Your lifestyle, your quirk
The man-bag, murse, or whatever you choose to call it pops up every so often in the fashion world. We have seen it several times over the last couple of years. More men are carrying bags just because, but I don’t think they have fully embraced the idea just yet.
With all of cool the electronic devices we have, it’s possible that the idea of carrying a bag every day will be embraced by men with both arms very soon. Whatever you want to call it, men do have the need for a nice oversized bag to carry their various belongings. One Father’s Day gift idea for the dad in your life is a messenger bag. This might be better suited to the younger or more fashion-conscious dad, but if your pops lugs around a lot of stuff, he might appreciate it.
Messenger bags were hot with the girls over the fall and winter months, and they are still quite popular in the fashion world. I am always a fan of this bag, and I have seen quite a few in GQ, Details, and other magazines that I would not mind tossing my lipstick and laptop in. Messenger bags are typically soft and a bit more stylish than a briefcase, and they always have an over-the-shoulder strap. There are several styles and textiles to choose from for this bag. Some of these cool messenger bags are even large enough to carry for an overnight or weekend trip.
Your best bet is to think about what style would be best for the dad in your life. For a sporty or preppy dad, you may want to go with a fabric like canvas, or you could go with a leather bag with an athletic or specific team logo on it. If this bag will be going to the office, leather or suede in black or brown would be perfect. A messenger bag is an especially cool gift for a new or dad-to-be. There are several “Daddy” diaper bags that can visually pass as a mild-mannered messenger bag, but in reality a standard messenger bag will probably have all the pockets and pouches that you need to carry your baby gear. Some of these bags even have straps to carry them as backpacks. Another tip is to look for masculine hardware and embellishments for a sleeker or more rugged-looking bag.
