Well the times they are a changin'. At least they are trying too. Last month Coach opened a store just for men in New York. Coach VP of North American Sales, Mike Tucci, told WWD that the new boutique marks the end of men being treated as "second-class citizens" in their shopping experience. Well here here! Thank god someone has finally decided to right this wrong. The store carries bags(of course), but also, watches, parkas, swim trunks, leather goods and shoes. Coach has revamped their line of men's bags and things are looking good. Their totes are by far their best looking product.
Property of... makes nice bags for guys.
So does Filson.
Steve Mono bags are fucking gorgous. The brand began in 2006, are made in Spain and are vintage inspired. Maybe I'll go to Spain and pick one up.
I don't know why Jack Spade annoys me. The bags are simple and pretty nice.
I'll never forget the year I was going into 3rd grade my mom took my sister and I to this Army Navy type store to get new school backpacks. I had always wanted to enter this store and was enamored by hunting knives and army jackets. To my extreme horror she led us over to the Eastpak backpacks and made us each pick one out. I had wanted something cool and this was not it. She gave us a lecture on buying reliable things to save money in the long run. I picked out a drab maroon pack with contrast leather triangle thingys and bottom. My sister got the drab grey with grey leather. I'll never forget it because I used that same bag 3rd grade through 10th when I traded bags with my sister and used the grey until graduation. Lesson learned. This rucksack by Eastpak is cute though if you need some double strap action.
