I came to the realisation that many fashion savvy men have been sporting a backpack for some time. It’s a transitional accessory that carries over seamlessly without looking out of place in any season. Gone are the days where the only thing men needed was a pocket to carry their loose change. The twenty twelve male has a vast array of essentials to carry around, such as the iPad, magazines, gym kit and spare clothes for the evening – feel free to fill in any blanks I have over looked.
A backpack brings a somewhat nostalgic feeling because it was probably the first bag your Mum bought you for school. Although it more than likely had a graphic of Thomas The Tank Engine or Ninja Turtles on the front, with its only real purpose being to carry your lunch box. Fast forward 20(ish) years and the backpack is now a stylish accessory that can be used to compliment an outfit.
For those of you after a distinctive type of backpack to accommodate your adventures this summer, look no further. Hershel have teamed up with Urban Outfitters to bring an online exclusive in the form of the ‘Camouflage Heritage Backpack’.
