Original Penguin

Original Penguin

With a charming backstory and a delightful collection of excellent quality basics under its belt, Original Penguin began in 1955, and continues to dress modern gentlemen to this day.

In 1955, businessman Abbot Pederson was in New York City, when a couple of wrong turnings took him from the bar in which he’d just sunk a couple of whiskies, to a taxidermist’s. Naturally, Pederson went in and bought a penguin to accompany him on his flight home. Christening the animal Pete, the bird was accidentally beheaded mid-flight, the mishap righted by an air stewardess who tied a necktie around its neck.

Pete’s likeness soon came to adorn every golf shirt created by the brand, which were enjoyed by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Arnold Palmer, and Clint Eastwood. Today, these classic gentlemen have helped to make Original Penguin into a classic American sportswear brand loved by men all over the world.

Still inspired by that classic silhouette and the gentlemen who wore them, every man should have at least one Original Penguin Polo Shirt in his wardrobe. Trust this sportswear brand with great T-shirts, cool trousers and more separates.
