1. Introduction

Kangol is a British clothing brand founded in 1938 with a name reflecting the original production: K for knitting, ANG for angora wool, and OL for wool. Because it sounds a lot like Kangaroo, the Kangaroo logo was officially adopted by Kangol in 1983.


The founding dates back to the 1930s and was produced by Jacques Spreiregen, a World War I veteran. In 1938, Spreiregen, who worked as an importer in London, opened a factory in Cumbria, England, which was run with his nephew, Joseph Meisner.



In 2002, the Kangol clothing brand was acquired by Kangol Clothing North America LLC, a subsidiary of Chesterfield Manufacturing Company in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2003, Chesterfield was acquired by Tomasello Inc., which is wholly owned and led by David W. Tomasello. Bollman Hat Company, one of the largest hat makers in the United States, has owned the worldwide commercial rights to Kangol hats since 2002.
