The best office-approved bags for work
The age-old-statement, ‘dress for the job you want’ is never more applicable then when applied to your work bag. Turning up to a board meeting with a tatty old tote that had seen better days, many days ago hardly sets a BDE or a closing-the-deal kind of mentality, and a notebook stuffed inside your inner-suit pocket is hardly the type of move that’s going to land you on the Forbes 100 list someday, but fear not: the Esquire team are on hand to let the cat out of the literal bag with the best new drops of pre-loaded with office swagger work bags.
The conventional work-bag norms have relaxed and changed, thankfully, from the clunky briefcases of past, however if you’re heading into your biannual appraisal meeting we’d recommend sticking to a hand held number instead of a more casual backpack.
Whether you opt for a fabric finish or something a little more robust and leather, we suggest investing as much as you can stretch to and nothing to ‘of the season’ to ensure that its use has longevity and is anything but a brief-case.
