ORIGINAL PENGUIN all started when ambitious Munsingwear undergarment salesman, Abbot Pederson took a sales trip to NYC in 1955. Finding himself with time to kill before his flight home, Abbot Pederson stopped off at a local bar. On leaving the bar to find a taxi stand, he took the wrong turn and found himself looking at stuffed Penguins in a taxidermists window. Purchasing one of the penguins and naming him Pete, he took it aboard his flight. Knocking the head off, a flight attendant came to the rescue by using her tie to secure the head back in place and thus the iconic Pete the Penguin was born. Embroidered initially onto a golfing shirt, the classic embroidered penguin has since become an icon, synonymous with one of the worlds most famous fashion brands, ORIGINAL PENGUIN by MUNSINGWEAR.


ORIGINAL PENGUIN look set to offer their own take on the classic Sixties Mod Chelsea 'Beatle' Boot. In addition to this, there will be some fantastic colours in classic tried and tested models such as Retro brogue boots, authentic hiking boots and much much more.... so keep your eyes peeled on the ORIGINAL PENGUIN Footwear section of the Atom Retro website.
