Lets start with how many basic types are there to begin with (not counting the sports bags):

How many do we need ?


1 casual bag in leather

1 beach or summer bag

1 sports bag

1 formal

1 evening

…and you will find yourself sorted. Once you have the basic collection to meet your professional and personal style, you can add as many (or not add anymore) to your collection.

Our image consultant’s tip: If you don’t like moving things from one bag to another, then ideally get a structured bag for work use, a versatile softer leather bag for casual use and an evening clutch, all in classic colours like black or dark brown or tan.

Enjoy the bag swapping.
