BAGAHOLICBOY SHOPS: 6 Vertical Pouches For Men


Crossbody slings in a vertical format have risen in popularity over the years. You will find them mostly under the men’s range of your favourite designer brands. They make for an excellent choice if you find the standard east-west formats a tad too bulky for the grab-and-go.

Aside from an easy-to-use front flap, most of them are also tall enough to slide your mobile phone in. This way, everything stays neatly secure within the compact pouch whenever you’re out and about. Keen to get one? Here are six cool options crafted in canvas with the respective designer motifs.

01Burberry Check Print Leather Robin Bag, SGD2290
You can think of this as the TB Bag made for men. Rendered in a vertical silhouette, it measures 19 cm high and 13.5 cm wide. The Dark Birch Brown check detailing will go well with most outfits. A highlight element is the shiny Thomas Burberry Monogram clasp set right in the middle, with shiny silver-tone finishing. BURBERRY

02Celine Phone Pouch in Triomphe Canvas, SGD890
Celine has designed the Phone Pouch in Triomphe Canvas to fit standard mobile devices. It also comes with three card slots and pockets that make it a full-fledged bag for daily wear. The leather strap is also adjustable (from 35 cm to 66 cm) via the knotted pulls on the sides. This offers you two different looks depending on your styling choices. CELINE

03 Dior Hit The Road Vertical Pouch, SGD2350
Dior’s rendition is slightly more complicated than the rest, but for good reasons, of course. It has three distinct compartments, beginning with the front flap pocket for keeping small essentials or slips of papers. The main zip compartment is great for storing everything else, like a phone, wallet and a small pack of mints.

And if you’re wondering about the third, just flip it over to the back. There, you’ll find an exterior patch pocket for all your quick-access needs. DIOR

04 Gucci Horsebit 1955 Mini Bag, SGD1710
The classic combination of beige/ebony GG Supreme canvas and gold-tone Horsebit hardware will simply never go wrong. Paired with white leather on the edges and shoulder strap, this sleek piece measures 17 cm by 11.5 cm. In other words, a boxy bag built for slinging casually over the shoulder with ease. GUCCI

05Louis Vuitton S-Lock Vertical Wearable Wallet, SGD2520
The matte black S-Lock transforms into a simple magnetic closure sitting atop Louis Vuitton’s contemporary vertical wearable wallet. The Monogram Macassar pairs with expected black cowhide leather, evident in the pipings, trimmings and shoulder sling.

A dedicated smartphone compartment within the 19 cm by 12 cm bag makes this a highly functional design not to be missed. LOUIS VUITTON

06Versace La Greca Signature Phone Pouch, SGD820
Versace’s rendition is definitely the most straight-forward. Thanks to the two-zip closure at the sides, it scores A+ in terms of convenience. The V-shape front flap also has a snap button closure if you prefer to access it the conventional way. It’s a solid all-rounder that you can wear like a lanyard or mini bag as you please. VERSACE
