Village Hat Shop has been a longtime Kangol partner. In November 2012 we launched a Kangol Store-Within-A-Store at our Flagship location in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego. Check out the video for scenes from the launch party and a tour of the store. Kangol, founded in 1938, continues to remain hip, reinventing itself through the decades. From Run DMC in the early days of hip-hop, to stylish golfers like Payne Stewart, to Samuel L. Jackson's iconic headwear, etc., Kangol has always been on the cutting edge.
