Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome to Guys Buys, our new weekly segment dedicated to our male readers and the ladies who shop for them. Each week, our Menswear Specialist Mickey Sery will bring a roundup of seasonal products for men—whether you need some style assistance or just like to shop.

It's back-to-school season, and just because you're not heading to class doesn't mean you have to get left out of the shopping portion. Once a staple for campers and students, the backpack has become its own fashion accessory over the past few years. Not only does it help keep your hands free for coffee and phone calls, it also helps your posture and makes your pecs look bigger.

Pro tip: Search for packs made out of materials besides the standard canvas, and try to stay away from anything with mesh netting on the outside. After the jump, we've rounded up ten stylized adult picks from the likes of WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie, Raf Simons, Longchamp and more.
