G.H. Bass & Co. | Footwear Fit For A Gent Gent on the street 24 February, 2016 Any Gent worth his (footwear) salt will be familiar with footwear heavyweights, G.H. Bass & Co. A brand with a long heritage, renowned for its iconic Weejun Penny Loafer, a shoe worn throughout the decades. “The history of G.H. Bass & Co. dates back to Maine in 1876 and George Henry Bass- a man on a simple mission to make the very best shoe. In 1936, G.H. Bass & Co. put a stylish spin on a Norwegian farm shoe designed for “loafing in the field,” and playfully dubbed them Weejuns – introducing the world’s first penny loafer. From strolling across college campuses to doing the moonwalk, Weejuns have been found on industrious feet ever since.” Weejuns aside, G.H. Bass has a strong line of footwear fit for a Gent, from moccasins to rugged boots for the outdoors. If you are a regular ready you’ll know that we love tassel loafers so unsurprisingly, the hands-down Street Gentry favourites are the Weejun Larkin Moc Tassel Loafers.A classic style with a finely cut sleek design allowing it to complement contemporary styles from casual to formal. Available in Wine, Black and Mid Brown, the Larkin loafers feature hand-stiched seams, genuine leather upper, linings and soles merged with a rubber grip heel. What’s great about these loafers are their versatility; using them as a base a variety of looks can be achieved, from country cool, to urban mod to working Gent. We wholeheartedly recommend a pair of Bass tassel loafers as a wardrobe essentials. To view the full range visit G.H. Bass and check out the Street Gentry Instagram account for more styling images.
