The fashion pick of the month always features a shoe and bag combo that works well together. When it comes to menswear, though, the options are slim, given that most men are shy about carrying around what might be referred to as a "man bag" or "murse" (you know, a man purse.) 

Briefcases, on the other hand, are a completely different story. Most men in the world of business need a briefcase, whether it's to carry a laptop, paperwork or just to appear official. So of course, a bag is socially acceptable among men if it can be referred to as a briefcase.

When it comes to footwear, boots are always acceptable, and luckily there are a hundred options, many of which can even be dressed up a little.
