Men’s Vintage Genuine Leather Shoulder Bag! Competition, Giveaway!

So I go through bags like chocolate! I love messenger bags since I was 13 in secondary school. Since my first one I haven’t looked back and wouldn’t dream of doing so. They are easy to use and don’t drag your back down, sure rucksacks are great if they are for weight purposes and you are in the army training!

So being blunt, I decided to share the love a little! I thought, wouldn’t it be great for a competition where you could win your very own messenger bag! Yes I said it, your own! Whoop! Now this one happens to be genuine leather, great right? Vintage and brown, I would want it but I have one and another in waiting so I thought I would let one lucky winner have the honour!

Now this bag is pretty impressive, you can take a look at it here through Amazon! It is normally £100!! Although at the moment in the sales for £48, still not a bad little competition prize right? So you should know what to do by now!? Just enter below and keep your fingers crossed.

  38. Spencer Broadley Reply

    I don’t tend to use a bag (except canvas bags when I go shopping) – when I do need a bag I generally use an old black laptop bag that has seen better days so a new bag would replace that

  39. Julie Carwardine Reply

    I use a few different bags, depending on what I wear but would love this to carry my DSLR in!

  45. I actually would like to win this for my husband, he takes himself off for a walk on a regular basis and the bag he uses is an old ammo bag which isn’t very nice, so I would like this bag to replace it

  46. Um, I am using the free plastic bags you get at airport security. Embarrassing.

  47. stephanie coals Reply

    Currently using a battered adidas satchel, would love this, its so much more stylish !

  48. My husband doesn’t use a bag at all, and he needs one because I end up trying to stuff his specs, camera lens cap and wipes, and vario9us notebooks and paperwork into my own bag. He’s been promising to get one for years!


    I currently use various sized rucksacks as I find them easier to carry when I am using my bike or if I am travelling by train, I will take the smallest one. They aren’t exactly very stylish & two of them have broken zips. This bag is far more fashion stylish & not looking like school kids or hikers bag

  50. Kirsty Woods Reply

    I use an old backpack, had it for years and it really needs replacing

  51. Helen Thurston Reply

    At the moment my husband is using an knackered old rucksack of my daughters (thankfully she’s never been into pink and girly things) but he could really do with something more practical like this messenger bag.

  52. Val Burman Reply

    Great bag for travelling up to London on train and tube, need this as my present bag is not big enough to be hands free!

  53. Katy Malkin Reply

    I’d be gettig this for my husband. All he has is a laptop bag!!

  54. A mouse my cat brought in chewed half the strap of my current canvas messenger bag, so I desperately need a new one. The mouse has since been re-released into the wild, so the new bag should be safe from nibbling rodents.

  55. I have a Michael Kors bag at the moment but the leather has scuffed abit and starting to look taccy would love a new bag!

  56. debbi ruskin Reply

  64. jo liddement Reply

  69. Mary Baldwin Reply

    I currently use an old canvas bag that I bought in a market years ago. It’s very battered and I can’t put loose pens in as they’d disappear from the hole in the bottom corner!

  70. I’m using a generic laptop bag. Its not the most sutiable for the job, and it’s starting to look tatty at the edges.

  71. Susan Smith Reply

    My bag is years old, i like the style and colour of this one

  72. T. Brailey Reply

  75. My bag is a battered canvas shoulder bag that has seen better days. It smells baaaaaaad.

  76. Sheri Darby Reply

  84. Gayatri Gogoi Reply

    Using a ratty backpack, need a new bad as it’s falling to bits

  85. Chris Hobbs Reply

    I currently use a ruck sack that I had in college its a brown leather one and still looks super cool and I would be very reluctant to get rid of it completely. The one up for grabs though is equally cool and a tad smaller so for lightweight days and about town this would be awesome x

  106. Natalie Gillham Reply

    This would be the perfect bag for when i go out dancing with my friends as I can wear it across my body without it being too clumsy and yet it is still big enough for all my night out essentials. The leather bag I usually use when i go out dancing is now too tatty to use, so I love to win this replacement, thanks for the chance x

  107. Theresa Alison Reply

    Would be for my son who is starting an apprenticeship in a few mths, be nice to give him this to make him look more professional and would look much nicer than his school Nike man bag he has at the moment.

  110. Sarah Parker Reply

    I have brown bag. I would love to have something new for spring

  111. Carrie Talbot-Ashby Reply

    I’m using a backpack! 🙂 Its great and serves its purpose, but would be so lovely to have something new! x

  112. Natalie White Reply

    I’m using a Sainsbury’s bag because mine broke just after Christmas, but if I won I think I’d give this to my lovely partner, who has been using a free bag he got given at a convention for the last 3 years! He’s been looking for something just like this 🙂

  113. Wendy Tolhurst Reply

    I am entering on behalf of my husband. He doesn’t currently carry a bag but, because I am disabled, I am forever getting him to hold my bag. He hates it and so if he had his own bag, I could put a couple of bits inside and he could put what he needs inside and there would be no need for me to carry a handbag.

  114. Edward Guerreiro Reply

    I am using an O’Neil backpack. It would be nice to have a bag like this, which I feel is more suited to my age.

  115. Beryl drake Reply

    My bag at the moment has a small hole in the bottom so definitely need a new ine

  116. Kim Webster-Marsh Reply

    Hubby would love this bag, his birthday is coming up so my fingers are crossed 😀

  117. Having tried one of these new fashionable leather shopper bags with handbag to match and mobile pouch dangly thing for my phone I got really really fed up with all the paraphernalia and took my sad old fake leather brown, one-bag-holds-all-and-doesn’t-make-a-fuss-about-it to a local cobbler who repaired the strap that was broken and – such a relief – I’m using the old bag again! It does the job, properly!

  118. Keith Edward Ripley Reply

    I could do with this when I go to Italy in the summer

  119. karen laing Reply

    I don’t think my bag comes into it as I’m female and I’m entering for my son who would like this ,it’s just his style x

  120. Deborah Mackenzie Reply

    At the moment I am using a bag I bought in Croatia. It is bright and colourful.
