Man bags, a tricky subject. Should you, a man, carry a bag when you could: 1.) use these things called hands; 2.) use these things called pockets; 3.) not bring stuff that requires hands and pockets (and bags)?

While, yes, you can eschew the bag for these reasons (really?), you will be missing out on gear that will make a difference in your life (you can only do so much with two hands) and, maybe more important, speak about who you are. Which is the magic of any accessory. When done right, it adds a layer of character to a standard shirt-and-pants rig.

Just take a look at these roundup of men, who in collaboration with homegrown leathergoods house Fino, created the most perfect bags for their lives.
