’47 is a privately held sports lifestyle brand founded in Boston, MA, by twin brothers, Arthur and Henry D’Angelo in 1947.

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.
Previously known as Twins Enterprises, ’47 is currently managed by Arthur’s four sons, Bobby, David, Mark, and Steven. ’47 is a proud partner of Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Hockey League, the National Basketball Association and over 900 collegiate programs and owner of Old Time Sports. ’47 employs over 300 corporate and retail associates around the world and is headquartered in Boston and Westwood, MA.
