Zak: This is such a good question! Men’s pants usually have larger pockets that can carry bulkier objects and in theory that should solve your problem (wallet in the back pocket, keys and phone in front pockets). Of course, slimmer cut pants are fashionable for men right now and so pockets in men’s pants are getting smaller and smaller and objects in them only serve to make the wearer look lumpy. Besides that, you’re probably not going to be able to fit a water bottle or a snack in your pants pocket. Most guys I know carry a backpack, even though that can seem a little juvenile if you’re out of school (although my dad carries a backpack everywhere he goes and he’s a full fledged adult). If you want something similar to that but a little lighter, you could also go for a small, drawstring backpack. Some guys also carry messenger bags or brief cases (or fancy messenger bag/brief case hybrids), which are more mature versions of the backpack. Although this article is written specifically about bags men can wear to carry their ipads in, it is a generally good source for ideas about more stylish man bags. AskMen also has a helpful article on men’s bags. Man bags can be tricky to pull off, particularly if you are having trouble being read as male, but they are also pretty fashionable right now. You have a lot of choices, so choose something that you think goes with your overall style and best fits your needs.
