New man bags from Sher­papa

Los Angeles Times - - SHOPPING -

The orig­i­nal idea be­hind new men’s ac­ces­sory brand Sher­papa Sup­ply Co. was to fash­ion mod­ern, so­phis­ti­cated bags that were an al­ter­na­tive to flow­ery ny­lon sacks in which dads toted around baby gear.

How­ever, non-dads have taken to the bags as well, said Zach McDuffie, who co-founded the La­guna Beach­based line with ac­tor Matthew Mor­ri­son. “Women have such an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for bags,” he said. “We wanted to de­sign a line that would be stylish for men — for any­thing they do.”

The mul­ti­pur­pose bags (ideal for car­ry­ing around work or travel items, tools or gym clothes) fea­ture bri­dle leather han­dles and solid brass hard­ware, and they are made from waxed or heavy-duty can­vas.

McDuffie said the idea for the line, which also in­cludes T-shirts, hats and ban­dan­nas, came about af­ter he be­came a fa­ther 2 years ago and sought sleeker op­tions to the tra­di­tional di­a­per bag. The bags re­tail from $175 to $259 and are avail­able at sher­papa.com and gilt.com.
