It's not a new concept but the "Man Clutch" has definitely been making its way back into the sartorial rounds. With technology getting smaller and smaller, eg. ipads, tablets, blackberrys, iphones, etc... men are inclined to carry less and in smaller bags. In fact, when I was on vacation last week, I spend a better part of that week scouring all the boutiques to find a suitable one for me. Even my go-to MAN BAG stores (Bottega Veneta, Dior Homme, Hermes, YSL) did not have what I needed. Also, the search for the coveted Celine clutch ended with a "No, Celine is not carried in the states anymore. Blame NY!" (SHOCK + HORROR!) I ended up at Balenciaga where the only comparable version is their laptop bag. What's a boy to do?! Perhaps I may have to just make one!
What are your thoughts on the subject? Would you rock a clutch? Are you man enough to carry a man clutch?!
