Established in 1876 by George Henry Bass of Wilton Maine, G.H. Bass & Co. began with a man on a simple mission- To make the best possible shoe for the purpose in which it will be used. In 1936, G.H. Bass & Co. put a stylish spin on a Norwegian farm shoe designed for “loafing in the field,” and playfully named them Weejuns- introducing the world’s first penny loafer. Their Weejuns loafers are one of the most timeless shoes that exist and in recent seasons they have become the new cult footwear for streetwear lovers.
