Longchamp Boxford Travel Bag

If you attended an American college in the last decade or so, then you’ve probably had a Longchamp bag in your life at some point. Even if you didn’t own one (I never had the urge), you probably knew a slew of girls who swore by theirs as a constant companion during time on campus. Plenty of ladies have graduated their Longchamp nylon totes into utilitarian post-collegiate work-wear as well, but until today, I had no idea that the company also made men’s bags.

I suppose the Longchamp Boxford Travel bag may not technically be a men’s bag; it’s listed as a travel option, after all, and those tend to be unisex. Bloomingdale’s considers it a member of the store’s men’s department, though, so I’m going to go with it. As it turns out, I was simply ignorant of the entire line, which includes leather briefcases and messenger bags as well. The things you learn from the Googles.

Of them all, though, I’m still particularly fond of this carryall. You can clearly see the signature Longchamp styling in it, but it’s been taken in a sturdier, more masculine direction. I could see both men and women using this bag proudly on a weekend adventure, and perhaps if you’re lucky, you’ll have one in your future. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $320.

    I find Longchamp to be the most useful bags, you really dont have to care much for them and they always look cute and the design although simple is very timeless. As a man I use the large Le Pliage as a gym bag, and this might be my next purchase because of the shoulder strap!

    Longchamp bags are the best travel companions! I’ve been using a large pliage bag for ages as a carry-on: it’s almost weightless and fits so much! I also have a Keepall 45 and even though it looks great, but it much heavier and when it comes to walking around the duty dree for some time, the weight really matters.
