Inspired by a stuffed Penguin called Pete and whisky or two, the Original Penguin brand was born over 60 years ago in 1955. With roots in golfing wear, the Penguin logo is now a fashion icon all over the world and has been sported by some of Americana's most iconic and talked-about celebrities: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Clint Eastwood, Arnold Palmer and even President Richard Nixon.
With some time to kill in New York before a flight back to hometown Minneapolis, the ambitious salesman Abbot Pederson found himself staring at a display of penguins in the shop window of a taxidermist's shop after a few whiskies in a local bar. His inner-self somehow inspired him to purchase one of the stuff penguins, later to be called Pete The Penguin, and was later dressed by his tie on the flight home by a seductive air hostess.
