Blog/Footwear News/An Introduction to G.H. Bass Weejuns
Without a doubt, one of the most exciting arrivals of the Cloggs AW15 range is American formal footwear giants, G.H. Bass. G.H. Bass ‘Weejuns’ are the original penny loafers - a style of footwear which stays on trend year after year.
Bass began making shoes in 1876, after being founded by George Henry Bass. A wealth of history and some phenomenal heritage later, the brand developed the ‘Weejun’ in 1936 and the penny loafer was born. Not too far from a century later, G.H. Bass Weejuns remain the most famous penny loafers in the world, and we couldn’t be more excited to have them here at Cloggs.
Introducing our key players...
The Weejun Larson Moc Penny is a beautiful penny loafer constructed of a smooth and shiny leather upper with a low block heel. Embodying a classic moccasin style stitch on the toe box for an authentic loafer effect, it’s undeniable that G.H. Bass Weejuns are impeccably made. The craftsmanship is so superior, in fact, that every weejun loafer is hand sewn to ensure the quality that is universally synonymous with the brand. The perfect accompaniment to some tailored trousers or fitted jeans, the class and sophistication of these Moc Penny loafers provides the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.

The Moc Tassle loafer is a tasselled penny loafer, and one of G.H. Bass’s most iconic stlyes of weejun. A traditional moccasin-style loafer, the Moc Tassle features a delicate tassle on each shoe’s upper, providing a unique and sophisticated finish to the shoe. Every Moc Tassle is hand-sewn for impeccable quality, and the beautiful smooth and shiny leather is complimented perfectly by the slight heel for added comfort and style. Working perfectly with jeans or tailored trousers, the moc tassle is the epitome of class and will comfortably take you from day to night - in style too.
