Men’s bag, practicality and elegance

Who ever said that the bag is only a female accessory? For work or for a trip, practicality and elegance are essential for him too. Certainly a bag does not affect masculinity and does not reduce the charm of a man, on the contrary! If the bag is of quality and elegant, its presence makes the man even more interesting!

Shoulder bag or bag with handles?

It depends on the style and on how you prefer to move: the shoulder strap is more casual and ensures greater flexibility in movements; the hand bag is more classic and elegant and can be used as a document, PC or tablet holder, perfect for the office.

Even men, in fact, have to bring with them keys, mobile phones, maybe newspapers and documents, let’s add a bottle of water (especially in this season), maybe the lunch and who knows what else … Reason why even men need a bag.

Which color and size?

The advice is to opt for the classic colors: black, brown, gray, cachy, military green.

Smooth bags are better, without too many logos and decorations, suitable for different occasions. A leather bag is the best choice, perfect for any occasion, travel or work.

When choosing the size, do not hesitate to try the bag in front of the mirror, in order to carefully see if it fits your style, if it is the right size, if it has the right capacity for your needs.

The right choice

Do you have doubts? You have to know that the leather bag is the right choice between the canvas bag, more informal and casual, and the classic bag, which is not for everyone.

The best thing of the leather bag is that it matches perfectly with a pair of jeans, as well as with jacket and tie. It gives character to the look, it is roomy, functional and resistant, like all the accessories made with this material.

In short, choosing genuine and quality leather, you will have practicality and elegance in one fell swoop!

Tips: how to clean your leather backpack

A holiday at the sea, a bike tour or a motorbike excursion: the summer days are more and more dynamic and funny and, if you count to bring your “faithful” leather backpack with you, it is good to know that in case of unexpected stains, there is no need to despair because everything can be solved. Moreover, to keep the leather in good condition, do not forget a little “maintenance”, which means to hydrate it periodically.

 

Three tips

 

Here are three practical tips to clean your backpack or your leather bag.

  1. Do not use water, in order to avoid worsening the situation. For instance, on the leather, we could create halos that are difficult to remove.
  2. Much depends on the type of stain: if it is a slight trace of dirt, you can take a cotton swab or a white rag soaked with neutral detergent milk (the one you use to remove make-up on your face).
  3. With the cotton swab gently rub the stain and let the backpack dry, avoiding direct sun, if possible.

 

Ordinary maintenance

How to do the “ordinary maintenance” of your leather backpack?

Sometimes the leather needs to be hydrated – especially in the Summer, when it is more exposed to the sun, heat and wind – just like the skin of our body, you can use a fairly solid moisturizer, not overly greasy.

For polishing, you can use an old grandma’s remedy: rub a pair of nylon stockings to make the backpack shinier and ready for the whole Summer.

How to understand if a leather is of quality?

How many times in buying a bag, a wallet or a belt we wanted to evaluate the quality of the leather? How to recognize it then?

It is essential to learn to distinguish the product that is worth from the poor quality to avoid being cheated and to make sure we get a beautiful accessory that lasts over time. For this aim, here are seven practical tips, which we hope will come in handy in your choice “leather good”.

  • The eye wants its part

Observe and examine the product well before buying it. It seems a banality, but first of all that item or object must visually convince you, it must be in your style and taste. Then the other senses will come into play, which will help you to distinguish the quality of the leather and make the right choice.

  • Let the nose be your guide

Do you have a good sense of smell? A leather belt or bag has a very peculiar, enveloping and acrid smell; already only the smell is almost a “brand” of originality, very different from all other materials. For the bags we usually use hides of animal origin (especially of bovine), which are subjected to tanning with chemicals to stop the natural decomposition and ensure the preservation of the skin. In the case of eco-leather, the origin is always animal, but natural substances are used to tan the skin, with a reduced environmental impact.

  • Touch for believe

Take the object in your hands, gently rub the leather, try to pull it and bend it to evaluate its consistency. Let your fingertips guide you. The real leather is soft and malleable and resists well to wear; you can rub and pull, but the shape will not be affected.

  • Look at the seams

If the seams are made by hand they will be more resistant and durable – and the product may cost more, of course, because the operation took longer – and from an aesthetic point of view the effect is nicer than the seams made by machine. It is also important that a quality thread has been used to sew the cuts: the most used are linen threads, more flexible than nylon ones.

  • Even the cut has its importance

The leather should be cut following the direction of the grain, to ensure more flexibility to the object and to avoid that over time accumulate wrinkles or creases aesthetically unpleasant.

  • Beware of the edges

To prevent moisture from getting better and penetrating inside, the edges must be burnished correctly, and it is an attention that good artisans usually do not fail to give.

  • Finally, the label

The “real leather” brand should be printed or glued on the object, to attest the quality of the product: “100% real leather”. At this point, it’s up to you: good choice!
