Gay Friendly Business Spotlight: Original Penguin
The Original Penguin Clothing Company has been representing Americana since 1955 and is worn all over the world.
Celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Arnold Palmer and Clint Eastwood all wore the iconic, Munsingwear golf shirt, sporting the infamous “Pete the Penguin”.
The shirt catapulted back into fashion starting in 2000, when young trendsetters started scouring yard sales and demanding their favorite vintage stores restock the cult classics.
In 2003, this overwhelming new audience led to the rebirth of an Original Penguin by Munsingwear, and an alliance with an international fashion house.
Penguin’s archive of mid-century classics was reworked to reflect today’s lifestyle without compromising the heritage or craftsmanship that had made Penguin’s name.
Today, with Original Penguin stores dotting the globe and sold at exclusive luxury retailers, Pete is back — bigger and better than ever, presiding over a full lifestyle brand that now includes suits, watches, bags, belts, hats, shoes, and women’s and kids’ collections.
See for yourself. Original Penguin men’s clothing continues to exude a blend of confidence and relaxation. Penguin golf shirts and men’s polo shirts are just as iconic as they were when Pederson designed the first one. They easily pair with Original Penguin pants and jeans to create a look worthy of the great ones.
Original Penguin continues to develop landmark clothing for women and kids, too. Our collection of Original Penguin women’s clothing is chic, cozy, sassy and nonchalant all at once. Peruse the tops, skirts, jackets and dresses that define an Original Penguin gal. And don’t forget the kids. Keep your boys looking hip and clean in designer children’s clothing.
But Original Penguin is more than just clothes today. They have a complete accessories shop to help you round out your look. Pete is now the proud purveyor of bags, hats, wallets, shoes, belts, ties and watches.
