Long-running American shoemakers G.H.Bass & Co. make some of our favourite men’s shoes and loafers. Just one look at their meticulous manufacturing methods and it is clear to see how the brand has become so beloved by so many over the years.
Established 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 their 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.
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. Check out our ultimate guide to G.H. Bass & Co. sizing below to find your perfect fit.
