Just in Time for the Superbowl: Alexander Wang's Brady Football Clutch

Alexander Wang Brady Football Clutch Bag

As much as my husband, a football aficionado, might find this clutch amusing and whimsical, I can say with all certainty that I never will. Is it just me or are all of you tired of the word "whimsical"? It seems every retail website employs the word when they want to describe a bag that's fugly and ridiculous. Since they're trying to peddle the stuff, they can't be expected to fess up about how nonsensical the bag is. Thankfully, someone like me (who isn't beholden to anyone) can tell it like it is, and I'm here to say this is probably one of the most laughable bags I've ever had the misfortune of coming across.

I get it, though. The 'Brady' Football Clutch...Tom Brady...cute guy...women will love him...women will want to wear more masculine accessories, etc...  How very egalitarian of Mr. Wang, and how very droll of him as well. At this point, Wang is treading a very thin line between edgy innovation and insanity. To think how silly a grown woman would look carrying this clutch. I suppose a helmet, shoulder pads and a jock strap are next, right?

There are some details on the clutch I'm actually fond of like the quilted front and rear panels and whipstitch detailing along the zippered closure, but the impractical nature of the design (as well as the obvious football reference I've already discussed ad nauseam) are enough to make the Brady Football Clutch a loser in my book. Sorry, Mr. Wang, you're still not scoring a touchdown with any of your bags this spring. Time to re-visit your playbook for some new designs come fall.
