An adorable old-school golf-hat style cap with subtle details, the Good Driver Cabbie from Original Penguin is an eight-panel cap constructed from a classic woven herringbone. Reminiscent of an earlier era, of the glory days of Bob Hope and Byron Nelson (you know, that famous golfer from the Forties?), newsy caps are back. This slouchy hat features an embroidered Original Penguin logo on the back, a single brass brim snap, a cotton poplin inner lining with a great retro print and a classic top-button.
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.
