It is nearing a crime to count the many, many options women have for handbags. Men can count hardly as many.
Tote bags, hobo bags, baguettes, shoppers, wristlets, clutches, buckets: you name it. We don’t want to impose gender stereotypes in fashion too hard, but a woman has so many choices.
Nevertheless, there is one bag in world of men’s bags that is really starting to move mountains this decade. Meet the pouch.
The pouch: a cross between a wallet and a clutch, the pouch manages to fit all your essentials into one bag, while still maintaining an air of sophistication and style. The pouch has been spotted in recent years in the warm embrace of men attending fashion week, of entrepreneurs between stops on the BTS, and of men in suits en route the city’s hottest events.
Moreover, the pouch is loved for its versatility. You could wear it to a business meeting (many could fit an iPad), or you could wear it to a dinner date. You could carry it to parties. And you could even get away with it in a canvas version by the beach.
Here, we’ve put together some of the best pouches for men of the minute. Whether you prefer bright colours or classic design, one thing is for sure: every man needs a pouch.
