Introducing Bass Weejuns

It’s hard to imagine a world without loafers; the shoe that has had a place in all styles and eras of the 20th century – from American Ivy League-ers to 1960s Mods and Michael Jackson. Traditionally a men’s shoe, loafers are now worn by both men and women for style and comfort, but Bass Weejuns is where it all began.

In 1876, George Henry Bass founded G.H. Bass & Co., a Maine-based footwear company. In 1936, he introduced the Bass Weejuns, the world’s first penny loafers that were inspired by a Norwegian farm shoe designed for ‘loafing in the field’. Originally worn as a casual summer shoe, Bass Weejuns loafers are now the smart shoe of choice for people all around the world. Accept no imitations.

A fan of all things minimalist, I prefer to invest in a few simple pieces each season and am a big believer that you can never own too many pairs of black flats. I’m constantly on the search for the coolest new brands, so you’re most likely to find me surrounded by magazines when I’m not blogging. That, or binge watching Netflix.
