Hope For Weejuns

“I want a funky multicultural world with everyone in no socks and Weejuns grooving along to Jimmy McGriff. It’s a new hippydom based on proper shoulder line, half an inch of oxford cloth at the cuff and real selvedge 501s.” — Toffeeman

    I think there can only be hope if they stop outsourcing their manafacture to foreign climbs and start using some decent leather that doesn’t look like plastic.

    They will revert back to made-in-usa originals using quality leather for a “premium” weejun that will then cost more.
    If they haven’t already.

  3. Bass is a brand ripe for creative takeover, complete with better quality, made in USA and if done right, command a higher price.

  4. Right now, the Weejun is the shoe most poorly produced by Bass. I bought a pair a year ago but never wear them because, as a previous commenter pointed out, they look like they were made from plastic.

  5. Ditto! Spray paint?!

    I don’t know which group is being more misunderstood, but one cannot wear weejuns and be a hippy simultaneously.

  7. Hope for socialist-endorsed weejuns? I completely agree with the fact that one cannot wear weejuns and be a hippy simultaneously. Well said sir.

  8. Oh, I get it, “foreign climbs.” At first I thought Bass was manufacturing on Mont Blanc or someplace.

  9. “socialist-endorsed”? Don’t make me laugh (at you).

  10. “socialist”? You mean like Bush and Reagan?

    The shiny shellac-like finish on Weejuns of recent years can be removed with a deglazer fluid purchased from any reputable cobbler; alcohol will work, but will require more effort. Just treat a small spot inside the shoe to see what color will be left when the burgundy coating’s removed; the leather’s original color might vary from pair to pair. And there are at least three Weejuns currently available without the coating: the Linwood in Brown Sombra Seahorse, and Logan in tan, and the Gilman (which is lined) in Brown Smooth.

  12. Why post this? Fact is, if you’re not a conservative and a traditionalist you’re NOT trad/Ivy/preppy. Starting to wonder if rubbing elbows with “success” leads to political correctness. It’s also known as selling out; the sad hope for more $uccess (kissing the ass of the liberal media and elite). Multiculturalism is the worst plague that ever infested the West and will surely lead to its utter destruction. All who fail to speak out against it and drawl the line in their personal and professional lives are traitors to the West. /losing respect

    You are as subtle as a mariachi band.
