Jack Spade Dad Backpack

Man bags are a must. Well in my opinion, they should be. For some reason men just do not want to ever say that they are carrying a ‘man bag’. What is the issue? Why not?! I am not asking you to carry a pink bag, but some bags are just so darn good looking on a man. Jack Spade has decided that man bags are a must, so all you ladies need to convince the men in your lives to nab a man bag. The Jack Spade Dad Backpack in Chocolate is a simple enough bag for any man to like. Made from brown triple-layered, weatherproof nylon, this bag is equipped for any daddy playing mommy for the day. The outside has a double-zip top, padded shoulder straps (since all the baby gear weighs quite a bit), and two front zip pockets. Not only will you open up to some bright green nylon lining, you will also find two bottle holders, and easy to access Velcro® pocket, laptop sleeve, key loop, and a bright green reversible changing pad (that green lump in the picture ;-) ). Overall stats are 17″H x 14″W x 6″D. All you men on the verge of trying to venture into the world of bags may find this bag to be the perfect beginner bag- especially if you have a cute little baby!. Buy it through Neiman Marcus for $225.

Burberry Luggage Tags

Let’s talk some Burberry today. For a light start, we got the Burberry Luggage Tags for $130.00. A ridiculous amount of money, considering you can get generic tags for a buck fiddy or the free paper ones at the airline ticket counter. Still, if you don’t know what to do with your money, and you already spend several G’s on a full Louis luggage set, you might as well spend another half a grand on these tags to round off the luxurious bunch. They come in sets of two, in either Jacquard Canvas or Metallic Leather and can be ordered right here.

Jake Gyllenhaal Man Bag

It’s the attack of the killer man bag. Yikes. The controversial Jake Gyllenhaal, who has seemed to have the problem staying faithful, is completely secure in his fashion choice. If I’ve ever seen a man bag be worn so proudly, it is by Jake while he flirts- oops, I mean converses- with another woman (where you at for this one Dunst?). If anyone can be so comfortable with his masculinity and huge ego, it’s Jake- even with his messenger-style man bag/small backpack. Jake wears the bag well with. More power to him :-)

How many times has it been impossible for you to shop for your dad or any other guy for that matter? For me, it’s constant. I don’t know what to get, what size, what color, what thing- I don’t know anything. All I ever think of for my dad is a tie. Birthday time- my dad, “Oo a new tie”. Christmas time- my dad, “Oo a new tie”. Father’s Day time- my dad, “Oo a new tie”. You name the holiday, it’s been pretty much guaranteed that I have bought my dad a tie. But for his birthday coming up, I have something so new and so original (ok that was partially sarcastic). How about a tie case? Ah yes, a holder for the tie. The Brunelleschi Black Italian Leather Tie Case is crafted from beautiful Italian leather and is sure to make any dad wonder “What the hell do I need this for??”. I love that reaction from gift giving- it’s always the best. I guess some working man decided it was time to protect his ties from wrinkles and creases when he traveled, so now there is a piece of leather that can hold it in place for you. The inside contains four leather snap straps to hold the ties in place for the turbulent plane rides. The case measures (in inches) 6.30 x 15.75 x 0.98. For only $158 via Forzieri this impractical case can be yours! ;-)

Dior Homme Classic Large Flap Messenger BagJust like Vlad said, an apology for yesterday. Vlad helped me move into my new place yesterday (and by help I mean he did it all while I watched and carried the small things- like a water bottle and my keys). I only moved one street away from where I lived before, but it still is the complete biggest pain ever. Since jet lag has still been hanging around, I’ve been waking up around 4:45 am and watching the news and infomercials – so far I haven’t spent any non-sensical money on the wrinkle removing cream or lotion that makes you lose 10 lbs on first application ;-). So yesterday while I was a bit lazy and not-so-helpful, I sat on some boxes and started to think about what bags I need to focus more on. Wa-la. Man Bags!! Now what I do know is many men carry bags- they may not want to call it a bag, but it is. All that being said I know there are men who would love a trendy bag to carry to work. This Dior Homme Classic Large Flap Messenger may not suit every guy’s fancy- but it sure comes close for me!

Dior has brought in it’s fashion with a simple sleek edge for a messenger bag. The area where I see some men not wanting the bag is the slightly visible tone-on-tone Dior logos which are all over the textured coated canvas. The bag features a smooth leather trim and brushed palladium-finished hardware. The man messenger bag can either be worn over one shoulder or strung across the chest with the 14″ to 29″ varying drop. Sizing up at 13″ x 12″ x 4″, the bag is big enough for a laptop and other essentials. This messenger bag can be bought through eLuxury only costs $595 (which for a Dior bag is a steal).

Louis Vuitton HandbagAs my mom remarked to me about my dad earlier today, “Your father is the least close to a metrosexual in the world”, I realized I needed to feature a man bag. And going with my mom’s comment on my dad, I realize this bag is not for you dad! Sorry. But I know there are men among you out there that are totally hip and always nicely dressed and this bag is for you. I love Louis Vuitton and their messenger bags. I actually have one that I adore and used to use for school (when I went of course). From all of my travels I have learned one thing; the working man today loves a trendy messenger bag. They all have it. All the business tycoons in NYC carry them. The Louis Vuitton Bastille messenger bag is the perfect working bag for any man out there (unless you are also not ‘metrosexual’ like my father).

Louis Vuitton has so many styles that can meet any man’s need, and this bag is made of the city men out there. Made from the Damier canvas with brown cowhide trim and polished brass hardware, this bag calls attention to its style but also is not too over the top with logos. Don’t get me wrong. Almost everybody knows the Damier print to belong to Louis Vuitton, but the LV logo pattern is much more obvious I think. The messenger style bag has a full flap that closes with a unique brass and hidden-elastic “button” providing easy access to the spacious interior. The inside is packed with goodies including two deep pockets, one full-width inside pocket, and terracotta canvas lining. Now terracotta reminds me of some sort of outdoor patio, but maybe I’m just crazy and way off. Along with all of the inner goodies the bag features a zipped outside back pocket and an adjustable textile strap that may be worn on the shoulder or across the body. Whichever way you chose to wear this bag, you will know you are stylin’! The bag is a plentiful 13″ ½ ” x 12″ ¼” x 4″ for all you work junkies who wondered if you could fit all your necessities in there and can be purchased at eLuxury for $1,000 even.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Mini Initials KeepallFor as long as I can remember my family has taken the usual trips to Nantucket, Cape Cod, and the Hamptons area. It was something we did as a family and many times it was for 4th of July or Memorial Day or just some other long weekend. There is a point to my blabbing on about my childhood. The Louis Vuitton Monogram Mini Initials Keepall for men reminds me of my vacations spent in the beautiful areas of Nantucket, Cape Cod and of course the Hamptons. I saw this new release by Louis Vuitton and my mind began to automatically reminisce to my younger years of preppy times in the Northern Atlantic region of the States. The keepall reminds me of sail boat rides, picnics on the beach, tea time, parites set up by my parents, fresh fruit, and of course fireworks. I just see this bag and think of that hot preppy beach boy that stayed right next to us every summer. You know that kind: blond shaggy hair, blue eyes, tan, killer bod, etc. Ahhh those were the days.

The keepall is newly reinvented based on the classic Men’s Keepall for this Men’s Spring/Summer show. The bag is made of a simple cotton and linen Monogram Mini Initials canvas and shows off leather handles and of course the rope shoulder strap. What I find to be the most attention grabbing is not only the rope shoulder straps but also the vintage inspired silkscreened “V”. The trim of the bag is none else than calfskin, including the handles and shoulder pad. The inside of the keepall is lined with polyester and cotton and contains an inside pocket for a Blackberry, PalmOne, etc. The bag also features golden-finished brass hardware, a removable rope and leather shoulder strap, removable leather ID tag, and for travel purposes it easily folds flat. The Louis Vuitton Monogram Mini Initials Keepall measures 18.4″ x 10.8″ x 19.2″ and can be yours (or a Father’s Day Gift for your hubby) at eLuxury for $2070.

The Lambertson Truex Messenger Bag stars in black leather and features two locks with signature “LT” on silver metal hardware. The shoulder strap is fully adjustable to fit any type of stature. The bag has heaps of pockets and pouches for all the things the modern man carries to his office these days. For $495 at Neiman Marcus.

Fontanelli Golf Ball HolderMen love to golf. Will women ever understand it fully? Probably not, since golfing isn’t typically the woman’s sport of choice. What I do know is that men will drop thousands of dollars on golf clubs, bags, shoes, balls, etc. Treat your golfin’ man with this exquisite goodie:

The Fontanelli Golfball Holder was made in mind for the man or woman who adores the perfectly cut greens and Tiger Woods. This piece has room for four balls, four tees and also a snap on the back to attach it to your belt. When it comes time for that one perfect shot, what better way to start it off than with the prized ball nicely resting in an Italian leather case on ur back belt?

The holder is italian-made of fine, dark brown leather and goes over the counter for 65 bucks.
