I agree. Anything that fits into a clutch probably fits into a small wallet or better yet, a normal sized bag. Why go through the hassle of carrying something without handles?

^ well, i have a clutch that i love (it has a wrist strap)...and it's perfect. holds everything i need and it's not as cumbersome as carrying around a huge travel-sized bag, on times when i really don't need a huge bag.

Well, it's a sports bag Urban, so if you're a man in an uber conservative area i'm sure the people will love you all the more You just can't carry it like a Birkin

Does anyone know where I can get a nice clutch-esque bag pour homme? I use my wallet (well, purse) as a clutch most of the time, mainly because it makes my jean pockets square and hence ridiculous. I want something nice.

Thanks again everyone

Yeah...the shape is just a very classic basic tote that you could find anywhere but the artistry and craftmanship are so spectacular...it's entirely handwoven around a mold by 2 people for 2 days with over 70 "fettucini" strips both inside and out, making this bag a total of 4 layers...also, the finish on my bag is handpainted, which makes it extra special and unique...imo, the price is totally justifiable with the amount of work that went into the bag...I love it so much I could use it as a pillow

I think sometime men need clutches to carry wallet (no more square butt), cell phones, car's key, series of essential keys, passport, IDs, perfume, and ofcourse 9mm all together. Asian and Russian men used to carry their things on a small purse for decades. Thus, revamp this old fashion heritage is a good idea hahaha. umm actualy.. am seein that Fendi's gigantic clutch as replacement for my LV cherry pochete and lil batik pouch.

Foxie-Pooh I always love to hear the craftsmanship that goes into these fantastic items that seriously sets them aside from any other. Two days to make one? Stunning. So jealous about that bag

Twenty grand? Oh wait, are you talking in dollars?
If you are, still ten thousand pounds is a lot for a clutch-esque bag..

I'm sorry but I have to disagree with some here on the clutch for men. It is ridiculous. I think men should draw the line at a travel bag. Once you start venturing off into clutches you might as well be a woman. That's just my opinion.

learn to write my name bimbo.

and my Hermès store didn't even take that order. appearantly each Hermès store only has a certain contigency of croc items per year that they can order from Paris and the Viennese store tends to just order croc Kellys or Birkins.
