the future is what we create.
In 1947, twin brothers Henry and Arthur D’Angelo immigrated from Italy to America, and their family settled in Boston. Scrappy and entrepreneurial, they were determined to help their family make ends meet. They quickly sensed the energy of Redsox fandom, and starting peddling sports memorabilia on the streets of Boston at the mere age of 12.
That same tenacious spirit that started in 1947 has infused the brand culture that ’47 enjoys today. As a second generation moves ’47 forward, they will never forget where they started – rooted in family values, genuine relationships and the simple belief that the future is what we create.
