Original Penguin

I’m not old enough to actually remember this but Original Penguin used to be known only for their iconic golf shirts.  Well the times they are a changing.  Certainly I have seen the evolution of the Original Penguin brand through their design of shoes.

PreppyBaba's very own pair!

I love my Penguins because they go great with pretty much everything.  No, I wouldn’t wear them to something formal but I would wear them just as easily with shorts as I would jeans, khaki’s or even a dressier pant.

Richard Chai has brought a subtle symphony of stripes and plaids together in this 90’s era grunge look, yet there is a difference and the difference is fit!  Unlike the slouchy-‘where’s my body in all of this clothing’ look of grunge Chai has chiesled a cut into this collection that is worthy of any Dandi who likes to spend time in the gym.

What I also love is that not everything in the collection is trying to fight against each other.  There are some very solid pieces here in this debut collection.  It is casual yet elegant and not fussy, a nice way to transition into Spring from a long winters nap.
