Diesel Black Gold
A little bit preppy and a little bit grungy, this duffle kit bag also has a utilitarian military feel to it. Shamelessly bash it about as the bag will look cooler with age.
Price: £425

All Saints
Pockets bulging with wallets, keys and loose change don't exactly make for a clean silhouette, so pile your effects in this soft chocolate bag. It's also slightly distressed for that metropolitan grunge look that All Saints does so well.
Price: £75

Mulberry
Complete with a dog tag detail and choice of straps, this soft leather holdall in RAF blue will unleash any man's inner Maverick. It's also roomy enough for a long weekend away - just don't forget those Aviators.
Price: £895

Topman
This charcoal twill briefcase is the perfect beginner's man bag as it can be passed off as a laptop case. The leather trim gives it a pleasing 'trendy teacher' undertone, and after a few months of toting this you'll be ready for something more daring.
Price: £32
