People have been asking me about bags for men, what kind of types are there, sizes and shapes. Some others have been asking me if I think the wallet is enough for a man to carry his things, and the answer for that is: NO. There's nothing worst that a bulky wallet. It is supposed to be an object to carry your basic papers, money, and that's it.

And it's even worse when a guy has his pockets full of things making his legs look deformed and unshaped. And it is not an excuse to make your ass look bigger. It's ugly and unflattering. 

Now, there are 7 types of man bags I highly suggest to everyone, from your everyday shoulder or traveler bag, to a new minimalist easy-on-the-go type of bag called the "clutch". Yep, back in the day they were exclusively for women, but today it's a privilege for the guys too.

Let's get to them.

EN ESPAÑOL:

Hay 7 tipos de bolsos que recomiendo para los hombres, cada uno con una función especifica para diferentes momentos de la vida cotidiana y que se vuelven imprescindibles en el guardarropa. Recuerda que es muy diferente llevar un clutch elegante al gimnasio o un bolso de gimnasio a un evento social nocturno. Conoce estos tipos de bolso y aprende a identificarlos, ahora cuando vayas a la tienda sabrás exactamente cual se ajusta mejor a tus necesidades. ¡Y si puedes, compra uno de cada tipo!


- THE MESSENGER BAG -
(Bolso mensajero)

The messenger bag is the most common bag of them all, it's discrete, and it is absolutely comfortable not only because it goes all the way down to your hips and back, but because it is hands-free. You can wear this kind of bag for work, high school or college. I personally don't like this bag as much because it's not my style.  

El bolso mensajero es el más común de todos y tiende a ser el más discreto. Es cómodo y fácil de llevar porque va hasta la zona baja de las caderas y te permite caminar sin molestias. Además de esto es manos libres. Utiliza este bolso para ir al colegio, universidad o trabajo.


- TOTE BAG -
(Bolso de hombro o mano)

This is my favorite kind of bag. I like to feel my bag over the shoulder because for some reason I feel like is more safe there. Safe for others to open it that is. It's also very comfortable and it can be very elegant according to the style or brand you choose. It's also known for its big size. I don't like them too big or too small, specially because I carry a lot of things. You can use this if you're going shopping, or if you are the kind of man who carries a lot of stuff. Also you can carry this bag with one hand, it looks sophisticated and manly.

Este es mi tipo de bolso favorito. Me gusta llevarlo sobre el hombro porque siento que en esta zona se mantiene más seguro y tengo más control sobre el, tanto para sacar como para meter cosas en el camino. También es bastante cómodo y puede resultar bastante elegante según como lo uses. Si eres de los hombres que suelen llevar muchas cosas, este es el bolso para ti.


- BACKPACK -
(Mochila)

This is also one of my favorites specially if you're carrying heavy things such as the laptop or big books. If you work at the office or you're in school you know this kind of bags are the best to carry a lot of stuff (heavy) and still gives you hands-free. It's not sophisticated to carry in social events or special moments, it is more of a casual option, and you can also used it if you're going to travel.

La mochila es un bolso bastante útil si eres de los que lleva muchas cosas, especialmente pesadas, tales como el computador portátil o libros pesados. No es la opción más estilizada para momentos especiales por lo que te recomiendo que lo dejes como un accesorio funcional. Ya sea para la escuela o el trabajo.


- BRIEFCASE -
(Maletín)

Talking about working at the office, this kind of bag was made for men on the go. They come with long stripes and a flat surface to carry papers and documents. If you're a man of business or you want to look as formal as possible, this is the bag for you. I love it.

El maletín es casi un sinónimo de trabajo de oficina o de personas que requieren llevar documentos importantes de un lado hacia otro. Es una opción discreta y elegante para los que están en el mundo laboral o siempre prefieren una apariencia formal y clásica. Pero como ves en la foto, también se puede llevar de forma casual. Haz de este bolso un complemento a tu estilo.

- CLUTCH -
(Bolso tipo sobre)

Clutch bags are easy to use and are versatile for a lot of moments. They are meant for events where you need to carry things that are impossible to compact in your pockets, such as your gum, keys, wallet, cellphone, and other necessities. Keep in mind that clutches occupy your hands at some point so if you're able to carry things in you hand without driving yourself nuts, then this bag might work for you.

Los clutch se volvieron una necesidad entre fashionistas y hombres con estilo. Sin embargo, es una opción que puede llegar a ser bastante útil en la vida diaria. Si solo requieres llevar pocas cosas pero no quieres usar tus bolsillos, puedes usar un clutch. El celular, las llaves, y la billetera encontrarán un buen lugar en este tipo de accesorio.

- GYM BAG -
(Bolso de gimnasio)

The name of the bag gives it away. The gym bag are useful if you need to carry sporty things (such as your wet shirt, swimsuit, uniform etc). Most of these bags are waterproof so it's appearance is most of the times plastic or shiny. Avoid using these kind of bags for your everyday because they don't look good outside sporty scenarios. 

Como su nombre lo dice, es un bolso para gimnasio o ambientes deportivos. Prefiere este tipo de bolsos si vas a llevar elementos mojados o sucios puesto que la mayoría de estos son a prueba de agua o son impermeables. Evita usarlos en momentos diferentes al deportivo, para los demás momentos, como puedes ver, hay más alternativas.

- KIT BAG -
(Neceser)

This is a very useful bag to carry personal and hygiene products such as your razor or tooth brush. Specially if you're carrying these things inside a bigger bag. No matter if you keep your personal hygiene things at home, treat yourself and get one of these bags. Even at home these bags protect your stuff and keeps everything in place and handy when you need them.

Me encanta este bolso para guardar elementos de cuidado personal o de higiene, es necesario para protegerlos si vas a guardar estos elementos en un bolso más grande. Aún si no vas a salir de casa, asegúrate de tener uno. Siempre mantendrán tus cosas en orden y libre de suciedades.
