Men's bags are useful at different times, but once they have taken the plunge men tend to carry one around with them at all times. Most men carry at least one smartphone around with them, as well as a wallet, car keys, door keys, sunglasses and in some cases spectacles. All of these items would look bulky in the pockets of a tailored suit or a pair of tight fitting jeans. Packing all of these daily essentials neatly into a smart leather bag is a much better option. A bag is also useful on flights as a larger man bag enables you to easily carry items such as an ipad, smart phone, papers, pens and a book. This eliminates the need of a small cabin bag and means you can have all the items you want on the flight under your seat rather above your head.

Women have been the dominant group in fashion for the past century. Women's fashion is often seen as more glamorous, while men's fashion is viewed as less important and less interesting than their female counterparts.
