Choosing the perfect man bag this Christmas!

We like to see men embrace fashionable bags with both functional and stylish elements, and lately we’ve noted many cool man bags in the fashion scene and also on the street. Fashion designers have really spoilt men for choice this season, releasing many exciting new styles for fall 2013.

Do you know a man in need of a style update this winter? CarrieMe appreciate when men make an effort to look dapper - a shabby old bag can make a man look so bad even if he is wearing a stylish suit. CarrieMe are all about creating accessories to organise the modern, cosmopolitan woman, but that doesn’t mean we forget about men too! We've rounded up the best inspiration to choosing the perfect man bag this season which will help stylishly organise any man.

With a focus on everyday bags that can be used for work; If carrying lots of paperwork, books, laptops etc. a tote style will work. Look to Hermes F/W ’13, or Louis Vuitton for inspiration. Choose a fabric like leather, something waterproof for winter with a good quality.

Classic colours such as black, grey or brown leather in this style for a traditional man, or something with a bright colour or print for a more quirky trend led man – tweed or plaid check is a nice for Fall. Try this Large Upcycled Leather and Wool Tweed Bag from Etsy for an affordable version of the Burberry tote.

The briefcase style bag was large on the Catwalks for Fall too, look at Mulberry, Bottega Vanetta and Ralf Lauren. For a more affordable option try this one from Aspinal or satchel leather briefcase from Etsy. With briefcases, the CarrieMe bag hook in Black or Silver works well in office scenarios. Not just for women, the CarrieMe bag hooks are used for laptop bags and man bags!

Our final suggestion is the duffel bag - no longer so bulky and ugly, designers are making these sleek lightweight bags which are versatile; useful for work, travel and gym. Taking inspiration from Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013, we like this Herschel Novel bag which comes in loads of colours, in a canvas material.
