We are proud to welcome our full line of vintage-inspired The Brooklyn Circus Cardigans and Hats. See below for pictures and descriptions of these wonderful menswear pieces. 

1) BKC "Coach Pollard" Shawl Cardigan

  • Old English “B” felt applique
  • Black/cream 100% lambswool
  • Leather Elbow Patch details 
2) BKC "Green Mile" Shawl Cardigan

A beautifully hand constructed, 100% lambswool knit cardigan, embellished with leather buttons and felt “1920″ BKc applique. Why 1920? What is now the NFL (National Football League) was loosely formed in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association. Yet what is interesting is after 1926, all five of the black players that were still in the National Football League left the league. Several teams were kicked out of the league that year, and with a large number of available, talented white players, black players were generally the first to be removed, never to return again. Several black players did play in the league the following years, but from 1933 to 1939 the black players were officially banned from the league. The NFL did not welcome another black player until after World War II.

Our BKc 8 panel hats are hand made in the U.S.A in a factory with over 62 years of experience & tradition. Well made hats were a thing of the past until we unearthed the traditions of this amazing hat factory to bring you these beautiful BKc eight panel hats. Our 8 panel hats are a part of The Bearded Man's daily wardrobe.
