As a totally fan of leather bags for both men and women, I just collect some really nice types of leather bags here and want to help the one who still can not understand the difference among so many types of leather bags. I will write as much details as possible and really hope my article can help someone.
Tote bags: always with large capacity, in many different shapes like square and trapezoid, flat bottom sometimes, usually made by stiff material.
Hobo bags: characteristic slouch design style, shape with half-moon style and always made by soft material.
Satchel bags: popular among students at first, so called school bag and always with long strap, flat bottom usually and made by soft-sided material.
Clutch bags: also called evening bag and sometimes called minaudiere bag too, and with tiny or petite size.
Messenger bags: when used by female, always called crossbody or crossover bag, with double handle and longer strap than satchel bags and shoulder bags.
Leather portfolio briefcase: one kinds of leather briefcase for men, also called conference bag, made by genuine cowhide leather generally.
All of those bags are what I have know so far, and some famous brand own their unique bags type actually, but we should just learn some types of bags like those. And some bags like leather weekend bag, leather barrel bag and leather drawstring bags are not popular as usual, not just leave them alone!
