Original Penguin and Pete the Penguin have left their mark on a league of legends. For over 60 years, our namesake bird has been adorned and adored by the masters of leisure and sport to define itself as an American classic. Today, the Penguin icon still stands as a signal for those who know how to be an original.
“I am thrilled to partner with an iconic brand like Original Penguin. For me to be able to wear a brand that was made famous by golf and cultural legends is an honor,” stated Lee. “With Original Penguin’s formula of modern fit, fashionable designs, performance materials and attention to detail, there’s no doubt I’ll be looking my best both on and off the course.”
