ISLAND LAKE, Ill., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Los Angeles Times recently reported on a new trend in China: Businessmen choosing designer handbags and purses over the traditional briefcases of the Western world. Will American businessmen soon follow suit? That's debatable, says LeatherTree.com, a leading online supplier of leather briefcases, luggage and office accessories.
"In the US, businessmen still use briefcases, but many are turning to more casual looks such as leather padfolios and messenger bags – especially as more and more start carrying their laptops, iPads and tablets around with them," said Jacqueline Berger, president of Leather Tree, Inc. "Chinese businessmen on the other hand view their leather 'man purses' and handbags as status symbols that will bring 'status, dignity and boost your image.'"
No matter where they do business, visitors to LeatherTree.com will find a wide array of fine leather products to meet a large number of applications, including leather purses, leather briefcases, leather desk sets and accessories, leather luggage and backpacks (make great graduation gifts!), messenger bags, leather backpack purse options, and much more.
"While we may never see the trend catch on in the US as it has in China, Leather Tree carries a great selection of men's handbags, or 'man bags' as many people call them," said Berger. "These superbly-crafted leather bags are perfect for keeping any and all tech gadgets and/or travel accessories close by when commuting to and from work or on a business trip."
