THE FALL STYLE ISSUE: THE PENNY LOAFER


othing wrong with grabbing an updated take on a classic, but sometimes it behooves a fella to stick with the original.

Especially when that original is the Weejun, a penny-totin’ style that the fine folks at G.H. Bass started knocking out way back in 1936 — 100% high-quality leather hand-stitched into a classic moccasin-style silhouette that’s every bit as stylish today as it was when your father (and maybe even his father) rocked ‘em.

And while black and brown are both well and good, the truly discerning chap knows that oxblood (burgundy, for you PETA members out there) is decidedly more versatile — playing perfectly with ensembles that are typically geared toward one shoe color or the other.

Like Em said, just don’t forget the pennies.

Common misconception that loafers don’t pair well with socks — a nice marled pair adds some solid throwback flair to a casual prep-inspired ensemble.

A pair of pennies is also great to anchor a suiting kit, especially one that’s a little more casual — trade the button-down and tie for a natty polo, this time keep it sockless and you’re good to go.
