These Ain't Your Average Loafers: Check Out Bass' Fall Collection

It's loafer season, guys! And for a classic, no-frills option, Bass is normally our go-to...but who knew it could make unconventional pairs like these? Bass shoes are known for their simple, elegant styles, but for fall '12, the brand is stepping up its style games with punchy Dalmatian and leopard prints, studs, and floral tapestry.
Of course, there are also plenty of tried-and-true basic styles still available to appease to our simple-is-beautiful side, as well. We can’t help but thinking how well these pieces (especially the more utilitarian ones, like the Washington and the Primrose) would go with, say, those new Madewell jeans we're eyeing, or how the Harlan boot may become our next most-worn pair of shoes (leopard is a neutral, right?)
Bass almost makes the prospect of dropping temps something to look forward to. Almost. Jump ahead for all the crave-worthy styles if you don't believe us.
