Established in 1876 by George Henry Bass of Wilton, Maine, G.H. Bass & Co. began with a man on a simple mission to make the best possible shoe for the purpose in which it will be used. A hard-won reputation for quality, comfort and durability is exactly what has kept Bass in business for almost a century and a half.
The Penny loafer was introduced in 1936 and has since then
been worn for generations, shaping them into an iconic symbol of discovery, perseverance and self-expression. GH Bass has perfected the technique over decades of development and innovation, adapting to meet modern challenges, proving that A True Original Is Always In Demand.
