I’m always on the lookout for men’s bags that are a little bit left-of-center, and with Master-Piece Co’s fun printed men’s backpacks, I believe I’ve found just that. These Master-Piece Co Printed Backpacks are like catnip for menswear bros – they’re brightly printed but with retro touches and leather trim that give them an air of some kind of amorphous authenticity, they’re all made in Japan (as I understand it, Japan is very important to menswear bros), and two of them are made in collaboration with other indie design brands. They tick all of the boxes. I can hear the menswear street style photos being snapped as we speak.

I jest a bit, of course, but these are great backpacks in their own right. The beach-scene backpack in particular, designed in conjunction with textile designer Nowartt, adds something lighthearted-but-high-quality to the current men’s bag market that I’m very happy to see. The camo option is probably the one that will appeal to the widest cross-section of menswear consumers, and the handkerchief-print backpack will probably be of chief interest to younger dudes (the fact that it’s the least expensive of the three doesn’t hurt.
