Shop IRL, Make sure to keep the Bag

That 90’s fanny pack may be on the way out. Hooray! From some of the street styles seen near the latest Menswear shows, the Shopping Bag may be your newest carry all. Straight from the store bought bags to matching the bag with your clothes to customized shopping bags with shoulder straps. The shopping bag is your ticket to major streetwear cred. From Paris to Milan the shopping bag is 2021’s IT bag for men.

NOT FAKE for Real

Gucci Fake Not Collection

#RealFake #FakeReal is one of my favorite subjects to blog about. This time around its Gucci doing their version on the Real Fake World of fashion. They have a fake Gucci logo with the duo colored stripe as seen in the 80’s. But that’s not the highlight as far as I can see. Its the Blatant, Bold wording on the bags and clothing that is the fun in this collection.

Side one has the word FAKE and on the other Side is the word NOT. Garments, T’s, Windbreakers have it too. But of course, it’s the Bags that everyone wants. I for sure would have tons of fun slinging one of these #RealNotFake bags around town. For now, here is the link to the goods. Might sell out quick, so hurry if you want some Fake Nots. Here’s a few pix from the Gucci Fake Not Collection:

And here’s some #Realfake bags I picked up on the NYC mid-town streetz in December 2019. I’ve been meaning to spray paint them with Flo orange and Flo pink, haven’t gotten around to it yet. But I did spray paint my wall a bit. Probably wasn’t my best moment during Covid-2020. But, I guess that’s just how we roll sometimes.

The Cartoon Bag Lady or Man

Yes, these are Real
Jump from Paper bags

Taiwan based brand: JumpFromPaper has bags and accessories that appear to look like a cartoon image when pictures are taken of them on real people.

I truly wonder if My pictures would come out like this or not? Because they do have bags for Men. See Below:

Jump from Paper mens bag

At the moment (3/21/15) the bags from JumpFromPaper aren’t available in U.S stores, buy are purchasable in Europe, Asia and on-line here.  When I went to the site, there were some comments on how you can also get some knock-offs at amazon.com for cheaper. But according to the reviews, it’s best to get the real thing.

Jump from paper 3

The Real JumpFromPaper bags range from $30 for a small purse to $139 for a pink or purple Spaceman backpack.  I suspect I would choose the $110 Adventure Backpack in grey, blue and white. BTW: The knock-offs I saw at Amazon start at $14.

These bags Look like fun! If it really does what the pictures look like it does, might be a great conversation starter. And oh, so super fun to share on Instagram…#nofilter needed.

I suspect it’s best to go with the real version. If I or one of my friends does get one of these. I’ll be sure to follow-up and let you know how they are. And how they look on Instagram

Rock or Not?  See you on the Streetz this weekend at Ward Villages, The Pink Tie Ball and Le Bistro. Have an Awesome Weekend wherever you live!
