Born British, raised on the streets of New York. At it’s core, Kangol prides itself on producing innovative and quality products using many of the same techniques that were developed over 80 years ago when the brand was founded in Northern England in 1938. Although no Kangol hat has ever actually been manufactured in Australia, the Kangaroo logo was adopted in 1983 because Americans commonly asked where they could get "the Kangaroo hat". Kangol headwear is already iconic in popular culture, and has been referenced in music and even movies like Straight Outta Compton where Ice Cube gets into a dispute with a New York rapper, eventually telling him "Wearing a Kangol don't make you LL Cool J!"
