I'm a guy, and I've been on TPF for a while now so I figured that I should share my bag collection as well, especially after seeing other guys' collections.

This is my collection. I've had some of these pieces for years now (I'm still in love with them like when I first got them!), while some of them are more recent.

I'll also post closer pictures by designer.

The Dior Gaucho has such amazing aged distressed leather that I had to get two of them!

Here are my Balenciaga bags. I reall love the tassels and distressed leather of Balenciaga bags, so I had to get at least one. Turned out to be three!!!

I don't know the name of the bag in the middle. I saw it at Holt Renfrew in Spring 2010 and it was love at first sight. I bought it right away. If someone can please help me identify the name of the bag, I'd really appreciate it.

From left-to-right:

- Besace messenger bag
- Large bag which can double as a messenger
- Folk bag

My Prada collection started with the glazed leather destructured briefcase. It was one of those bags that I knew I had to have right away when I saw it at Holt Renfrew. The other Prada bags in nylon eventually followed.

What I like about the nylon bags is that I can be more rough with them. They're very durable and well-made. I'm not normally a big fan of patterned bags, but the camouflage was very understated and nice, and the backpack had an edgy pattern, so I bought both.

And then I saw the Dragon Tattoo messenger/shopper, and it had the perfect edge to add to my collection. The dragon is made of pieces of metallic leather and metal embroidered onto the nylon.

From left-to-right:

- Camouflage nylon messenger bag
- Glace leather briefcase
- Dragon Tattoo messenger/shopper
- nylon backpack

My newest piece is my Celine Vertical Gusseted Cabas bag in solid black on the outside and orange on the inside. I love the contrast colour lining as well as the minimalist nature of the bag with its clean lines.

The gussets are made of a racing-glove mesh which makes the bag very sporty, but I prefer to keep the gussets closed because I like the closed look better.

By the way, please excuse my terrible photography. I should've taken the pictures in daylight, but I took them at night with flash photography because this was the only time that I felt encouraged to take them all out of their storage boxes. The storage boxes are arranged like a jigsaw puzzle in my closet due to lack of space, so I didn't look forward to putting them back.

I will share pictures of wallets and other accessories soon. In the meantime, here is a picture that I took earlier of my Dior watch collection:

It's like a work-out to get something out of my closet. It's worse when I'm trying to rush to leave, and haven't grabbed a bag yet.
