Introduced in Minneapolis in 1955 by Munsingwear—the sportswear brand that started out as an underwear and military supply company—the original Penguin golf shirt became an icon of suburban leisure. Half a century later, young urbanites began trolling thrift stores for Pete the Penguin gold. In response, Chris Kolbe relaunched the brand, now under the Perry Ellis umbrella, in 2003. Today’s comprehensive lineup includes the signature piped placket shirt, along with swimwear, footwear, watches, eyewear, and ties.
