Named for the year in which it was founded, ‘47 was run for decades by the D’Angelo family. Henry and Arthur D’Angelo, the twins for which the company was first named, built an apparel company that became intertwined with the fan experience outside Fenway, especially on game days, when its sprawling store across Jersey Street from the ballpark was packed with fans.
