A good man bag is hard to find? Hardly.

A good man bag is hard to find? Hardly.

We've rounded up some standout satchels you can find around town that are more masculine than man-purses. (Fresh in my memory is Zach Galifianakis carrying what was quite clearly a purse in "The Hangover": "Indiana Jones wears one." "So does Joy Behar.")

Whether it's carrying gym clothes or laptops, a man's bag is an opportunity to showcase personal style, be it zombie girls and mutant bats from Sourpuss Clothing or clean lines and classic stylings of brands like Kenneth Cole and Herschel Supply Co.

Those looking to get personal should head to Clintonville's Seagull Bags. Waterproof and durable, Seagull handcrafts their customizable one-shoulder messengers. They can replicate, through stitching and patching, designs such as a customer's own artwork.
