Original Penguin Golf Earl Polo


Some days you are just lucky. This photo was taken the first week of November and over my right shoulder is the Royal St George’s and in front of me the Shore nine at Prince’s.

Original Penguin has a great range of polo shirts, some golfy and some more casual wear. This Earl offering probably belongs to the latter category.

There are five different colors in the Earl polo range – this one (asphalt), caviar, warm coral, powder blue, and purple quartz – and they feature a 3 button placket and what they call a fashion pocket on the back. left chest.

What’s really remarkable about it is that it’s really cool, both in appearance and also in performance. If I had to play somewhere warm overseas or if we had a really hot day here in the UK then this would be a real favorite that you might not think of from the way it looks.

This is done thanks to its construction from a moisture wicking fabric and, to repeat the stitch, it will keep you cool and dry throughout the ride. The partly polyester / recycled polyester blend also means it’s stretchy so there’s absolutely no infringement on your swing.

The white tip details on the collar and cuffs give the shirt a real lift and it washes out really well and if anything, it looks even better after a few turns as the shirt softer a bit.

I’m 6 “4 and usually go with an XL and it’s a very regular fit and comfortable, whisper it softly but it could almost be described as pretty slim as it is snug but not tacky.

The story of the penguin

It is a beauty. In 1955, a man called Abbot Pederson had drunk too much while waiting for a flight and bought a stuffed penguin he named Pete. He accidentally dropped the penguin’s head, a helpful flight attendant wrapped a tie around the penguin’s neck and noticed that it would look good on a shirt. Pedersen then returned home and embroidered this “Pete the Penguin” character on his new shirts. A few years later, figures like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Clint Eastwood, and Arnold Palmer wore Munsingwear’s Original Penguin. These days, you know Cameron Smith, who almost won the Masters 2020, better in his smart clothes.
