Shopping at Original Penguin
Original Penguin was founded all the way back in 1955 by a Munsingwear salesman named Abbot Pederson who bought a stuffed penguin, knocked its head off, and then wrapped his tie around its head, later embroidering the penguin on the Munsingwear golf shirt. Thus a brand was born. Original Penguin has headquarters in New York City, and is an all-American brand that focuses on clothing, eyewear, and footwear. There are stores all throughout North America, South America, and Europe, and the company has been represented by names such as Brad Pitt, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Adam Brody. Their clothing is casual and sophisticated and is made up of two major lines. The first is the Original Label and includes apparel and accessories for men, women, and children. The second line is called the Black Label and consists of high end mens golf clothing. Original Penguin is sold in major retail stores like Barneys and Neiman Marcus as well as on their own website. Online purchases can be paid for with credit card, debit card, or paypal and offers free shipping on orders over $75. Buying online also allows customers to build up “Perk Points” which they can then spend online or in store.
