Last week you may have seen our post about gift ideas for men’s birthdays. John has some really lovely bag that came from Mainline Menswear. Although these bags could be used for every day, I think they are perfectly suited as travel accessories. John and I often go away now for a weekend or a couple of days in London and he has been in need of some nice bags for himself for a while.
Armani Jeans Logo Holdall Bag
Not only do we go away as a family but John also has to go away to Rugby now and again for work and that means an overnight stay. His backpack has certainly seen better days and his old holdall was falling to pieces. The Armani Jeans Logo Holdall Bag is absolutely perfect for him. It’s big enough to use when we go away together, meaning I don’t have to take a separate bag, and also has plenty of room for when he goes away for work.
This bag has LOADS of space with the 2 large inside pockets and then the pocket on the front. The main compartment is super spacious, meaning your clothes can have space and not get screwed up!
The bag also comes with regular handles as well as a detachable shoulder strap. I really like this as it means John can still use it on the tube while getting Erin on/ off in the pushchair without me having to hold anything (escalators make me panic)!
Emporio Armani Train Prime Pouch Shoulder Bag
When we are out and about I tend to be the one carrying everything because I have the changing bag on the back of the pushchair. John doesn’t need to carry much to be perfectly honest but especially when we’re in London, something a bit safer than pockets is needed. I really love this Emporio Armani Train Prime Pouch Shoulder Bag and it’s perfect for travelling and trips away.
The bag may be quite small but there is room for the basics. The bag has a front slot (I won’t say pocket, it doesn’t close) as well as a zip up main compartment. This really gives me peace of mind as it makes it harder for anyone trying to steal anything. The strap on this bag is also adjustable. John is 6’1 so he needs something with a long strap or it will sit at his waist.
Both of these bags are fantastic. They are both super stylish and John is so happy to take them away with us. Not only do the bags look fantastic but they are so practical for so many occasions and they’ll both see a lot of use from John!
What kind of bag do you like to take away with you?
