In 1955, Minneapolis-based Munsingwear introduced the first iconic golf shirt to America. As the story goes, one of Munsingwear’s salesmen spotted a stuffed penguin in the window of a New York taxidermist and bought it. 

Before long, the penguin became the official mascot of the brand making its first appearance on the 55 golf shirt. In the 50’s and 60’s Original Penguin was worn by everybody from sporting hero’s to celebrities such as: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Arnold Palmer, Clint Eastwood, and Richard Nixon, to name a few. Today Original Penguin has evolved into a complete lifestyle brand.

A full collection of Menswear, Fragrance and Accessories are available in the Covent Garden store.

The direction for Spring 2019 is more of a manifesto than a description of a seasonal theme; it’s a clear guide to an aesthetic shift. We must honour the iconic heritage of the brand with uncomplicated design and simple timeless styling. Look to the past to create a curated eclectic offering that tells a story that only we can tell. Pattern is simple, clean and carefully curated to enhance the story. Fabrics are subtlety elevated with imperfected novelty. Classic styling is reinvented and reimagined to look modern and fresh. The palette is an explosive mix of atomic bright’s and perfect pastels. Surf The Web and Dark Denim connect the deliveries through commercial blue hues. While pop colours are injected into the line through Flame Scarlett, Primrose Yellow, Lipstick Red and Cadmium Orange.
