Ask any heavily-tatted biker dude in a leather jacket and a few choice piercings about their version of a tote bag, and they probably look at you like you've got a death wish. The thing is, a tote bag isn't for everyone. The version you probably have in mind are the ones you take to Whole Foods or to the secondhand bookstore. Sorry, good intentioned flimsy fabrics just don't cut it with the bad boys. The ones bad boys wouldn't mind slinging over the shoulder look like this rugged calfskin leather Downtown tote bag by Saint Laurent, one that will go well with a leather jacket and a dirt bike. A confession to make is that Saint Laurent has had this design in its womenswear catalogue since 2007 – under Stefano Pilati's era – previously fashioned in patent leather and even spotted on the likes of Jessica Biel, Cindy Crawford, Jessica Alba, Kate Moss, and Salma Hayek, just to name a few. The other reason this tote bag was so well-received nearly two decades ago is its ability to store everything under the sun for a day out. Just know that a spacious bag is never underrated. And one more thing to note, this one probably smells like great sex too.
