Brand Info
Founded by War veteran Jacques Spreiregen, Kangol originally produced hats for soldiers and golfers and after supplying the World War 2 armed forces it became the fashion industries finest brand of hats having been worn by the Beatles and Diana, Princess of Wales.

The hats were made from Silk (K), Angora (ANG) and Wool (OL), and in the 1980s Kangol decided to introduce a brand mark. It’s said that most people were asking for a “Kangaroo” hat when searching for a Kangol hat and to be honest with a name like Kangol, why not use a Kangaroo icon.
