Although perhaps never quite as fashion-led as the women’s handbag, the ‘man bag’s cultural and historical importance can’t be underestimated. Put simply, men have worn bags since they have had things to carry. For centuries, the man-bag has been a staple of men’s style. In the middle ages, before pockets were invented, it was a […]
