It's a funny thing about this clutch. It's black leather with perforations and these four die-cut holes along the top. It closes with strong sewn-in magnets (they are in the structure of the bag, pretty invisible at first inspection).
This little black clutch has garnered so many compliments from women and men alike, that my friends used to joke that it was a "man magnet". The funny thing is -- turns out it's not a joke. When I take this out, random men compliment my bag. Straight men. In wine bars. Or at a restaurant for lunch. They cannot resist it. It started as a joke, but no more. It's bona fide.
