Men and their bags, Pitti and Milan

01


Out of these 15 bags shot by Tommy Ton for GQ in the streets of Pitti and Milan, only three (with the third, barely so) men were carrying them by their handles.


02


Well of course most of them were also portfolios. In aged croc leather no less!


03


In colorful but muted paisley.


04


Seems they weren't carrying many things.


05


Just remove the buckle and this becomes a portfolio.


06


I wonder how many years this man has been carrying his portfolio like this.


07


08


Another costume change.


09


Like skin! Though sometimes you really just need a bigger bag.


10


This I want.


11


And this will keep your hands free, though I'm not sure for how long.


12


These peacocks are having a hard time reading their invites just because they have to carry their bags in a certain way.


13


When they are built to allow for movement. Men and their bags: I thought the relationship should be no-nonsense.


14


Subdued and practical.


15


Though with bags like these that, as Tommy rightly points out, age like fine wine, who wants anything less than fantastic?
