Original Penguin

Launched in 1955 by Minneapolis-based clothing manufacturer Munsingwear, Penguin Original is the perfect representation of preppy, slick 50’s sports style.

Their iconic golf shirt (which they claim was the original of its kind) became a symbol of suburban leisure until well into the 1980s. In 1996 the brand was bought by Perry Ellis International, and a new sportswear collection was released in Spring 2003, rejuvenating the brand in the eyes of the public.

The Penguin style is retro, well-groomed and classic, and making it the perfect brand for those who seek an independent, intellectual and active lifestyle. It has a strong celebrity and fashion pack following, and the likes of Oasis, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt have been seen in the clothes.
