The 15 Best Briefcases for Men to Buy in 2022

Courtesy of Retailer

As we’re starting to venture back into offices, now’s the time to start thinking about the right bags to carry our professional essentials. Sure, we could default to a sensible backpack or messenger bag, but if you want to look like you’re really going places, we recommend investing in some of the best briefcases for men.

A briefcase may seem like a relic of our pre-pandemic, nine-to-five work life when we wore suit and ties, but today’s best briefcases have evolved, combining style and function to meet our laxer work uniforms. Some of these briefcases have water-resistant linings, others have scratch-resistant fabrics, and one even comes with wheels. What they all have in common: the best briefcases for men are beautiful, durable, and approved by Men’s Health‘s fashion editors. Ahead are 15 of our favorites.

Slim Water Repellent Briefcase

Like every menswear essential in the past two years, even briefcases have received the athleisure treatment. Take this performance bag, which has the lean build of our favorite briefs combined with all-day-everyday specs including a moisture-wicking fabric and soft-but-grippy handles.

Best Refined Leather Briefcase

The Laptop Bag

Think of this as the Allbirds of briefcases. A minimalist, streamlined design topped with a water-resistant nylon fabric holds your daily essentials without much fuss. Leather handles keep it looking professional.

  • Material: Nylon, leather
  • Size: 16 x 2.4 x 8 inches

Here’s a leather bag that’s more business casual than formal. It’s slightly baggier than those buckled briefs of yore, but still has a refined finish to make it office-appropriate. Available in two colors, we prefer the brown one, which has a collegiate-striped strap that makes it an ideal graduation gift.

Alpha Bravo Academy Briefcase

Here’s a luxe travel brief that’ll get you from the tarmac to your office meeting. Lots of storage pockets for knick knacks and overnight clothes, while its navy nylon fabric makes for a polished finish.

@ Work-Brief, Gray, Large Expandable

Budget friendly, Briggs and Riley’s bestselling brief is moisture and stain-resistant so it can last through years of commuting. Customers love how lightweight it is given its ample storage.

Tecovas, a purveyor of dope-looking cowboy boots, also applies its Western craftsmanship to its marquee briefcase. Made with durable presidio leather, this slightly rugged, highly-stylish bag looks just as good as other leather briefcases worth thousands more.

Classic Multi Gusset Toploader Briefcase

A no-nonsense briefcase that gets the job done. Plus, it’s made with a military-grade nylon fabric that will last a lifetime.

For the past two years, Men’s Health fashion editors and writers have been trying and testing countless men’s briefcases. To narrow down our favorites, we evaluated briefcases based on their durability, comfort, and value. We also considered briefcases that had at least 1,000 five-star ratings on e-commerce sites we trust.
