To reinvigorate his mojo, a legend needs only to look to his own glorious past -- Burt Reynolds tapped his ladies-man years for Boogie Nights, and your dad recently remembered how to dance. For glory-days'd duds, grab Penguin's fall collection at The Original Penguin store
Decked out in mid-century-modern rosewood and teak, Penguin's first Midwest standalone store'll be the first in the world to offer "Frisque Business" -- a collection that harkens back to Penguin's 1950s beginnings, with further inspiration drawn from the Pink Panther movies and Roman Coppola's CQ (CQ -- but of course). The "eclectic preppy" look starts with three pima cotton polos, chief among them the Earl: solid hued w/ contrast piping around the collar and buttons, it's a remake of Penguin's 1955 debut design, worn by everyone from Bing Crosby to Arnold Palmer -- a man so cool, he overcame having a non-alcoholic drink named after him. Other classics include sweet plaid pants, three-piece suits, fedoras, argyle inflected v-necks, and horizontally striped sweaters that won't make you look any fatter than pie already does
The line's detailed with subtle film homages, like t-shirts sporting film reels, or cufflinks inscribed "Take One" -- either referring to a director's call, or a familiar refrain from the free clinic during your own halcyon days as a ladies man.
