Fred Perry and G.H. Bass & Co. rework two adaptations of their iconic leather Weejuns

Fred Perry founded his brand in the 1950s and the Laurel Wreath has been adopted by generations of subcultures ever since. What started out as functional, durable sportswear, soon became part of the British subcultural uniform.

G.H. Bass & Co’s iconic Weejuns have been a smart staple and key part of some of the most influential moments in fashion history. With a mutual connection to subculture and a passion for practicality and quality, both brands have partnered up on a penny loafer in oxblood and navy colors, and a tassel loafer in black and bottle green colors.

A collaborative effort, the iconic Weejuns are given a tough, heavy-duty makeover. Designed with a thick, rigid out sole, the leather in-sock is finished with a tartan trim taken from the brand’s Harrington jacket.

Retailing at £145, all pairs will be available to purchase on FredPerry.com and ghbass-eu.com from April 20th 2020.
