Kangol is an English fashion brand famous mainly for its caps and hats. The brand was founded in 1920 by Jacques Spreiregen. The name is a combination of the following three words: Knitting + Angora + Wool. Kangol became famous when it started supplying berets for the British Army during World War II and headgear for the English national team for the opening ceremony of the 1948 Olympics.
Kangol - how it grows
The classic statement piece by Kangol is its seamless flat cap, model “504”, which was first introduced in the 1950s. As it turned out, the product soon became popular among famous musicians and designers. Headgear by Kangol was soon worn by the Beatles, Mary Quant, Pierre Cardin and Arnold Parker.
The characteristic Kangol logo, which you can still see on the products by this brand, dates back to 1938. As you could have guessed, it is a kangaroo. It was a brilliant move, because once the logo was introduced, Kangol hats became famous virtually overnight. Since then, everybody wears them. Among the celebrities who love this brand we could mention: Madonna, Michael Jordan, Samuel L. Jackson and Grandmaster Flash, who even wore a Kangol hat at the Hip Hop Hall of Fame.
