Ask dapperQ: Masculine Purses?

A reader asks:

 

Thanks for everything you do Dapper! I’m a lady starting to fall more on the dapper side. I don’t want to carry a purse or clutch, but my casual messenger bag, which I love, just doesn’t cut it in some situations and my wallet and phone and keys are too much for my pockets. When I’m going somewhere nicer, what do I do? Thanks!

I’m not dismissing the fact that you said that you don’t want to carry a clutch. I totally hear you! But, androgynous and masculine clutches (aka document holders or laptop cases) are all the rage right now. These “clutches” are more gender-neutral than what most people think of when they hear the word clutch.

You can find similar clutches, laptop cases, and document holders everywhere from Etsy, Farfetch, and American Apparel. Today’s trendy clutch comes in a wide range of colors, patterns, and materials. But, if these clutches didn’t change your mind, try a satchel:

ASOS, Etsy, and Ted Baker are great places to start your search for satchels. They can be a bit pricey, so if you want the greatest bang for your buck, invest in a good leather duffel bag:

Duffel bags can be dressed up or dressed down and used for business or play (your jet-setter carry on bag!). You can find similar bags at Fossil, Ted Baker, Etsy, Wayfair, and ASOS.
