You’re not secure enough in your masculinity for a tote bag but you still have a shipping container’s worth of electronics, balms and books to bring on your commute. While you might feel pressured (society, man!) into purchasing a briefcase to contain, organize and elevate your belongings, here’s the thing: the right backpack can nab you cool points and an air of respectability.
This Dolce and Gabbana backpack combines a military look with the company’s classic lux materials: cross-grain calf leather, canvas and a silken lining. A cavalcade of buckles, drawstrings and zippers will keep things secure (pickpockets are real and, unlike in Oliver, not endearing). The green and brown palette is rustic, so you won’t feel uppity taking this bag on a hike, but the rich, dark tones keep things decidedly urban. [1,595; mrporter.com]
