Original Penguin

In 1955, Minneapolis-based Munsingwear—an underwear and military supply company—ironically became the touchstone of suburban sportswear with the introduction of the first iconic golf shirt to America - an ORIGINAL PENGUIN. The now-famous ORIGINAL PENGUIN logo has an unusual story behind it. One of Munsingwear's salesmen spotted a flock of penguins in the window of a New York taxidermist and, on what seems like a lark, bought one of the stuffed birds and brought it back to the office. Before long, "Pete" the penguin became the official mascot and logo of golf shirts. The first golf shirt—the 1955—was an instant classic, and was first to feature an "action guest" or a ribbed slice of fabric on the underarm to avoid rips that could result from the most enthusiastic sort of golf swing. Currently, Original Penguin has expanded into the production of classic men's board shorts and other apparel.
