Manbags have come a long way from Kel from Kath and Kim’s grey pleather pouch. There are many bags on the high street to choose from, starting with the bag that kicked off the whole trend. The cotton tote was a staple with young men in Japan for years before becoming trendy with emo kids and hip young things over here. Burton’s bag is a lovely holdall perfect for a weekend away, or just for storing your laptop. Similar classic style, but slightly smaller, Zara’s satchel is perfect for everyday use. Lastly, Ollie & Nic make wonderful women’s bags and their burgeoning men’s collection features the same quality and style. See after the jump for the top five and product links.

I mentioned yesterday that knee high shorts aren’t easy to carry off, but it’s a bit of a dilemma because purely from a fashion (rather than comfort) perspective 3/4 length trousers are looking a bit dated. I’ve picked out an outfit based around a pair of navy tailored shorts from Topman trying to keep it looking quite casual; keeping all the other items in an outfit low key and in a neutral colour palette is a good way of trying out new trends.

The word ‘Burton’ strikes fear into my heart, I immediately see identikit student types, the kind who appear on Shipwrecked and seem to think it’s ok to dress like a surfer. Even if you’re at university in Leeds, and it’s November. I’ve put my prejudices to one side for a second and tried to fine some nice things from Burton, they are after all one of the few high street stores for men. Steering clear of any t-shirt bearing the words retro, vintage, or anything in gothic script I managed to find this rather nice gingham shirt for £25. It seems like a similar cut to the flattering slim Topman shirts about so I reckon that’s a bargain. See after the jump for more Burton finds.
