The bloggers at W Magazine weigh in on some of the week's best, and most-puzzling, swag bags. "Some goodies, as in the school supplies-riddled bags at Alexander Wang, are completely useful.

Also playing the practicality card was Lacoste, which smartly left a zip-up satchel on every chair -- perfect to haul the daily loot collected en route." [Editors' Blog]
