Best Foot Forward: G.H.Bass & Co for Maharishi

Alex Wilson gives us the lowdown on the latest loafer collaboration between G.H.Bass & Co and Maharishi

Words by Alex Wilson

Back by my own demand, I’m here again on the subject of penny loafers. The focus of my adoration? British-born streetwear brand, Maharishi, having found a suitable partner in everybody’s favorite slip-on, G.H.Bass & Co’s famous Weejuns Penny Loafer.

This joint effort happens to be just how I like my collabs: subtle and effortless. G.H.Bass has utilised the iconic Maharishi Bonsai camo print and applied it to their Weejun Larson using an embossing technique.

This distinct aesthetic is featured across the upper, while the shoes bear all the hallmarks of the classic Weejun. Crafted from polished leather, the loafer is hand-stitched using a tubular moccasin construction and boasts a clean penny cut-out on the bridge. The finished article is, unsurprisingly, blinding.

The G.H.Bass x Maharishi Penny Loafer is available from Friday 6th of August from G.H. Bass and Maharishi.
