Original Penguin

Original Penguin Logo
In 1955, a sportswear icon was born from the most unusual of places. Fueled by whiskey, Abbot Pederson purchased an unlikely drinking buddy for his flight home in the form of a stuffed penguin he named Pete. A quip from the seductive flight attendant onboard led Pederson to embroider this character on his new shirts. Pete the Penguin has left his mark on a league of legends from Frank to Bing and Clint to Arnie. Original Penguin had been adorned and adored by the masters of leisure and sport to define itself as an American classic. Still revered by the originals of today, this iconic brand now fully encompasses the lifestyle of what it means to be an original.

I bought these for my sons for Christmas- they wear size 34 pants and I got them XL and they like them. They fit loosely. They probably could have worn size Large except for the fact they are both 6’3 so Lrg would have been too short for my big boys. They liked them so much I even bought myself a pair of medium. I could have worn a size small- I normally wear a size 6 and 8- I am 5’6ish. I weigh 132ish. I like them baggy- the medium is a tad loose in the waist on me (a woman.)

I recommend 100% this brand (Original Penguin). This particular slip on shoes are very comfortable and the print design is unique! Delivery service on time. Great prices and discounts!

I'm a true 10.5 size. These guys are just a tad larger. I like wide feeling shoes an these are perfect. No arch support so i install my own insoles an toss the originals. $130.00 a bit high for me and hope they last 1yr.

If you like the Van's style slip on shoe, but are looking for something with a bit more durability/quality, this is a good choice.

Love these pajama pants. Very comfortable and they fit perfect. The bottom "elastic" helps to prevent the pant from riding up while sleeping, but it's not tight at all, just loosely around the leg. Thinking of buying another pair.

Very pretty shoe, but it runs crazy small! I’ve gotten penguin sneakers for my boyfriend several times, and this pair runs weirdly 2 sizes too small. I don’t know if there was a manufacturing error or a serious design flaw, but shoes are standard sizes and these are ridiculous.

The problem with this shoe is in the design. The instep has a seam that creates friction at the middle of the arch. This could possibly be combatted by the shoe having a liner that covered the seam, or by wearing no show socks, but the whole aesthetic of the shoe begs to be worn without socks. So it begs the question, "why wear this style of shoe if you can't wear it without socks?"

I usually wear 10 in gym shoes 9.5 sometimes 9 in dress shoes. I got the recommended 9 and my heels were slipping out of the back on the shoe slightly, but enough. I really wanted this shoe to fit. I ordered 8.5 sure enough it fit great! I also wear orthotics in my shoes. The leather is thick and stiff and I’m sure will wear in wonderfully. I have been looking for something business casual and nice for awhile. I’m so grateful they have easy free exchanges! Zappos makes it easy!! Customer Service reps are all clear warm personable and I can feel their smile over the phone. Thanks Zappos!

It's hard to move in these shorts, the material has zero give or stretch. Standing still not moving they're great, but just walking around apartment was difficult. Certainly you can't swim in these.

I wanted a suit that was shorter in the leg and a bit more fitted than what I have been wearing. This item was what I was looking for. I liked the style. I’m pleased with the purchase.

Love these pants, bought the blue and grey colors. They have a little stretch in them which makes them very comfortable to wear. I'm 6'2'' and 190 lbs and a 34x32 fits me perfectly!

Very disappointed. Their slim fit XS is still huge. Not a slim fitting shirt at all and much bigger than the size guide they indicate. It's too bad because I was looking for an alternative to fred perry polos but unfortunately their cuts are just better. It's also not black, as it appears to be online. I will say that the style and packaging and material looks high quality. Just disappointed by the color and fit.
