A classic trilby style fedora with details to spare, the Danube Hat from Original Penguin is a high-quality cap in a three-color gray, black and blue plaid. A design that oozes retro-cool, this lightweight, beautifully molded hat also includes a silk contrast inner lining and an embossed brass Original Penguin logo on the side.
Recognized as a true American classic, Original Penguin was born in 1955 after founder Abbot Pederson visited NYC on a business trip, had a few whiskeys, bought a real stuffed penguin (Peter), and followed an airline stewardess’ advice to immortalize him on a shirt. The brand’s signature golf polos are iconic, and helped usher in a brand revival beginning in 2000.
From Jack to Arnie, Bob to Bing, Original Penguin has been worn by the masters of leisure and sport and defined itself as an American classic for more than 50 years.
