Shopping Roundup: The Best Fall Bags for Men

These carryalls have the range

By Style Girlfriend | Last Updated: Sep 27 2018

As we’ve already noted, fall doesn’t quite hold the same shopping magic as it does when you’re still in school. Back-to-class lewks and new pencils and folders help when you’re giving up days at the neighborhood pool in favor of cafeteria lunches and a half hour recess.

Here at SG HQ, we want to make the transition from summer to fall a little more exciting even for the old folks out there who had to make do with Summer Fridays and a long weekend or two. So, along with our new picks for fall sweaters and fall jackets, we’ve pulled together our favorite fall bags for men.

Upgrade with the best fall bags for men, below:

1. Herschel Supply Co., $100

SG Says: Not a fan of backpacks or briefcases? Don’t resort to a gym bag just yet. A sturdy tote will look polished enough for work, while being functional enough to actually store your workout gear.

2. Aer, $135

3. Saturdays NYC, $195

SG Says: No, you don’t have to stick to neutrals with a backpack…though you might want to stay away from patterns, and anything PJ Masks-esque.

4. Uri Minkoff, $365

5. This Is Ground, $385

SG Says: This laptop sleeve/portfolio/tech organizer (the adult answer to a TrapperKeeper) will solve all your organizational woes.

6. United By Blue, $158

SG Says: A hybrid between and briefcase and messenger bag, this United by Blue number is ideal for a recent grad’s first foray into the non-backpack arena. Waxed canvas with leather details is sturdy yet versatile enough to dress up and down.

7. J.Crew, $120

SG Says: If your office is more jeans and Converse than suit and tie, a messenger bag is an easy briefcase alternative. It’s more grown-up than a backpack, yet equally functional.

8. Burton, $20

SG Says: Lunch, but make it fashion.

9. Coach, $595

SG Says: The hint of camo gives off subtle Jack Ryan, “Maybe I’m a data analyst or maybe I’m an international spy” vibes (is that what the show is about? We don’t have Amazon Prime…)

10. Tumi, $375

11. Chillhouse, $18

SG Says: When you want your team to know you’re not like, a regular boss. You’re a fun boss.

12. Fjallraven, $150

13. Off-White, $215

SG Says: When you want to be hip but can’t afford the sneakers.
