Over 75 years ago in a remote corner of Northwest England, Kangol was born. Founder Jaques Spreiregen created the name by combining the K from knitting, the ANG from angora and the OL from wool to reflect their hats made from the yarns. The brand was the major beret suppliers to the armed forces during World War II, including the famous Field Marshal Montgomery.
Kangol today champions the forward-thinking elements of urban street fashion, whilst traditional authenticity remains key. Kangol ranges have now expanded across men’s and women’s clothing to include their famous headwear alongside chinos, t-shirts, shirts, accessories, luggage and footwear.
