So if you’re the kind of die-hard insouciant prep who wears his everyday white (or pink) oxford buttondown with black tie, and who can’t bear to be shod in anything but penny loafers, Bass might have just the shoe for you. If you want something special to wear with your tux but cringe at the idea of velvet slippers, then maybe your cringe will turn to cry — of joy, I mean — at this Weejun/formal hybrid complete with velvet and patent leather.
Or maybe you’ll just cringe.
There are even tartan Weejuns, though I can’t seem to find them on the Bass site:
At only $110, the velvet-patent shoes are cheaper than most New Year Eve events, and are really perfectly suited for that special night, which is invariably marked by greaet fun or deep regret. — CHRISTIAN CHENSVOLD
