Seventy-five years ago in a remote corner of Northwest England, Kangol was officially born. Founder Jacques Spreiregen created the name by combining the K from knitting, the ANG from angora, and the OL from wool. Kangol gained notoriety for providing berets to the British army in WWII, and later by outfitting the English Olympic Team in the 1948 opening ceremonies.
Today Kangol draws upon its rich heritage to define the product handwriting resulting in a creative fusion of British heritage from 1938 combined with its roots at the heart of the hip hop phenomenon of 1983, and mixing it with forward fashion to remain the most influential and famously recognized global headwear brand of all time. We are proud to be showcasing our collection for the first time at Agenda this coming August in Long Beach, CA.
