The Barney in Taupe
The Brockton in Aluminum Gray
I’m in the market for a pair of bucks. And before you ask: Yes. I am aware that I’m late to the game on this one. Which is why I’m in the market for a pair of bucks that have just a little something different about them. Gotta set yourself off somehow…
Bass has two very solid options that are perfectly suited to my current needs: The Barney in Taupe and the Brockton in Aluminum Gray. Unfortunately, they don’t hit the market for a little while. But for these, I may be able to wait.
First off, the Barney. It’s pretty much your traditional taupe buck, but done up in a monk strap as opposed to the classic lace up. A solid example of a “twist on a classic” piece. It’s available now for pre-order from the Bass site, and it should hit stores around mid-August. Mark your calendars!

The Brockton isn’t a new model like the Barney, but the Aluminum Gray color is a new option. Considering the fact that I’ve never really been able to figure out how to effectively work white bucks into my wardrobe, it’s a welcome offering. The outsole is white, with a red brick welt. Altogether, a toned down play on the classic white/red brick scheme. So a subtler buck, but one that retains the styling cues of the old school versions.
Like the Barney, this guy has yet to hit shelves. Look for it in early July, and pre-order now if you’ve just gotta have ’em.
