Fashion Cents: A must-have item for the man who has everything

There’s a new must-have item for men that is quickly selling out everywhere.

The plain brown paper bag is no longer just a sack to carry your man’s lunch. The paper bag has been given a stylish facelift courtesy of designer Jil Sander Vasari. The Vasari “clutch” for men is made from coated brown paper, stitched seams and metal vents stamped with the Vasari logo to give the brown paper bag a trendy new look.

The paper bag clutch is already sold out at The Jil Sander store in SoHo, New York. It isn’t available online either (I checked eBay.com). Sure, you could save yourself $290 by making your own brown paper bag clutch, but it won’t be a designer brown paper bag.

According to the NY Daily News, the black leather version retails for $630. W Magazine gushed that it’s “perfectly in sync with the fashion house’s minimalist roots. Forget recycling — this bag is a keeper.”

      Rather than eluding to the ghey-ness of the bag, how about the continuing gulable-ness in today’s society that continues to cause people to go broke for things they do not need. That’s both ghey and straight. Look at how we jump for smart phones, Ipad, and the like. If you make it, they will by it. I don’t understand why people continue to be amazed at things like this. The designers are the ones who know we will buy it. It’s where we have come as a society.

      Yes yes a more manageable bicycle drive by can be done on this one.

    • Ms. Everything

      But….. who in the hell would pay over 1.00 for a paper bag? And the leather one looks dumb. And it’s essentially a clutch but it’s ugly and I would never spend more than $100 (and only if it was real cute and essential to a certain outfit) on a clutch because you sit them down and lose them too easily. Again, people will spend money on anything cause they’re dumb and dumb people bother my senses

      By special request we’re gonna get Sensual Thursday started off with a lil Gerald Levert (hey Milky)
      :whistle:
      I recalled when we first met, a long
      Time ago. How could I forget the way
      I felt, when I first laid eyes on
      You. I remember saying to my friends,
      There is my future wife; and then, I
      Took the steps to meet someone who
      Would change my life.

      It had to be my destiny

      Cause I was made to love ya
      My hands to touch ya
      My arms to hold ya
      My legs to stand
      My time to spend
      With you forever
      I was made, made to love ya

      My lips to kiss ya
      My eyes to see you
      My legs to stand
      My time to spend
      With you forever and ever
      I was made (I was made)
      Made to love ya (Made to love ya)
