A Professional Way To Carry Your Work – Right Vs. Wrong

One is classic, professional, and looks great with a suit or sport jacket.

The other is what you wore in college and will damage your jacket.

My advice:

Invest in a quality leather briefcase, messenger bag, or satchel.

 Wrong---Backpack-with-a-suit

Now I know many of you will say – but I carry a LOT of stuff!

This may the be true – and in your case choose the tool that serves you best.

However I find that many men are saying this because they are carrying more than they need or don’t want to change their habits.

    Black leather briefcase is more formal compared to the chocolate brown colored one. Is your office attire always formal?

    I saw a guy at the train station on his way to work the morning: suit with nice colour, cut and tie matched with his black Oxford shoes. And then he threw a back-pack over his shoulder. Uggh!
