Men's Weekend Bags

Travel bags have ben given a little uplift over recent years with massive brands such as Louis Vuitton and Mulberry creating a whole world around luggage. However, not all of us can afford such luxury brands so we have to make do with what we've got, but that doesn't mean we have to compromise on style at all. In this guide we at Idle HQ will show you the best men's travel bags, from rolling luggage to briefcases, we've got you covered. As we all know there are many different types of luggage pieces that you can own out there. But here at Idle HQ, we've narrowed it down to just a few key styles. From duffle bags to backpacks, here is our list of the best luggage pieces around. toppicks

Duffle Bag

The duffle bag is a classic mainstay in nearly every man's wardrobe. Don't think of the duffle bag as that canvas sack that you throw anything and everything into and chuck in the boot of your car. The duffle bag has had a little bit of a revival with brands such as Louis Vuitton and Eastpak re-designing the duffle bag into something more sleek and modern.

The trusty backpack has been with us for decades. Throughout the years the backpack underwent a few transformations. Today, however, the backpack has come back as a more practical accessory. Although it's still stylish, it holds practicality over everything.

By combining a heritage aesthetic with modern design, brands like Herschel are perfect for creating a classic look. Whether you prefer the spacious Little America backpack or something a little more compact, there's something for everyone. If you're off somewhere wet and windy then brands like Poler and Rains are the best option. Both these labels are renowned for producing durable water resistant bags that are also extremely stylish. Rather than the ugly kagools and horrible bags that we were used as a child, Poler and Rains have revolutionised the practical backpack.


Rolling Luggage

No longer do we have to put up with suitcases that have to be carried everywhere. Along with the invention of the wheel, we brought a whole new word of style when it came to suitcases. Before, people weren't necessarily bothered about having nice luggage, but these days, having nice luggage is somewhat of a statement. Brands such as Eastpak have modernised the suitcase into something very sought after.

This large Eastpak suitcase is spot on when it comes to fitting in all of your travel essentials. The double-deck compartments allow you to fit your stuff in a neatly way. The extra padding means you don't have to worry too much about your belongings getting damaged. toppicks


If you're on a business trip then a briefcase is perfect for carrying important documents. The briefcase isn't what your dad used to carry to the office anymore. No longer do we have to unlock it with some safe combination to gain access like some dodgy back alley dealing. The briefcase is modern and slick with zipper closures and stylish colours. However, if this is a little too formal for you, then a leather satchel is the perfect alternative. Coming with a handy strap and fastening clips, a satchel is great for travelling into the office or for taking documents on a trip.

For a modern take on the briefcase or satchel check out brands like Porter-Yoshida and Wood Wood. More of a document and laptop holder than a briefcase they're perfect for business trips. Big enough to store your laptop, they make for a detailed alternative to the bog standard black briefcase whilst keeping things stylish. toppicks The latest news from style, life, arts, and culture and everything in between.
