Kangol-—Flipping Heads for Over 70 Years

Kangol is a label that has been specializing in headwear and accessories for over70 years.

Founded in 1938 by Jaques Spreiregen in Cumbria, England, the name derives from three words: Knit + ANGor + woOL.

Originally sported by workers and golfers, Kangol berrets were also worn by the British military in WWII, most notably by General Bernard Montgomery.

In the 1980’s Kangol entered a new phase of fashion history as they were embraced by many groups with the hip-hop community.

Since then, Kangol’s flip of the coin has been “heads” all the way!
