109199827Rule #1 of men's handbags: you definitely need one.Justin Sullivan/Getty Gentlemen: We've recently taught you how to match your shoes to your pants, how to dress like a hotshot without breaking bank, and how to make sure your suit fits properly.

Now it's time for a lesson in work-appropriate bags. But first, let's get one thing straight: You need a bag. Every career professional needs a reliable work bag — for your papers, your electronics, your wallet, your umbrella, your ham sandwich.

We're not talking the nylon laptop bag you've had since college, or the bulky black briefcase your dad lugged to work (yeah, you know the one). We're talking stylish, professional and practical work bags.

And with sales of men's bags on the rise, these handy accessories won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

Why it's useful: If you're planning on hitting the gym after work, a duffel bag is the perfect option. But be careful, there is a definite line between casual and professional here, so please ditch your old, smelly Nike bag and opt for a more refined version, like the ones below.
