Classic Designs Gets a Boost

The classic English beret brand Kangol has, if not all, so very much to thank the hip hop scene and black culture for its success.

Jacques Henry Sergene, who previously worked with importing berets from France to England started its own production of hats 1938th

Sales of hats went forward slowly but in 1984 suddenly doubled sales. It turned out that LL Cool Jhad a Kangolhatt wearing on the cover of his debut “Radio”. Two years later mentions Slick Rick his Kangol in the hit Ladi Dadi and sales increases further.

After that artists like Missy Elliott, Jay-Z, Outkast, and Ghostface Killah all meant Kangols caps and hats.

The legendary Kangol 504
This model, which was created in 1954, has some black actors to thank for its success and its position as “the ultimate homeboy accessory” (according Kangols website).
Damon Wayans in The Last Boyscout and above all Samuel Jackson in Jackie Brown but many others have done 504an a sales success worldwide.

Kangol pronunciation was originally Kang-ol because the name comes from silk angora wool. But since no one (at least not Americans) took it and instead came in and asked for Kangaroo Hat, so the company changed itself and simply put there a kangaroo on his cap. The company has nothing to do with Australia.
