My Love Affair with Messenger Bags
Leather messenger bags became popular during the 90’s. Their style has remained almost unaltered, as classic does not like too many changes. In the last decade, they have become an urban fashion icon and men started wearing messenger bags everywhere. Have you ever wondered where they come from?
The history of the modern messenger bag actually starts in the 1950’s. They were designed to be used by line workers. Messenger bags were made to accommodate the tools they needed, so the bags were very spacious and functional. The material used for the original messenger bag was cotton canvas lined with a waterproof fabric.
What makes the messenger bags so great for today’s men is their versatility. They are more casual than a briefcase, and yet more professional than a backpack, so they can fit into every context. Choose a leather messenger bag instead of canvas and you’ll get a perfect bag for urban settings.
More and more people find themselves carrying their laptops around these days. Whether you are a student, a freelancer, or just commuting to work, there is a good chance you’ll need to take your laptop with you more often than not. A leather messenger bag looks as professional as a laptop bag or briefcase and is equally (or maybe even more) functional. On top of that, you get to show off your style at the same time.
There is no such thing as a perfect bag, however a leather messenger bag comes pretty close.
