Sayani posted on 17 June

Denims may rise and fall or taper and flare with the swing of season, but messenger bags will remain a constant in most men’s lives. So, we went about the city scouting for messenger bags that are not just stylish to look at, but are also within your budget.

Traveller’s Home @ New Market

New Market is perhaps the only market in town that has so many bag shops under one roof. We combed through all of them and finally came to a stop at Traveller’s Home (shop no. F-4 and A-48) where we found a wide variety of men’s messenger bags. From leather to canvas, big to compact — the choices are abundant and are enough to spoil you. With their prices starting at INR 800, these bags with a year’s warranty are a real good deal.
