What bag should I carry to work – and what is appropriate?
Picking the perfect bag or accessory for work is no longer a straightforward task. As modern workplaces become increasingly relaxed and our lifestyle requirements ever different, so too are the choices of our bags and accessories. Today, a successful tech founder who slips in a fitness class between work is more likely to be toting around a backpack as compared to something more formal such as a briefcase.
As such, there’s no single, universal answer to this. Every workplace is different and you’ll have to figure out what works best for yours. In order to help you along, we’ve curated a list of five essentials to help you better make that choice.
Regardless of whether your job calls for a suit and tie at a vast corporation or a hoodie at a dressed-down office, the HUB 2.0 is perfect for anyone that is constantly on the go – be it to the gym or even a date night right after work. The sleek, minimal and luxurious exterior is partly what lends this bag its versatility. The other part of the equation lies in the considered interior of the bag. In-built with a plethora of compartments, the bag neatly stores and conveniently separates your work and gym essentials so you never have the hassle of finding your items. To ensure your expensive tech gadgets are not only secure and safe, the compartments are built with durability and waterproofing in mind. The HUB 2.0 is crafted in water resistant high density nylon with leather trimmings and boasts a soft, luxurious microfibre interior so that your items stay well protected while you’re on the go.
Available in 3 different colours – Black, Navy and Olive.
2. The Neo Soft Briefcase

It features compartments not only for work documents but also for your tech essentials such as tablets, laptops, mobile phones, SD/SIM cards and cables so that they’re neatly and safely organised, ready for you to access when you need them. With the detachable and adjustable strap, your styling options have also expanded - from handheld to carrying it on your shoulders or across your body - making it an ever versatile piece in any men’s wardrobe. Crafted in luxurious pebble grain leather, this bag is soft and supple, making it perfect for both casual and formal work environments.
