Like it or not, belt bags or fanny packs are in for the season. Spotted on major fashion houses’ runways last year, belt-bag fever has slowly swept across Indonesia as well—you can spot them worn by gents right across the capital city. And we get the appeal. Belt bags are small, practical, and can be worn around your waist or slung over your shoulder. While men don’t have millions of things to carry with them, a jeans pocket alone isn’t enough (where will you put your mobile phone charger?). With this in mind, we have compiled five designer belt bags that are not only practical, but also have the swag.
