It's not acceptable for men to carry tote bags at all francks, sorry. Stick to an ALICE pack (make sure you capitalise it so that everyone knows it's an acronym and not a woman's name) or just put stuff in your pockets (like a man)

Instead of a tote pack just stuff things into your socks or underwear

Weird question indeed. Actually wanted to offer a white tote to my little cousin (boy), was wondering if it was fine or a bit girlish --> considering that at his age this is something than can matter.

I could have kept it for me but I never carry anything.
I don't want to put him in a situation where he "has" to accept something that he actually doesn't feel like using it.

it's this one (got it a while ago, lying somewhere probably covered in dust)

my S2W8 tote that I've had for ~2 years now. pretty much ideal - enough space for a few days' clothes, if necessary, but also good for school/work stuff. 3 pockets, heavy weight canvas (18oz).

How do you react to someone carrying a Strand tote? I've seen loads of these recently:

Is this supposed to be some kind of cultural signifier? Or does everyone in my city just wish they lived in New York?

lol i live like three blocks from the strand (at least for the next four days)

as far as i know the strand received a ton of support for toughing it out and succeeding as a large independent bookstore in an expensive part of manhattan, surviving big chain bookstores, the internet/kindle etc. so that's definitely part of it

and i think there's a lot of overlap between people who support independent bookstores and people who use totes

Inadvertantly been accumulating totes at speed recently, here are my favourites

picked this up from an exhibition that was held at the Sainsbury Centre, great for making sure that everyone knows how much of an artbeast you are, bit too big aside from that though.

Image

Still somewhat surprised this was official glastonbury merch, really looks like some sort of bootleg. Either way, good for making sure that everyone knows that you went to glastonbury and is a nice yellow.

Image

from ya boy @vgtbls. Pretty great size actually, and glad its lightweight enough to shove into whatever other bag I'm carrying to avoid needing plastic bags. Also, good for making clear that you are a motivational and aspirational person. Would recommend.

Image

picked this up from my favourite coffee shop today (@artel on insta), decently thick cotton and has the advantage of making clear that you appreciate considered, mininal design.

been using this one occasionally for about a year, the texture is really interesting - it's 100% cotton but feels almost like a linen blend.

has science yet solved the problem of riding a bicycle and using a tote? so far the only conceivable solution i've seen is a basket which can be rather clunky.

I got a battenwear one which you can wear cross body. usually Ill carry them in my backpack if I'm shopping with my bike but don't think that's the answer you're looking for. If you use your bike like most people use a car I would highly recommend investing in panniers

If you have a city bike you can ride with a tote, it's just slightly annoying because totes are shit.

Get a basket probably, or a packable backpack. Front rack with cargo net works with tote nicely. Or actually rear pannier with cargo rack can work too.

^ i own that hl wallet tote now (they pop up on y!jp a bunch! it was like 27 dollars) lol. included that one cdg zip wallet for a size comparison... i did a little bit to reinforce the handles bc i wanna use it 4 class lol
i kinda wish it was a wallet with like, slots/pockets for real - it just has a coin purse type zipper on the back/non-embossed side - but i think it can be used as a very disorganized pocketless/slotless .. wallet.. thing if u keep the tote folded up and empty
