The products

makes have the look and feel of sports authenticity and there's a good reason for that--the company was founded in 1947 and has been run by the same people ever since. Twin brothers and Italian immigrants, Arthur and Henry D’Angelo grew up working at stadiums and fields, which shows through in their collection.

The D’Angelos were pioneers quick to see the future of sports licensing by selling pennants and other sports memorabilia on the streets around their home field Fenway Park. Through hard work, good instincts and passion, the brothers were able to grow their business from a single street cart to a premiere brand that melds sport and style.

Continuing with the tradition of producing a mix of headwear and apparel, the company has become a licensed partner with MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, as well as over 650 colleges. The
