Travel Bags for the Gentlemen

Summers are perfect for weekend trips to the beach and nothing says amateur like using your old Nike gym bag as a weekender bag. At this point in your life, gentlemen, I hope you have the sense to realize that college living is in the past. You need to upgrade to the finer things. That means throw away those “Get your tickets to the gunshow” t-shirts and buy yourself some nice polo shirts. This also means that you need to invest in a nice travel bag for an impromptu trip to see that long distance friend or weekend at the beach with the boys. Here are a few travel bags that will make you want to get you your car and just drive away to your favorite vacay spot.

These bags ain’t your daddy’s travel bags, they are the upgrade that a gentleman like yourself needs. I know some of these bags cost a pretty penny but it will be something that will be in your wardrobe for yours to come. Don’t fret if you don’t have the cash for these bags because the last thing you want is not to have money to do that actual traveling. Store like Urban Outfitter, J. Crew and Banana Republic have travel bags for men that still look sophisticated without being pricey. I chose these bags because they are top notch and the colors are very classic and shy from the usual black. Pick a color to fit your personality if you please. If you choose a leather bag, make sure you buy leather protector to ensure that your investment lasts for years to come.
