While Kangol began its legacy in 1938, it entered into an entirely new phase in fashion by the 1980s. The heritage brand was adopted by the hip hop community at large as Run-DMC, LL COOL J, Slick Rick, Grandmaster Flash and The Notorius B.I.G all proudly donned their premium quality hats. Nic and Saul chat about how being embraced by a subculture gained Kangol a new audience while updating the brand’s strong English image.
