From backpacks and side bags to neck pouches and chest rigs, in 2021, 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 has 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.

For those seeking a classic style, highlights below include an all-over logo clutch by MCM as well as low-key all-black options from Prada, Bottega Veneta, and more.

Meanwhile, those looking for a more vibrant design to set you apart from the fashion week crowd will find what they seek in editions from COMME des GARÇONS and UNDERCOVER.

Keep scrolling to see all the best clutches for men.
