Since Monday’s “Back to School” post focused on geekynerdy wear that the ladies could rock in the classroom and on campus, I wanted to focus today’s round-up on some more masculine options. That said, I would totally buy any of these school accessories, so perhaps they’re actually more unisex (gender-neutral?). Regardless, I hope you enjoy!
1. DARTH VADER TRAPPER KEEPER!!!
As I am sure you can tell, I am just a little excited about this first geekynerdy find. I grew up with Trapper Keepers and when I thought about what I wanted to feature in this round-up, I kept thinking that it would be awesome to find an appropriately themed binder for you guys. However, I thought the Mead organizers had gone the way of the Dodo, so when I Googled “Trapper Keeper,” I wasn’t really sure what I would find. Needless to say, a brand-new Star Wars line didn’t even cross my mind, but it exists and it is glorious! While I love just about all of the pocket folders and notebooks in the collection, I freaked out when I saw this Darth Vader binder (C can serve as my witness) and knew that it had to be listed first.
2. Deadpool Backpack (Plus a few other honorable mentions)
I noticed someone wearing this Deadpool backpack a couple of weeks ago as I was walking home from work, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since! While it doesn’t have nearly the same kinds of bells and whistles as the ubiquitous North Face bags that everyone carries (myself included), there is something appealing about its simplicity. And, like many of Monday’s clothing options, the design is immediately obvious to those familiar with “the merc with a mouth,” but it isn’t as in your face as some of the other choices that are out there.
That said, we are a Captain America household and I would be remiss to not include some of those options as well. The Mysterious Mr. C is particularly fond of ThinkGeek’s shield backpack, while I like this “Winter Soldier” design from Target.
Lastly, since “Force Friday” officially begins at 12:01 am tomorrow, I thought I’d highlight this Chewbacca messenger bag for good measure! (It would also go really well with the above binder.)
3. Superman Lunch Box (with cape!)
While I absolutely love my dinosaur lunch box from SoYoung (it holds a ridiculous amount of stuff, even for a “small”), I am also extremely tickled by the fact that this Superman lunch box comes complete with a cape! Though it is hard to know exactly how many sandwiches and snacks the bag could hold, I fully acknowledge that it doesn’t really matter. I mean, it has a cape! Enough said. Oh, and if the Man of Steel isn’t your guy, there’s a Batman version too!
