The designers who sent their male models down the runways for the AW19/20 fashion shows had bags carried at every angle. Whilst the styles have their edge, they are high on function, with lots of pockets. Here’s a top 10 list of this season’s bags. It doesn’t matter if there are corporate days, start up or agency working days, or casual weekends, your bag is no longer an after thought. Your trouser pockets are breathing a sigh of relief that they no longer have to be put to the test! And if you have a man in your life who has everything he can want for, this may be your Christmas gift list of inspiration.

If you have a man in your life who needs a new bag, here are the styles and choices that are in demand.
To prepare for this guide I chatted with quite a few women about their work bag needs. Armed with a comprehensive list of what’s in women’s work bags I began to wish Mary Poppins wasn’t a figment of Disney’s imagination, that she was on speed dial and she could reassure me there was a black leather version of her bottomless carpet bag!
