The rightful downfall of the plastic bag paved the way for the tote to become the world's most relied-upon accessory. Whether on grocery store trips, park excursions, or long days at the beach, the tote is the perfect accessory for those times when your bag might be in for a beating.
But as well as the affordable shopper, the high fashion world fully embraced the tote, too, with the likes of Maison Margiela and Marni among those offering luxury iterations of this humble sidekick.
Tote bags are an essential that you will soon find yourself unable to leave the house without. With that in mind, we took to the net to round up the season's very best tote bags for men, at pretty much all budgets.
