It’s finally happened. On this crisp, February morning in West London, we’ve ventured outside — for the first time in 2019 — without our coats on.
Granted, it was only to dash across the road for an all-too-necessary Monday morning coffee, and there was a slight chill, but still we did it — and we will do it again.
The upshot is that Spring is on the frosty horizon. And, although you may find it hard to believe, we’ll soon be leaving work while it’s still light outside. Can you imagine such a thing? Either way, it’s high time you started thinking about your warmer weather wardrobe.
And nothing will put more of a spring in your step than a loafer. This versatile, low-slung staple of any gentleman’s wardrobe can see you from office to party to sun-soaked Riviera – with or without socks, should you be so inclined.
And nobody does it better than G.H. Bass & Co., the American heritage brand famed with introducing the world’s first penny loafer.
In 1936, they put a stylish spin on a Norwegian farm shoe designed for “loafing in the fields”. Playfully dubbed “Weejuns” for their Scandi origins, these loafers have since adorned the feet of icons including Paul Newman and Steve McQueen.
So, to help you (literally) follow in the footsteps of such Hollywood greats, we’ve teamed up with G.H. Bass to give away £500 to spend in-store or online.
