Let’s face it, a man needs a bag. Whether it’s for work, weekend trip or the gym, men use bags. But unfortunately, most men don’t pay much attention to the man bags that are on offer. They think a good bag is a bag that hold stuff. But we’ve seen too many well-dressed guys who cheapen their look with a nylon gym bag or an old leather bag – so we’ve come up with this series and hope more guys will make the leap and see the man bag as an investment. Welcome to our Man Bag Hunt series.

We like this Maison Martin Margiela Waxed-Effect Holdall Bag because it’s verstatile enough for work and the weekend. Measuring 36cm across by 38cm, the bag is spacious enough for important documents, a laptop and extra gadgets. It’s got leather handles, a detachable shoulder strap and multiple internal pockets.

We like that the shoulder strap is detachable and how the cotton is coated with polyurethane to repel rain and spillage. The leather handles also means the bag is unlikely to lose shape even if you put heavy items like a laptop.

Retailing for £400 at Mr Porter, this man bag is only available in black.
