The Chi Chi Rodriguez 2023 Summer Collection from Original Penguin by Munsingwear has been launched, featuring a blend of retro and modern styles that reflect the brand’s classic heritage.
The collection draws inspiration from the iconic golfer’s signature swagger, both on and off the course, and incorporates his distinct style, including his trademark fedora and “sword dance” celebration.
The collection also features the “Iwalani” floral print, inspired by Chi Chi’s wife’s love of Hawaii, with a retro heritage style and a modern twist.
Chi Chi is excited to wear the Penguin again, having first worn Munsingwear on tour in the 1960s and winning his first five tournaments in the same shirt.
The Chi Chi collection boasts advanced performance technologies and sustainable and luxurious fabrics. The collection features recycled yarns blended with elastane, such as Repreve, which offers 4-way stretch and extremely lightweight comfort. Additionally, the fabrics are designed to wick away moisture and provide UPF sun protection, while eco-friendly finishes ensure that the collection is stylish and environmentally conscious.
Highlights of the Chi Chi capsule include:
- Special Penguin logo inspired by Chi Chi’s iconic fedora
- Refreshed classic Chi Chi polos, including the iconic Earl, Heritage Tipped Mock, Floral and Tribal Prints, and All Over Pete
- Heritage Micro Floral Print shorts and colorful trousers
- Heritage Graphic T-Shirts
- Heritage Sweater Hoodie
- Heritage Fedora
“This new collection perfectly reflects who I am as a golfer and person,” added Rodriguez. “It’s a nostalgic collection, very inspirational, and one that I am very proud of.”
