Such Cool Clothing at Original Penguin! – This store is great! The mens shirts fit really well and every time I go to an Original Penguin I always find something for me or my man!
Not your Republican grandfather's favorite golf shirt anymore, but a low key hipster fashion destination. – In Short
In 1996, Perry Ellis acquired Minneapolis-based Munsingwear, makers of the deliriously untrendy, functional Penguin golf shirt, worn by Bing Crosby and Tricky Dick Nixon. In 2003, the brand was reinterpreted as a casually cool retro-styled youth line, with outlets in NY, Miami, Dallas and Newport Beach. The Melrose branch is fitted out with Danish modern fixtures, surf history books and a hundred hipsters' closets worth of corduroy jackets, slim-line stripy trousers and flouncy patterned dresses.
