The Best: Bass Weejuns' Perfect 75th Anniversary Penny Loafer Collection
Loafers the footwear beloved by grandpas and fixie-bike-riding hipsters alike have experienced a bit of a renaissance on the feet of stylishly dressed men in recent years. No longer the sole purview of the Young Republican National Federation and Michael Jackson (may he rest in peace), the simple, elegant shoe has returned to the feet of edgy gentlemen, becoming dare we say it cool. Perfect timing, then, for G.H. Bass & Co. to release the 75th Anniversary Collection of its Bass Weejun shoe, the model that pretty much defined the word loafer. Capitalizing on their current popularity, Bass has expanded the looks available in the hand-sewed Weejun line with a palette of colors new to the classic penny-slit model and the tasseled variation. Between us guys here, as wide as the selection is, we're a little miffed that only women have access to this distracting shiny gold model. Please don't tell anyone.
G.H. Bass & Co. Weejuns, starting at $119 at select retailers and www.bassshoes.harborghb.com beginning in August.
