Big bags can be functional and attractive.
Daily necessities weighing you down? As seen here around town, you’re not alone. Think organization first when bag shopping, says Demian Wendrow, buyer for The London Harness Company in Wellesley and Hingham. For example, since everything drops to the bottom of a vertical tote, roomy horizontal shapes are better choices. And for students, fitness buffs, or business travelers who carry heavy loads, Wendrow recommends the Ivar backpack. “It looks cool, keeps your hands free, and has three tiers that evenly distribute the weight for added comfort.” So if you think oversize carryalls are all alike, we bag to differ.
