A prototype bag that caught too much luck: Carga Felt Collection | Best Messenger bags for men

Carga bags felt it coming.
"I had some felt lying around one day, and turned it into a bag. One of the perfume bottle designers saw it and left a note on my desk  saying, "You have to make one of these for me." Two days later, he said two of his colleagues wanted one. Soon I was spending all weekend making them, with a long waiting list, so I flew down to Argentina and created this small workshop with two workers there." - Mauro Bianucci

And after that… as we all say is, History.

The Carga Felt  collection is made with Industrial wool felt, assembled by hand with aluminum rivets. Integrating leather into the mix creates the perfect unity of chic and durability for a mens bag. The Carga Felt collection paved the way for the Carga Leather collection which shares the same design structure, and later on the 0W collection. Timeless is an adjective that can best describe this line as the appeal lasts for ages to come.

Best Messenger bags: the Moleskine City bag series is Perfection

I've posted before on the Moleskine City Bag but I didn't realize that there was this inspiring video on the feature. I've been collecting Moleskines notebooks for years now and there seems to be something about it that makes you feel inspired while you do your initial strokes on the paper's surface. It doesn't matter if your sketching or just plain writing, theres that feeling that your in touch with something legendary and magical. Upon checking the Travel collection in detail, I have been captivated by the simplicity and usability of this perfect City Bag collection. 

Using the universal appeal of the color Black Polyurethane which is of water-repellent exterior, and the usability of Velcro to keep things together. This would be the best selection for someone who wants everything to look relevant to each other.

Moleskine City bag is perfection personified.

Best Messenger Bags for Men: Freitag bags

One of the coolest bag brands around, Freitag uses materials from used truck tarpaulin, car seat belts, airbags, and bicycle inner tubes to create one of the best messenger bags for men (and now gaining a following for the ladies). The idea first struck after the need to have a waterproof messenger bag after a hard rain that messed up their bags and its contents. Using their background in graphic design, they select only parts of the logo from truck Tarpaulin and create a one off piece that is unique to the bearer. You get to help the environment, a tough bag that has passed the test of the elements, and graphically designed bag to soothe the senses.

Best Messenger bags for Men: Ben Sherman Messenger bag in Olive

One of the best Messenger bags for men that I've seen from Ben Sherman. A mix of classic design but with usability in mind because of the front and back pockets. Comfort is the first thing that crossed my mind after seeing this.

Best Messenger Bags for Men: The Lorimer Enamel Messenger Bag

You just arrived in Singapore, exhausted from the three hour plane ride you head straight to the hotel. Apparently, there's no safety cabinet in the hotel that you're staying. Worried your going to lose your notebook, you decided to stuff in your Macbook inside your messenger bag, some maps to guide you around, and a clean shirt just in case you get all sweaty with the humidity.

Taking your card keys from it's slot, you grab your bag from it's top handle, noticing the weight. Waiting for the elevator, you see an elderly couple, you say hi. They're shy to greet you back but gave a smile instead. You head down to the lobby and see a perfect afternoon.

You head down to Kampong Glam in the Bugis area to meet up with some friends, had shisha and mediterranean cuisine for dinner. After having enough Erdingers you bid goodbye. Adjusting your hidden backpack shoulder straps on your way back to the bus station you thank the heavens for the extra feature of your bag as you sling both straps to your shoulders.
