Fresh Polos - Original Penguin - Nike Golf

The Original Penguin golf shirt debuted in 1955 in a Munsingwear undergarment factory in Minneapolis. It was quickly adopted by the rich and famous, including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Arnold Palmer, Clint Eastwood and Richard Nixon. Its innovative styling was an "action gusset", a ribbed fabric slice on the underarm for avoiding tears during a golfer's swing. This polo shirt was a standard in leisure wear through the 1980s.

In 2000, young trendsetters scoured yard sales for the shirt, beginning its rebirth as a cult classic. Penguin's mid-century styles were redesigned for a modern lifestyle without compromising its heritage and craftsmanship. The Penguin polo shirt shirt is now remembered as "The 55", a symbol of relaxed sophistication and a cornerstone of the leisure wear movement.
