The Newsboy cap is a Flat Style Cap and became popular in Europe and North America in the late 19th and early 20th century.  It was worn by both men and boys.  Flat caps were popular in the early 20th century and worn by 'lower' class workers such as newsboys, dockworkers and farmers but was also worn by artisans.  Higher class sportsmen, drivers and golfers also sported this as a leisure hat. Although traditionally a men's cap, it has seen a resurgence in popularity with women.  It is now a mainstay in all hat enthusiasts hat collection.

The Kangol hat was founded in 1938 by Polish-born World War I veteran Jacques Spreiegen.  Kangol (the K from silk, the Ang from angora, and the OL from wool) was produced for workman, golfers and especially the soldiers. During and after the war the Kangol berets were the height of fashion.  In the 1960's, designer Mary Quant and Pierre Cardin worked with the company and graced the heads of the rich and famous including the Beatles and Arnold Palmer.  In the 1980's, Kangol berets made another entry in the fashion industry adopted by the hip hop community. Today, these hats are still popular and worn by musicians, artists and anyone who loves the flat cap with style and history.
