Long-running American shoemakers G.H.Bass & Co. make some of our favourite men’s shoes and loafers, and just one look at their manufacturing methods and it is clear to see why.
Born in Maine in 1876, G.H. Bass & Co. is the brainchild of George Henry Bass – a man who was on a simple mission to ‘make the very best shoe.’ By mixing the best leather with the best craftsmen, he paved a path of progress with patience, and Bass soon made tracks all over the world with his comfortable, high-quality shoes.
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 – the world’s first penny loafer. Impressively, G.H. Bass & Co. still bench craft and hand stitch all of its shoes like they did back then with the first Penny Loafer, and they continue to combine classic construction with contemporary creativity to find new ways to marry the timeless with the modern day. That naturally means that the brand’s evolving selection of premium men’s shoes are designed to be comfortable and wearable for a range of different sized feet. Sometimes the old ways are the best, after all.
G.H.Bass & Co. take great care in creating the perfect shoe; so you should take equally good care when it comes to finding the most comfortable pair for you, too. The most important piece of information that you need to know is G.H.Bass & Co shoes fit true to size. This includes all of the brand’s most popular styles from the G.H.Bass & Co. Loafers, Chelsea Boots and Derbies.
Buying a pair of G.H.Bass & Co. shoes at OPUMO is made even easier, as the sizing conversions are listed beneath each G.H.Bass & Co. shoe under the ‘Size Guide’ drop down menu.
One last thing, as with many modern footwear labels, not all of G.H.Bass & Co. shoes are available in half sizes, so if you usually wear a half size opt for a half-size down. For example, if you usually wear a UK 9.5, go down half a size, and buy a UK 9.
G.H.Bass & Co shoes fit true to size.
If the G.H.Bass & Co. shoe you are looking to buy is not available in a half size, buy a pair half a size smaller.
