This logo gives the warm fuzzies as it reminds me of my late grandfather, Emilio Galang.
We called it Munsingwear and recognized it by its original penguin logo
My grandfather, an avid golfer back in the day, used to wear them a lot. A former Commissioner of Immigration, his portrait still hangs at the Bureau of Immigration in Intramuros, where he used to hold office.
Started in 1955 as line of golf shirts, it was sported by gold legends Jack Nicklaus (R)
and even Arnold Palmer (in white) before his name also became a brand of sportswear.
It was worn by Clint Eastwood in the ’70s
In 1995 it was relaunched as Original Penguin and has since been spotted on Brad Pitt
Darren Criss of Glee
and Niall Horan Of One Direction.

Esquire Philippines‘s “Woman We Love” is Georgina Wilson, who shows her bolder side in this July’s issue.
The British-Filipina “It Girl” unravels how she truly feels about certain issues in the country, and why it’s always important to take a stand—whether or not the majority agrees.
“Having a strong opinion doesn’t mean you’re negative or whatever. It’s just that you love your country and you have hopes for it. And that demands that you speak up and do something about it,” she tells Esquire.
Esquire trains the spotlight on every man’s passion as it releases its Sports Issue, featuring legendary sports journalist Ronnie Nathanielsz, PBA player Mick Pennisi, and boxer Nonito Donaire Jr., who finds his match and greatest defender in his wife, Tae Kwon Do blackbelter Rachel Marcial.
More than just being The Filipino Flash’s equal, Rachel is all too capable in the controversy-riddled world of boxing as she reveals interesting details about Nonito, his family, her career, and their marriage.
Also in this month’s issue of Esquire are a couple of lists featuring songs every man should listen to in 2012, things your father should have taught you, Sonny Angara in Man at His Best, and more.
Esquire Philippines is available in newsstands and bookstores nationwide at Php 195.
All iPad users also get a chance to have a copy of the Sports Issue’s alternate cover.
