Men's Weekender Bags

For this week's menswear Monday post, Jordan is showing a casual yet put-together look featuring his new weekender bag. I bought this for him for Christmas from J. Crew Factory because I knew he would actually use it. It's the perfect size for a quick weekend trip. Men's weekender bags are essential especially for a weekend or short-term travel. Weekender bags are also great to use as a carry-on. I also love the look and color of the bag. It comes in olive and blue, but I thought the khaki color would go with more pieces in his closet. It's nice because he can carry it by the two leather straps, or opt to carry it with the longer, adjustable shoulder strap which happens to be removable. I've learned that when you're buying for guys, convenience and practicality is key! Now let's talk about his outfit. We love the look of a sweater layered over a button up/tie combination. It's not too dressed up, and it looks more mature and sophisticated as an everyday outfit. We put him in a blue gingham shirt and picked a navy blue tie that matched one of the colors in his shirt. This is a great way to tie a look together so it looks complete. We also wanted the blue shades to be similar in color to his dark denim. His shoe color choice was based on the color of the khaki weekender bag. Again, trying to subtly match his shoes with his bag - seriously, it's the easiest and best tip ever to make a look come together! See where you can find each piece below!
