What: Every guy (and gal, too) needs a sturdy, stylish backpack, the ultimate in utilitarian fashion. This leather and canvas carryall from Will works as a city sack for laptop-toting and a knapsack for light mountaineering action. It comes filled with a plush pillow, should you need to rest your head during a lightrail ride or under the stars.
Where: From The Clotherie's haberdasher Greg Eveloff comes menswear store Bonafide Goods at UNION. We highly recommended the hyper-curated shop to those seeking quality denim, shirts, hats, ties, and, well, just about anything else a well-dressed gent might need.
Style It: Match the backpack's simple beauty with such chic, minimal pieces as a merino wool and cashmere blend sweater from The Elder Statesman, faded black Acne jeans, and a beaver fur-lined Loro Piana bomber jacket. Tap into this winter's oxblood trend with a pair of lace-up Alexander McQueen boots.
