Made in Garland, Texas, the Stetson hat has been a symbol for many things. The John B. Stetson company was founded in 1865. Synonymous with the western lifestyle, these hats are perhaps best known for adorning the heads of cowboys and cowgirls throughout the world.

Featured in movies and television around the world, not to mention being worn by the rich and famous, as well as “the guy next door,” the company’s influence in head fashion reaches far and wide. The legacy of its owner lives on with the company’s commitment to style as well as quality, and hand detailing which is second-to-none. Each hat that bears the Stetson name must pass a rigorous inspection stage prior to being shipped to a devoted customer. And even more than a fashion statement, many ranchers across Texas as well as the U.S. purchase Stetsons to help shield them from the elements.
