I've been carrying around a zippered Y-3 wallet under my arm for a week, and suddenly, life is easier. I grab everything I need, all at once on my way out the door, which is too much to fit into a pocket-sized wallet. So I'm particularly delighted with the newest unexpected twist from this season's menswear runways - the introduction of clutches to men's wardrobes. If you think about it, it's really not far-fetched. Men carry briefcases and portfolios, which are just as hard to carry as a clutch. So why not switch out an attaché case for a sleek Marni envelope? Plus, these days, we're carrying cell phones, wallets, Blackberries, keys and a bajillion other things. A giant messenger bag isn't always a convenient, or appropriate, accessory for a night out. Dries Van Noten's zippered patent leather option is pretty basic without adding too many buckles or other distractions we're sure most guys wouldn't approve of. We love the blood red Ferragamo, left - it's big but not annoying. We bet Marc will be next in line with some playful clutches, since he's obviously a fan of them himself. The only problem? Keeping your girlfriend's hands off them. --KYLE HAYES
