The Working Man: Leather Portfolios

by Jordan Zeman | July 10th, 2014   

Today’s working man has paired down his essentials considerably. Gone are the days of mountains of paperwork, clunky cell phones and thick laptops. Instead, many guys are opting for a much lighter work bag, especially with the variety of tablet computers and slim smart phones that can take the place of products from the Stone Age. While some men will still want a messenger or tote to carry things like workout clothes and bike locks, a sleek leather portfolio is an essential for keeping your office supplies organized.

These light, small accessories are the prefect grab and go option for a man on the job. You can leave the large bag in the office and take your portfolio to a lunch meeting, or you can carry it on-site for easy access to your most-used items without the bulk. Either way, these cases are quickly becoming the male equivalent of the women’s slouchy clutch. They are both stylish, utilitarian and perfectly on-trend.
