Penguins might be the best-dressed birds on the planet, but it’s Penguin apparel that’s becoming wildly popular on the court. The clothing company is gaining attention on both the tennis and pickleball courts. In fact, Penguin is the official clothing brand for USA Pickleball. There are also a few tennis professionals, such as Vasek Pospisil and Ajla Tomljanovic wearing the contemporary brand. If you recall, Tomljanovic was wearing an adorable Penguin floral tennis dress in Blueberry Pancake when she defeated Serena Williams at the US Open last month. From the moment she stepped onto Arthur Ashe Stadium, she was swimming in fashion compliments.
The Penguin Collection
The Penguin brand originated under the Munsingwear name. It was founded by Abbot Pederson in 1955. Abbot was a traveling salesman who purchased a stuffed penguin at a taxidermist shop while in New York. He named the penguin, Pete, and the two began their apparel adventure together.
Keep in mind that Munsingwear has been synonymous with a league of legends. Real originals like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Arnold Palmer, and Clint Eastwood. These are just a few of the notorious names who have worn the stylish brand during the height of their careers. You might say, they helped the clothing company take flight.
Today, the American sportswear manufacturer is leveraging its reputation for producing high-end apparel in nitch spaces. Golf is one of their most trendy audiences. Likewise, racquet and paddle players around the world are recognizing the quality of the Penguin brand. And the company is responding by offering a variety of innovative fashions.
In addition to collared shirts, like men’s and women’s polos, Penguin is producing tennis dresses, skirts, shorts, and T-shirts with a fun saying such as “Love Set Match”. They also have long sleeve tops, jackets, hats, and visors. Tennis Express carries all of these items and more.
Much of their apparel has modern-day features. Take for example the Women`s Veronica Sun Production 1/4 Zip Tennis Top. This piece is perfect for warming up, or cooling down. The ¼-zip allows you to control the airflow and it has UPF protection built-in. It also has a rounded hem and piping across the shoulders and at the cuffs. The recognizable `Sticker Pete` logo is located on the back, in the middle of the collar. Did I mention this is made from 30% Recycled Polyester? Penguin cares about the environment and not just the Antarctic coastline.
Another piece from their collection is the Penguin Men`s Roadmap Print Pieced Performance Tennis Top. Talk about a show-stopper. This shirt is made from a lightweight, high gauge mesh and is 30% Recycled Polyester. The vibrant colors look similar to a roadmap, encouraging athletes to find their way, and go the distance. It also pairs wonderfully with the Men’s Solid Performance 8-Inch Tennis Short. These have an elastic waist with an external drawstring and are made with 4-way stretch fabric.
Lastly, the PENGUIN Women`s Pete Waistband 13-Inch Tennis Skort could be the skort of the year! It has a bell-shaped hemline along with a fit and flare silhouette. The Pete logo envelops an exposed elastic waistband, and an internal pair of shorties are perfect for holding a ball or two. This quality skort gives you a stylish look without sacrificing any comfort.
