THE BACKPACK EDIT

The Unbeatable Benefits of Backpacks

Thanks to todays relaxed dress codes THE BACKPACK HAS PRETTY MUCH KICKED THE TRADITIONAL BRIEFCASE AND TOTE TO THE CURB.

Men today are opting for backpacks to schlep their stuff, whether daily commute to the office or a weekend excursion. They distribute weight evenly and the best kinds are like a hands-free version of a tote—simple, stylish and utilitarian. They hold a ton of stuff, make easy work out of packing for your average work day or weekend trip and look pretty badass while doing it!

SUPERDRY
