In our past two Gossip Girl discussions, we’ve had at least one poster ask about the messenger that Dan sports in the series – it’s vintage-looking, non-bulky, and actually pretty chic (for a manbag). And truth be told, I have no idea what it is or where it came from.

So this post was supposed to come last week, but this little thing called life happened and poof!, Father’s Day is right around the corner. Luckily my father along with most others still loves and accepts gifts a few days late.

Louis Vuitton Utah Leather Kiowa Tote

As we continue traveling, we continue shopping for a new travel bag. Vlad and I were tempted by a 50 cm Hermes Haut A Courroie (HAC), but it was just too big, yet his current messenger is just too small. We are like Goldilocks, we need something just right.

When you travel it is important to make sure your man carries a bag along too. My handbag gets heavy from long days of walking and I always need a helping hand. Vlad carries his Louis Vuitton Taiga Dersou Messenger Bag with him and I begin to unload my unwanted items.

I have been obsessing over this Louis Vuitton man bag since the second our favorite Bal Harbour SA ‘J’ allowed me to lay my eyes on it. The Mini Grimaud from the Bequia line is the ultimate, sophisticated man bag that inherits bold features from its vintage sister Grimaud (which was recently brought back to life in Damier canvas, without the traditional shoe inserts, though).

When it comes to man bags I very partial to Louis Vuitton. This preference may be blamed on the LV Dersou being my very first high-end bag ever, but I think it’s also due to the simple fact that Vuitton manages to create such wonderful, irresistible pieces.

You know you travel more than most when you start to have people who work the counter recognize you, can answer questions better than the airport staff, know exactly where each gate is at nearly every airport, and have the security check down.

Looks like Ryan Reyonlds enjoys rockin’ out leather. He screams out, ‘Yea, I’m kool’ with his beanie and his chic leather messenger bag. This post is pretty pointless, other than to say Happy Friday from Ryan Reynolds and his man bag!

Paul Smith Mini Car BillfoldMany men love cars but not handbags, man bags, etc. My dad could care less about his wallet or briefcase, as long as they carry his things and do not completely break apart and lose his important papers. Vlad has transformed to appreciating good handbags and loving LV Man Bags.

Louis Vuitton Men Holiday Gifts

Shopping for your significant other is not easy if you are a gal. Boys will be boys which makes finding them a perfect holiday gift a very daunting task. Vlad for example loves his Louis Vuitton Taiga Dersou but also thinks he wants a Wii for Christmas.
