Original Penguin Earl Polo Shirts
Original Penguin - 1955
Original Penguin was founded in the USA way back in 1955 and one of their earliest styles, the Original Penguin Earl Polo, has been around for just as long.
The shirt's continued popularity is no surprise given its timeless style appeal and the endless colour combinations which could be adopted.
The contrast pipe detailing around the placket & collar is so incredibly easy on the eye - while the simple chest pocket with the embroidered Pete logo brings that little touch of sophistication without over-complicating the look.
The Earl Polo - for Golf
Fast forward to the 21st Century and you can now find an array of golf-specific styles which are based on the classic Original Penguin Earl Polo.
The most significant update comes within the fabric composition - now having been made with 100% polyester (44% recycled) with moisture wicking performance for pure comfort on the golf course.
Despite now being a technical golf polo shirt style, the Performance Earl Golf Polo still retains the look & feel of a classic cotton pique style and could still be worn away from the course with absolute ease.
