Bauer's Back! The coolest man to ever carry a satchel is in London.

After hearing that the cast of tv show 24 were filming the new series in London my first thought was whether Jack Bauer (played by Kiefer Sutherland) was still carrying his super cool men’s satchel.  


After a quick search I found a brilliant photo of Sutherland falling to the ground having been “shot” with his tough bag breaking his fall. It’s great to see that four years have passed and he’s still using the same bag – surely evidence that satchels really are the bag to get if you want one that is hardwearing yet still manly and cool. And we all know that Jack Bauer really is one of the coolest as you can see in this article which was one of the first blogs I wrote about men's satchels on the screen almost a year ago.

Being a fan of the show I can’t wait for the new series to start, this time with Bauer now a fugitive, wanted by the CIA but still finding himself in the middle of the action. The most recent pictures of the set show an overturned taxi on fire and Sutherland and his co-star Mary Lynn Rajskub (playing Chloe O’Brian) hobbling away, covered in bloody makeup and bruises.


Hopefully this series will be just as exciting as the previous ones. It airs in the US on May 5th and will come to the UK shortly afterwards on Sky 1.


Of course, if you want to get yourself a stylish and practical men's leather satchel, you know where to have a look.  If you need a little reminder, then this super secret link may help you remember!

Even Tough Men Use Satchels


Now, although I’ve always been a fan of the old school satchel, this style of bag has made a recent re-entry into the fashion industry. There are many reasons for this, though I like to believe that the main one is that Jack Bauer (CTU agent portrayed by Kiefer Sutherland) wears one of these timeless bags in the award-winning TV series 24.


Bauer is not only ranked as #1 in a list of “TV’s Toughest Men” by Sky 1, but also in “The 20 All Time Coolest Heroes in Pop Culture” by Entertainment Weekly. This just goes to show that the trend for satchels must be down to the fact that they make you look tough yet cool; what every man wants!


I must say that however cool Jack looks with his canvas satchel, he would look even better with a naturally suntanned, all leather satchel. Although Matt assures me that normally these bags aren’t used to carry Baretta 92s or Walther PPKs.
