Created in 1938, Kangol first started by marketing berets, presented as a fashion item must in the post-war period. In order to differentiate himself from the competition, the founder of the company chose to take the name Kangol as a brand name. The most widely accepted theory is that the founder combined the K of "knitting", the ANG of "angora" and OL of "wool". Whatever the origin, the name chosen was an inspired invention. It is really from the fact of having equipped the British army with berets during the second world war (and more particularly for General Montgomery), that the brand gained its notoriety.The Kangolbrand produces a wide range of headgear, from berets to caps. Its unique style and its famous kangaroo logo are known and recognized all over the world. Kangol fuses British tradition with urban hip hop mixed with modernity, for a casual or sportswear lookfor any occasion!
