Catering to gents seeking a bag that’s versatile for both work and play, Thom Browne has rolled out its attache backpack. The bag looks like a regular briefcase at first glance, but can actually pull double-duty as a rucksack, with the adjustment of a few straps.

This means that one can carry it as a regular briefcase when going for an important meeting, and transform the very same bag into a backpack on slightly more relaxed days.

Thom Browne’s attache backpack.

Known for his impeccable tailoring (whether in regular proportions or exaggerated styles) and truly American sensibilities, Thom Browne’s designs are often inspired by icons of the 1950s and 1960s.

Removable straps will transform the briefcase into a backpack.

The smooth leather number measures 43cm x 32cm x 8.25cm, and features a removable harness with adjustable shoulder straps. Like all of the designer’s products, the briefcase bears its signature red, white and blue tag on its top handle.

Upon opening the structured bag, one will find that its interior is covered in Thom Browne’s signature tricoloured print — along with multiple pockets to store essential items and documents.

So the next time someone tells you that backpacks are not made for the boardroom, prove him or her wrong, by strutting into the office with this boxy number.
