2023 saw the fashion world embracing sports players and solidifying that fashion brands need athletes. It would be an understatement to say our post on the best-dressed NFL players and their bags was well-received, so we thought we’d offer a quick follow-up on NBA players who also use their pre and post-game arrivals and departures as an advertising catwalk.

Social media has furthered athletes using platforms to market themselves, and we are always here to see the bags. Similar to NFL players, many of the NBA’s most fashionable men opt to carry duffles to and from the arenas, which makes sense because they typically come from the plane or hotel and vice versa.

I loved to see more of the NBA players embracing smaller bags, including crossbody bags and even a Chanel backpack! While I am not a big basketball fan, I am a massive fan of the bags and fits these stylish men have been spotted wearing. If this is up your alley, we covered some of the players of the Miami Heat last season as well. Check out the most remarkably in-vogue men of the NBA and the bags they’ve been carrying recently!

Absolutely love this post. This is style and bags. The style might not be for everyone but I love seeing their take on fashion. And please keep showing men as well. This is not purse blog for women only.

I think that these are among the worst dressed. There is no sense of style, they just pair designer clothes/bags randomly.

Please don’t click on the link then. I love these stories and I’m not even a sports fan. It’s so refreshing to see how men style their bags

Men love bags equally as much as women and deserve to be spotlighted on PurseBlog. We will continue to feature dudes, albeit less frequently than women.

I like the outfit from one of the guys: blue trousers and a soft knitted piece in blue, petrol green, and lila. It is a totally unisex colorful piece and I think that both my partner and I will love to have that piece too.
Regarding bags, I like to see bags from men and women so thanks for the series. … but the collection of bags selected is quite predictable. It is similar to many women “celebrities for different professional reasons” that tried to show their level of income, but not very exciting discoveries so far.

Loved this post for the diversity it brought to the usual lineup of posts you have. Just LOOK at all this discussion happening in the comments section!! Clearly something worked here.

Want to see more analysis, manbags-themed content, and cultural-themed content from Purseblog in the future. You have a wide canvas and lots of things you could talk about.

I love half of these looks! The ones that look like these guys walked into Barney’s (RIP) and bought what they liked and would actually wear. The other half looks like they paid a stylist to dress them in a way that would get media attention, which is also valid, but doesn’t look as good to me.
