Stuffed trouser pockets are unsightly. And as the modern man evolves, a man bag becomes indispensable for storing your tablet, gym gear, laptop and all other on-the-go items.

Whether you need to stash some essentials for when you’re roaming about the bustling city, sleeping over at her place or headed to gym – I-Scream & Red are made for utility and allow you to do it in style.

The recycled seat belt straps gives the bags a raw, edgy finish – and will ensure that your valuables are safely buckled up. C’mon, carrying a piece of your favourite machine with you, even when you’re not driving? Now that’s fly. But if you’re not the eccentric type, normal straps are an option, too.

And if you question the manliness of wearing a man bag, doubt not. Tough guys Kanye West and David Beckham are both regularly seen donning one. So get with the program, bruh.
