In recent years we have seen the growth of the tendency of backpacks and bags, that have the capacity to contain large quantities of objects. Great if you have to go to the gym after work or you want to make a trip out of town, but not practical if you have to carry ordinary objects as keys, smartphone and wallet.
For this reason a new and smaller model of bag become famous this year: the men clutch, a trend in the field of 2016 accessories.

The men clutch has moved widespread criticism, especially by women. Probably because it was always considered feminine. Yet, before the clutch, man has always used a similar accessory for work: the document holder. With that in mind, I think it’s easier to understand why the clutch has become so important even within the male wardrobe.
It’s undeniable the evolution of the clutches in models for the masculine look: for example in this post the DressLily men clutch mixes flags with ethnic patterns and obscure sacred representations. An aggressive design that certainly will not make an outfit too feminine.
So if you are looking for a bag less bulky than a messenger bag and more refined than a backpack, men clutch adds an interesting dynamic to any outfit, maintaining a sense of masculinity.
