side bags for men
HHV

From baseball caps and bracelets to luxury bags, shop accessories of all kinds at our accessories hub.

Nobody likes filling their pockets to the brim. For one, it’s uncomfortable to have heavy pockets flapping around as you move; it’s also not great for your clothes, changing the shape of them and often stretching them. The solution? Side bags.

Small side strap bags are an instant fix to the problem of pocket overpopulation. These accessories are small enough to be unimposing when it comes to styling, but big enough to fit your essentials and, if you get the right bag, add a touch of personality to your look while they’re at it.

Highsnobiety product curators are all about form and function, and have scoured the net for the best side bags for men, accruing selections that range from luxury names like Off-White to utilitarian masters like Patagonia. It’s in that wide-ranging nature that you’ll find the true power of the men’s side bag: there’s a style for everyone.
