G.H. Bass & Co, the creator of the original penny loafer, has teamed up with British label Hunter Gather to produce a limited edition design for the summer.
Inspired by the American brand’s original ‘Weejun’ model, worn and loved by the likes of Michael Jackson, the collaborative design sees Hunter Gather’s signature branded plectrum applied to the front of the iconic silhouette.
Original Bass Weejuns
Crafted from premium black leather, the Larson Weejun is finished with a solid, slightly heeled sole and neat stitching detail for a classic penny loafer that still looks as slick today as it did when it was first created back in 1936.
This isn’t the first footwear collaboration for London-based label Hunter Gather, having teamed up with British heritage label Grenson in the two and a half years since its inception.
Founded by fashion editor and stylist David Bradshaw in December 2012, the brand continues to offer practical and masculine pieces for the contemporary gent.
The G.H. Bass x Hunter Gather Larson Weejun loafer is available now exclusively at Hunter Gather’s Redchurch Street, Shoreditch store, priced at £125 a pair.
