How could we have missed the boat on this one? We heralded the age of the ‘medge’ aka the male wedge and we all witnessed the explosion of guyliner, manscara and what have you but somehow the ‘mlutch’ evaded us.

‘s been gadding about town sporting the BOT (Bang On Trend) accessory but everybody knows that the trend started with Kel Knight of Kath and Kim fame and his manpurse, a vision in grey leather. I’ve picked out a few women’s clutches that you could happily pass off as a mlutch, jump through to find out more.

Faith’s Cynthio (£40) is a reasonable price, especially when you consider it’s made from real leather. An unobtrusive and stylish bag for everyday wear.
The long locked purse by Mulberry (£190) from my-wardrobe is perhaps a little senior for everyday use, but teamed with a camel coat and sharp suit it’s definitely Sartorialist-worthy.
Much more casual is Philip Lim’s 3.1 clutch, reduced to £145 at Browns. The mustard tones and rivet detailing make it a bag worth toting everyday.
