Men On the Go
If you think about it, most men can really just function with a 5 pocket pants/jeans armed with their wallet and phone every time they leave the house. Throw on life such as work, dating, married life, family, your dog and more work - a lot of men nowadays felt the need of carrying a “man purse”.
So what’s in a “man purse”? you don’t have to put your whole bachelor pad in it just like most ladies do. Just a few things that will make your life a bit easier.
Messenger bag - Pick a simple style. You don’t want to go over board with a lot of subtle details as it could get “girly” in a way. Leather would be nice and practical as it will survive wear and tear but a reasonable price messenger bag from ZARA will do just fine.
Foldable Ray-ban - Super portable and functional. You can put them in the front pocket of your shirt or pants. No more putting your sunglasses on top your head like a headband, not that it’s bad. Just stressing the coolness and portability of having one.
iPad Mini/Tablet - You have to work quickly at a Starbucks or your phone is just not big enough to view PDF files. Well, this is when an iPad/Tablet come in handy. It’s also a good alternative for a Kindle.
Business card holder - When you’re networking, you may not want to give out your crumpled business card from your wallet. You want to make a first impression by showing them that you’re ready and organized.
Swiss Army knife - Okay, you’re not preparing to save the world but you can at least save your day or someone’s day for any emergency that might occur. Emergency such as you need a beer bottle opener.
Pen - Preferably Montblanc (just kidding) but a dollar store will do just fine. You want to be prepared at all times, whether it would be in a business meeting or letting that cute girl borrow your handy pen.
Notebook - Sure our lives are taken over by technology and jotting things down can be easily stored in some sort of technological device. However, the power of taking notes on a piece of paper still gives a sense of accomplishment when you put a check mark on the things that you`ve done from your list.
Handkerchief - A very few men actually makes a habit of stashing a handkerchief in their pocket or in their bag. Remember that movie scene, when the lady cries and the guy hands over his handkerchief? sounds like a caring gentleman right?
