Welcome to the Autumn/Winter 2018 season. Where the summertime shorts are traded in for toasty trousers. Where our trendy T’s morph into long-lasting layers. Where oversized jackets and intricate styling are the norm, and the carefree, layer-free Summer days are just a faded memory. The season where, no matter where you’re going or what you’re doing, the mission is always to secure the bag.
The literal definition of securing the bag? Obtaining financial security, attaining your goals, and working towards everything you wish for.
Our definition of securing the bag? Doing all the above, while sporting the latest, trendiest bags around.
This is our guide through the biggest men’s bag trends of Autumn/Winter 2018.
THE SMART TOTE
What do you want from the perfect bag?
Style? Utility? Luxury?
Why not go for the juggernaut, and sport something that flawlessly delivers on all three?
Totes muster up the perfect blend of practicality and sophistication. This season, the tote bag has evolved from basic accessory to full-on fashion statement, meaning the bolder you go, the better.

THE TACTILE BACKPACK
The rugged, earthy coloured mood has been firmly in vogue for a while now, and AW ’17 is no different. Tactile backpacks, showcasing warmer palettes and materials – such as suede and canvas – are a great way to incorporate the season’s key colours into your ensemble.
Understated, functional, and supremely stylish.

THE FANNY PACK
If The Rock AKA Dwayne Johnson could pull of the fanny pack in the nineties, then anyone can do it during AW ’18.
The fanny pack is very, very in, but there’s some nuance to pulling it off without looking like a wide-eyed tourist. Premium-looking materials are key, supported by neutral, trend-appropriate colours such as shades of navy, black and burgundy.

THE STYLISH SATCHEL
Depending on how you dress around it, the satchel can present you as either posh and preppy or cool and laid back.
Neither is a bad option, and we absolutely adore versatility, so satchels are a definite win. It’s a style that is perfect for those on the move.
It is the vintage and practical choice.
