The baseball cap became a staple item for fans as far back as the 1860s. With a long history in sport, that floppy look always seems to spark nostalgic feelings, while remaining a modern wardrobe staple today –– falling into a diverse range of personal style, in and out of baseball season.
Like anyone who has an attachment to sports paraphernalia, Arthur and Henry D’Angelo, founders of ’47, had their own idea of what the perfect cap was, so they brought it to life. Their street cart business began right outside Fenway Park in 1947, inspired by the electric energy of Red Sox fans and their devotion to showing team pride.
For over seventy years now, ’47 has been creating that familiar baseball cap style –– one that transcends generations, looks timeless in design and feels rich in stories.
The ’47 CLEAN UP has a relaxed, slouchy crown that forms to your shape. The adjustable strap with a metal alpha buckle in back helps you dial it in. The visor is already curved to perfection, but still flexible enough if you like to make it your own. The signature silhouette is made from garment washed cotton twill for that worn-in look and feel.
A new MLB season is in full swing, and we have a big roster of ’47 CLEAN UP styles for you to choose from.
