Sandqvist's Dante backpack is a perfect example of how an understated bag can become a nice addition to an outfit. The canvas style makes it ideal for everyday occasions and also means that it's easy to get rid of that inevitable commuter train floor dust. It's roll top style allows for a good amount of luggage, whether it's your laptop, jacket or just a big lunch - and plus the zip and additional buckle fastening means there's no fear of anything escaping. The Dante bag is available in a range of colours, but go for a minimal black or navy style to get the most wear out of it, and with subtle leather detailing, there's no reason why this bag isn't also perfect for the office.
With their native city Stockholm being such a hybrid between the urban city and the surrounding natural landscape, Sandqvist's bags cater for every environment - so if you're after something a bit smarter, Sandqvist have also got you covered. Their range of leather detailed bags are ideal for adding a touch of subtle style to your outfit, without detracting from your overall look.

Subtle embossed branding adds a high end touch, whilst in keeping with the Scandinavian minimalism that flows through the entirety of Sandqvist's designs.
Sandqvist's range of bags is ridiculously extensive, but here at The Idle Man, we've curated the best styles, and that doesn't just mean your standard rucksack style bag. Sandqvist have also created a range of wash bags, perfect for taking care of all your everyday grooming products in style. Large enough to fit in everything you could possible need, but sleek enough that it will fit in nicely into any weekend luggage, the wash bag is the perfect addition to your grooming routine.
And just because your wash bag might usually be confined to your bathroom, it doesn't mean that it should lack in style. With it's iconically Sandqvist paired-back look and leather detailing, you'll definitely gain a couple more sartorial style points with this one.
