G. H. Bass & Co. x Universal Works

For the SS18 season Universal Works has teamed up with G. H. Bass & Co. putting a summer spin on two of its most iconic silhouettes. There is no denying that the Bass Weejun Penny loafer is a menswear icon but its everyday-wear-ability is limited. This collaboration brings G. H. Bass & Co. into brand-new territory and combining with a brand like Universal Works with parallel core values fits just perfectly.

Two new styles enter the fray, the Wedge Larson and Wedge Tie. Both shoes are a contemporary take on G. H. Bass & Co.’s timeless blueprint, opening up its offering to a fresh audience. This is the first time the American brand has used a Vibram outsole, a rugged alternative to its signature leather soles. Suede uppers feature across both styles with a gold cross-stitch detail across the heel, a salute to G. H. Bass & Co.’s handmade shoemaking skills. The Wedge Larson has a classic slip-on fit with the Wedge Tie featuring a tie-up construction with tasselled laces that’s inspired by moccasin construction.
