Words by Mr Peter Henderson
It's official. The tote bag has made the cut and can now be seen swinging from the arm of even the manliest of men. Whether you are bearing gifts for your beloved or lugging your wet swimming kit back from the beach, the tote bag gets our vote as one of summer's most practical and stylish accessories. For occasions when a briefcase is not sufficiently capacious (or feels too formal), and a holdall is too large, the trusty tote saves the day. From leather, to canvas, to one that has a towel and pair of swim shorts included, click through the gallery above to see five of our favourite totes for the summer.
