Just as we’ve been eyeing penny loafers as they gain momentum with the cool-prep inspired girls around town from Alexa Chung to NYU grads as the classic shoes makes sense for these hi/lo sartorial times we live in, comes a smart new collaboration from two of America’s foremost preppy outfitters.
Leave it to Tommy Hilfiger, the reigning king of collegiate cool, to update the American sweetheart’s stand-by, the classic G.H Bass “Weejun” penny loafer, with a canny dose of unexpected quirkiness in an array of offbeat colors and fabrications.
Offering a full range of both men’s & women’s styles fabricated in pony skin, suede and polished leather in a myriad of colors from classic prep( think burgundy, hunter green & navy) to pop colors( burnt red for instance) to traditional wool plaid, there’s something for everyone to add a subtle however surprising Tommy Hilfiger twist to their wardrobes this season.
The limited edition loafers will be sold at select Tommy Hilfiger stores and online at Tommy.com mid-October. -Naveed Hussain
