Messenger bags tend to have a more casual look, while crossbody bags can range from casual to dressy. Both bag styles are great for keeping your hands free and carrying your essentials.

How should you wear your messenger bag?

Messenger bags should be worn across the body, resting on your hip. Ensure the shoulder strap is adjusted to fit snugly and securely against your body. You can loop the strap around your body once or twice before fastening it for extra security. This will help keep the bag close to your body and reduce any swaying while you move.

What is the difference between a backpack and a messenger bag?

Backpacks are designed to be worn on both shoulders and distributed evenly across the back. Messenger bags, however, are designed to be worn across one shoulder and can often be adjusted for a more comfortable fit.

Distinction Between Leather Messenger Bags, Briefcases, and Backpacks

The difference between messenger bags, briefcases, and backpacks is that they all serve different purposes.

A messenger bag is a style of bag that has a long strap that can be worn over one shoulder with the bag in front of your body. This type of bag comes in many different styles, sizes and colours. A messenger bag is perfect for someone who wants to carry their laptop or tablet with them on the go.

A leather briefcase is a rectangular-shaped case that closes with a flap or zipper. It usually has two handles and an adjustable shoulder strap attached to it. A briefcase is usually carried like a suitcase by hand or over the shoulder, but it can also be carried by hand if you don't have any other items.

Backpacks are worn on both shoulders and have two straps that cross over the chest for stability. They are better for carrying heavier items such as textbooks or laptops, but they do not provide style points!

Horizontal vs Vertical Messenger/Briefcase Bags

There are two distinct styles of messenger/briefcase bags. There is the one you are probably most familiar with that is rectangular in shape but longer in length than height. This is sometimes known as a horizontal messenger bag. Then there is the other style of messenger bag, which is referred to as a vertical messenger bag. The vertical messenger bag is also a rectangle, except that it is oriented ninety degrees up so that the longer sides of the bag are vertical and not horizontal. Here are some other key differences between these two styles of messenger bags and why it may matter to you. 

Carrying room and storage

The original horizontal style often has more room and more pockets for carrying items that a messenger/briefcase would most likely to carry and deliver. The vertical messenger/briefcase bag may also have pockets, but if an item cannot be inserted to fit and carry in a pocket that is longer/taller than it is wide, you may not be able to carry anything that will not fit. 

The vertical bag is easier to stow on an airplane/train

A vertical messenger/briefcase bag, because of its narrower and longer/taller style, is often easier to stow on a plane. It fits better in overhead storage and fits perfectly underneath your seat if overhead storage is full. It is much more difficult to store a horizontal messenger/briefcase bag when there is no more overhead storage room and the storage under your seat will not accommodate the bag's dimensions. 

Carrying laptop

If you take a look at a vertical messenger/briefcase leather bag, you will immediately see that it would probably be improbable to store a laptop in it because of its orientation. You can still stow personal items, a phone, a wallet, and a tablet computer, etc., in the vertical bag, but if you expect to take a laptop with you, you will need the horizontal bag instead. Vertical bags also tend to be much more stylish, like a purse. 

Which Men's Bag to choose?

In the end, which men's bag to choose to go to work?

  • Your choice of bag should mainly focus on:
  • Your professional environment
