“It’s not a man purse. It’s called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one!”
-Alan, The Hangover
Nowadays, there are certain accessories that every guy should own: an elegant watch for some out-of-this-world #wristporn, some sleek shoes and – of course – a chic men’s leather bag. Still, the man purse aka “murs” seems to be a polarizing item for guys to carry around. But I believe that those days of stuffing one’s pockets with numerous things should belong to the past. Let’s all become like Indiana Jones and claim our urban jungle of style.
If you were to meet me on the street, you’d probably always see me with a bag. The simple reason being that I absolutely hate stuffing my wallet and keys into my pockets. Not only do I feel it looks ridiculous and is unflattering; I am also afraid to drop things if these pockets are too loose and spacious.
What I haven’t realized so far: I am apparently prone to black leather bags. Obviously, this had to change so when my parents asked me what they could get me for my birthday. I gladly responded: “a tan or brown men’s leather bag”.
You probably can tell that I haven’t been disappointed. I got this great bag from JOST and have been in love with it ever since.
JOST is a premium brand that designs high-quality leather bags. As I have purchased a few low-quality bags in my life before, I know why spending a few extra bucks for a bag is worth it. The bag features a practical, classy – almost immortal – design, great haptics and craftmanship in terms of hardware. I also adore its orange mesh pockets and trolley function.
Anyways, now you know which accessory I cannot live without. What’s yours?
