Truth be told, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect tote since college. There have been a few top contenders but none I’ve really loved using as a daily carry-all that’s appropriate for both work and after hours. I’m pretty lazy when it comes to switching out bags so finding one that was classic enough to tote around 24/7 as well as being appropriate enough for the office was a tall task. Luckily, I stumbled across this Brooklyn Tote from Mark & Graham a few months ago and it’s been my daily bag ever since.
It’s the most buttery leather bag I’ve found in a long time and has a small pocket on the inside – perfect for your phone, keys, and work badge. Like most Mark & Graham items, it’s also monogram-ready which really sealed the deal for me. If you’re in the market for a new tote, I highly recommend this one. It’s currently sold in cognac (pictured above), black, and aubergine (how fancy). Happy shopping!
