Few things on this earth are more iconic than the Louis Vuitton bag. For a certain type of person, owning a suitcase, messenger bag, or briefcase with that splash of interlocking LV's printed across it is like achieving fashion nirvana.

Of course, for some guys the brown-and-gold of the pattern feels just a touch too precious—possibly because so many of LV bags you see are women's purses. Thankfully Vuitton has solved this problem with the new Monogram Eclipse collection.

Dropping today, the capsule includes a full range of leather goods and travel items specifically aimed at guys. Along with standbys like a briefcase and a classic messenger, Monogram Eclipse introduces four new bag shapes: the Backpack Explorer (a hybrid satchel-slash-backpack), the upsized Messenger Voyager, and two travel bags—the Keepall Voyager and the Travel Bag Explorer.

Each piece is designed using a black-and-grey variation of the classic LV Monogram canvas, which manages to tone down the look while simultaneously adding a little extra edge. Also on the docket for the collection are derby shoes, military-inspired ankle boots, sneakers that are hand-covered in Monogram canvas, and smaller items like a wallet and an iPhone case.

If you're one of those guys that goes in for Vuitton but brown and gold aren't your thing, this might just be the collection you've been waiting for.
