“My dad always taught us, if you work hard and you have passion, you’re going to be successful. For us it’s about hard work, it’s about passion, and it’s about family” – Mark D’Angelo
’47’s present-day success comes from never forgetting its roots.
In 1947, twin brothers and Italian immigrants, Arthur and Henry D’Angelo founded Twins Enterprise, now ’47. The D’Angelos were entrepreneurial pioneers who were quick to see the future of sports licensing by selling pennants and other sports memorabilia on the streets around Fenway Park. Through a combination of hard work, sound instincts and incredible passion, the brothers were able to grow their business from a single street cart to a premier sports lifestyle brand that uniquely melds sport and style.
By continuing with the tradition of producing a unique mix of the finest headwear and apparel and maintaining an unparalleled attention to detail, ‘47 has established themselves as a premium global sports lifestyle brand. ‘47 is proud to be a licensed partner with the four key professional American sports leagues: MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, as well as over 900 colleges in the US.
’47 has recently opened distribution channels in Australia and New Zealand. Furthermore, ’47 has signed licenses with a number of local sporting leagues and universities to expand their product range. Partners include the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Olympic Committee (AOC), Big Bash League (BBL), Cricket Australia, Socceroos, and the University of Western Sydney.
As the second generation moves ’47 forward, where it all started will never be forgotten - rooted in family values, focused on genuine relationships, and the simple belief that the future is what we create.
“The foundation of our company sits on Yawkey Way in the concession stores we own. The main store is 25,000 square feet and provides us with a great opportunity to interact directly with our customers. They know us, and we know them. Today there are three generations of D’Angelos working in our stores at any given time” – Bobby D’Angelo
