Manly Mondays! Original Penguin 60th Anniversary Shirt

Manly MondaysLulu1 Comment

Early on in my vintage buying career I would sift through the bins at my local Goodwill and I was forever coming across old Penguin golf shirts made out of synthetic fabrics.

The modern day Original Penguin brand has upped the ante on their old school designs. They are now one of my go to brands that I shop for my husband from. 

You can purchase this new Original Penguin 60th Anniversary shirt featuring a bold print of Penguins for $32.97 from Nordstrom Rack

David John Haskins of Bauhaus and Love & Rockets at Lulu's Vintage Store in Portland, Oregon

The Style Council, Manly MondaysLuluComment

David John Haskins of Bauhaus and Love & Rockets came into the store yesterday.
He had been in the store previously. This time around I said to him can I ask you a question and he said yes. I said when you were in the store last time I was trying to figure out who you were. I asked were you in an English band in the 1980's? And he said yes. I said I was trying to figure out which one...Pet Shop Boys, and then my mind went blank for any other 80's bands that I am a fan of. He said I was in Bauhaus and Love & Rockets. I said oh yes, I love both of those bands! He bought a piece of jewelry from me. I then asked if I could take his photo and have his autograph and he kindly obliged.
He is handsome, stylish, nice and polite!
Often times when it's slow at the store I crank up the volume on the speakers and rock out to Bela Lugosi's Dead, No New Tales To Tell, Ball of Confusion, and So Alive.
Today's encounter was such a great way to make my day!

This super cool vintage Bass Anglers Sportsman Society jumpsuit was on a mannequin in my store window. This man came in and said I want to buy that. He tried it on and it looked great! He said he was going on a fishing trip on the Willamette- so it was the perfect thing to buy.
