About Original Penguin

In 1955, Minneapolis based Munsingwear introduced the first iconic golf shirt to America.  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.
