Balenciagas and Birkins to Kanye West’s customized backpacks, check out the full array below.
