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.

For SS18, Original Penguin presents you with ‘Mix Tape’; an optimistic stylistic personalisation of eclectic references from a multitude of decades and sub genres to create a modern and unique aesthetic.Opposing patterns are thrust together on re-formed shapes and silhouettes. Wrong is right as we unselfconsciously embrace a chaotic medley of alluring anti-taste. 80’s sport references are juxtaposed with 90’s casual and modern beach lifestyle.
