Let’s face it, when going on short trips, men typically tend to travel lighter than women. While a lady would probably carry an oversized purse, carry-on and even check a bag for a 3 day trip, guys just carry one bag. They are magically able to fit all their essentials and go straight from the office to a weekend in the Hamptons or in the case of Chicagoans heading up to Michigan or Lake Geneva, in one compact yet practical enough carryall.
From the runway to the streets, function and fashion have merged with the modern in the form of the oversized tote for men aka the Weekender. Spotted on celebrity trendsetters like Kanye West, Ryan Gosling, Michael B. Jordan, the cool carryall weekender is making it’s mark as the perfect bag to take on any weekend jaunt or short trip.
