From backpacks and side bags to neck pouches and chest rigs, in 2019, men’s bag options know no bounds. Now, we spotlight one of the decidedly smarter bag trends for men. Predominantly the reserve of women in previous years, the clutch bag seems to have emerged as the bag of choice for the most fashion-forward of guys.

Not only is the clutch bag a timeless accessory that’ll refine any ’fit, but it also comes with far greater functionality than those more buzzy bag trends such as the impossibly tiny neck pouch. What’s more, you don’t have to part with the designer price tag you might have thought of this kind of bag, with brands such as A.P.C. and Acne Studios releasing steezy iterations to rival the high-end grails of labels like Prada and Loewe.

For those seeking a classic style, highlights below include an all-over logo clutch by MCM that’s big enough to fit a 13″ laptop, as well as low-key all-black options from Acne Studios and A.P.C.

Meanwhile, those looking for a more vibrant design to set you apart from the fashion week crowd will see what they seek in an asymmetrical mirror leather clutch by A-COLD-WALL*, or the luxe, multi-patterned Grid T pouch by Loewe.
