Fortunately, the days when men simply put their cell phone, wallet and keychain in the pockets of their five-pocket jeans or had to hide their things in their friend’s handbag are over. Today, every man can choose from a large selection of bags and thus with the right handbags equip. Handbag is generally a very feminine term, but if you also include shoulder bags, business bags or jute bags under handbags, then everyone probably already has one. But the proportion of handbags in men is also increasing enormously. In many countries, over 50 percent of the male population already carry a handbag on a regular basis. According to relevant online shops, sales of men’s handbags are also increasing strongly in Asia.
The Men’s Handbag
In contrast to the women’s handbag, in which the appearance, i.e. the design, is probably the first priority, men place more value on functionality. In addition to practicality, quality and design also play an important role. Since men carry high-quality (and expensive) technology items with them in addition to their wallet and keychain, the quality and practicality are very understandable. Whether in leisure time or in the job, men are simply dependent on a certain basic equipment of technology. The smartphone, the headphones and the tablet or the digital SLR, everyone has their constant companions. According to a study, 61 percent of those surveyed who carry men’s handbags prefer to carry their money and cell phones in their hand rather than in their pockets for security reasons.
Men’s Handbag Growth Segment
The increasing number of calico bag (กระเป๋าผ้าดิบ , which is the term in Thai) sales to men in thailand and asia make men’s handbags a current growth market in the fashion industry. Since the security of the content plays a major role as described, the men are also willing to spend a little money for it. Numerous designers and high-quality labels are therefore at the forefront in the development of trendy men’s handbags.
