Big thanks to NutSac for partnering with me on this video!
In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of http://www.iamalpham.com , http://www.AaronMarino.com , and http://www.peteandpedro.com is talking about the man bag. This video was in partnership with my favorite man bag company (NutSac).
The man bag is increasing essential accessory in the modern man's style arsenal. In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro goes over why you need a man bag, what makes a man bag a 'man bag', and how to pick one.
Why You Need a Man Bag
Alpha talks about the man bags he owns, and how a man bag has saved his life in the past. The bag has been functional (and incredibly valuable) and now it's becoming fashionable, comfortable, and advantageous rather than using pockets.
Alpha discusses all of the crap that men carry around these days (not including computers): phones which are getting bigger, wallets, keys, headphones, phone chargers, shades, and gum / mints. With a man bag, your pockets are free from crap and you can carry stuff with style and class.
What Makes a Man Bag
Backpack - great for carrying heavy stuff. It's not a man bag!
Traditional and Modern Briefcases - the super structured formal option isn't that functional for carrying stuff other than paper and pens, and you don't see them that much anymore. If you have a computer, a modern briefcase is used. Both aren't man bags!
Messenger bags - not man bags either!
Man Bag Options
Where do you get a man bag? They are difficult to find- you can find messenger bags and computer bags but not a ton of man bag options!
Diesel Bags- overpriced for the quality. Some are funky but quality is crappy.
Nutsac Bags - the greatest name for a man bag! The bags are sassy, and Alpha gets tons of compliments on his bag.
Like stylish shoes, you need a variety of options for a variety of situations. You can't just have a computer bag. He covers stylish options for man bags: small to large and casual to dressy. Alpha has a multiple man bags for different situations and outfits. It's like a super cool accessory.
Buy a black tactical and fancy leather thigh pack instead of the "man purse". You want two so you can swap them out between outfits. Some are small or large. I prefer it cause it's better than carrying a purse over the shoulder. You can store things like pepper spray, a small firearm, gum, knives, cigars, ect. Good for hunting and cycling since its just two straps that go around the right or left upper thigh and looks absolutely bad ass. Nobody will mistake it for a terrible looking fanny pack and you can find them on Amazon for like $15 a piece. Look it up yourselves. I can sprint with them on and my hardcore gun buddies all bought them as well since its practical and lools tough. The ladies notice it and they like the manly look of it. Just make sure you get one that's not too edgy (has skulls or looks like metal steampunk bs). I prefer simple leathers in brown and black. Once you star wearing them you'll never know how you survived so long without them. Just please never wear them with suits xD and make sure it has two thigh straps and doesn't wear itself like a belt. ALSO don't carry man bags. You'll thank me later fellas.
I own a few Gucci pieces myself and its definitely not cheap. A bag for edc that you have to haul around over the shoulder seems like a good idea if you live in Europe. Over here in the West it honestly looks stupid because its out of place. People clown on you for it and I've never seen another man outside of college walk around with one on a normal day. I've been to most major city's here in the United States like NYC, Washington, Chicago, and cities in Texas. Ive yet to see a man walk around with one. I don't hate them but it looks ridiculous if you don't live in Paris, France. You do you though.
(These thigh holsters will last you a lifetime if you take care of them. Its also a lot less douchey to walk around with. A GUCCI bag looks strange and costs over $500) that being said I own Gucci and Tom Ford suits. You're kind of painting a target on yourself with a leather bag that says GUCCI on the sides of it whereas people tend to wanna fuck with you less when you have a hunting satchel strapped to your thigh. I carry 4 self defense tools in mine alone.
Great job Alpha,
Been carrying one for two years now and have never looked back. Built up a collection to match shoes and belts. I am of European origin and am used to calling them bags... I hear you on the meds. On the sartorial and accessories side, extra shoelaces and spare fountain pen ink cartridges are also a must. The biggest benefit, however, is the pristine condition in which carrying a bag leaves your clothes, as pockets are not weighed down and battered by stuff… If you get the hang of it and run with it, it’s a whole different world.
Keep up the good work...
you seem like a nice dude...but I would not describe you as an alpha male...and that's ok....I came here to find a review about a manbag......I agree that every dude needs a manbag! Ah....wait..I need to redefine the concept of an "alpha male"..thanks for that; keep up the great work
Ok guys but when you get married and have kids, you need to help mom carry stuff in your "man bag". Sippy cups, crayons, toys, snacks, extra outfit, diapers if needed, wipes, foldable potty training toilet seat, etc. If you could take at least 3 of these items out of mom's purse, it would help her A LOT.
No no no no i have a diamond plate tool box in my truck stuff that needs to be around my truck is every where I am and everything that needs to go in the store or anywhere with me fits my wallet so I don't need a purse
I have a bag, I use my bag all the time, it is an essential tool for me. My wife calls it a man bag and thinks I am ridiculous for carrying one. What the difference between a man and a woman carrying a bag ! Nothing !
