Every Monday I try to figure out what bags men like. The majority of men in my life have never had a bag other than their work briefcases. But I am always attempting to help them branch out and I am sure many of you are doing the same.
Today I found myself drawn to the A.P.C. Plaid Weekend Bag. Plaid has both a manly and stylish side to it and the blue, orange, cream combo looks current yet rugged.

The color and pattern reminds me of an old couch, and not in a bad way. I literally want to cuddle with this bag. I want Vlad to take it on our next weekend trip and when it gets a little chilly, I will turn to this bag and think it will keep me warm and cozy. I know bags are not intended to do that, but is that really too much to ask of man bags?
Truth be told, this bag is a great weekend option. The rough cotton will be durable and the colors will not show wear easily. At first I thought it would also work as a day-to-day bag for the dude that needs to carry lots of things, but the size might be a bit too large for that (20″ x 13″ x 6″). Buy for a very reasonable $290 via Mr.Porter.
