Just how many bags is it acceptable for a man to own?

May 31 2013


Just how many bags is it acceptable for a man to own? I’ve come to regard that question with the same dread/disdain as a well-bred person would a question about a woman’s age. Most of us wouldn't admit owning anything beyond our backpack from College. Free yourselves of the mental shackles, Gentlemen! The Bag is the New Primary Accessory.

The shoe has returned to its classic roots - we now favor classic wingtips and brogues and that calls for toeing the conformist but structured line. The watch can still be how one expresses individualism but let’s face it, oftentimes, ours is hidden by sleeves, jockeys for attention with some sports wristband or is simply too tied to our income and wages to be about individual style and taste. Enter the bag. Bags vary along dimensions of design, purpose, material, color and trim. A waxed cotton satchel is unmistakably about utilitarian style while a leather tote carries an air of (slightly) hedonistic self-centeredness. There’s room in your life for both. Why? Because the former is nostalgic and a throwback to some point in the past while the former is a modern testament to ambition and metropolitan materialism. In between those extremes we also need to carry and cosset the tools of our daily routine.

Here’s a guide for a timeless bag collection:

1. Canvas Messenger. Tough and durable enough to bequeath to your progeny. Practical enough to use everyday. Timeless enough to survive the post-hipster future. The Erik Messenger by Sandqist checks all the right boxes.

2. Backpack. Now, this can get a bit technical, Boys. Sure you want something durable that looks like it could be used by a Navy SEAL but this is where men get separated from boys. You don’t want your old Freshman nylon bag or that logoheavy rig you’ve held on to as an extension of your backpacking-across-Europe dream. Think more military-themed. Canvas. Leather. Carabiner-free. Character added with time and use. My preference would be navy with leather trim for the flexibility of going from office to gym to natural foods store for a baguette. Archival’s rucksack fits the bill.

3. Folio. Yes you can! It’s not just for Uncle Larry wafting Paco Rabanne with his leather folio. Yours might be accompanied by bitter vetiver and your iProduct. Think Vegetable-tanned leather and sleek lines. Think European craftsmanship and sexy details. Think Bonastre.

4. Leather Briefcase. Sure, it may only carry your mushroom melt and copy of Details but to the outside world you’re Gordon Gekko. Nothing else conveys corporate competence to a client or date. Sealing the deal is still up to you. Oxford Brief by Ro.

5. Weekender/Duffle. Because one day - preferably Friday - you’ll need to escape from work. You’re still obligated to be practical. A good Weekender should carry clothing, toiletries and….other accessories for your getaway. It should still survive the train/plane/bus ride and suitably impress the proprietor/busboy at the B&B. R and R weekender by Defy.

6. Tote. The one bag you can take to the beach and the office without a hint of selfconsciousness. You’ll still have to explain the Speedo and the sand. Tanker Tote by Porter. There’s room for 3 more. Or even 5. Let’s not annoy the Significant Other or pilfer from the 401(k)

Memorial Day Must-Haves: For Him & For Her

May 24 2013


It’s the first long weekend of the season - maybe some of you are going away or just getting into that "white shirt mood." Here at roztayger, we are definitely in the white shirt mood! White looks good on everyone: fresh, clean, versatile. Wrinkled or not - dressed up or down. On a personal note, I have been obsessed with white shirts for as long as I can remember. I have far too many but I never tire of them. If it's men's style for women or ones with lace - vintage or modern. I love white shirts on men - tan or pale, short or tall....guys look great in white shirts too. Below I have put together some easy and casual ways to start dressing and accessorizing for spring and summer! We have put together his and her looks for your three-day weekend away or simply around. Start with the ubiquitous white shirt and grab a neutral or colorful bag. Anything goes.
