Created in the 1860s by our founder John B. Stetson on a trip out West seeking open skies and new frontiers, The Boss of the Plains is the hat that started it all. In keeping with its unparalleled heritage, each Boss of the Plains is made the old-fashioned way, dyed and shaped and distressed entirely by hand. This results in a hat that is truly one of a kind, with its own unique shape and level of distressing. (Note: As a result of this time-honored process, your hat may vary from the version shown at left.)

Each Boss of the Plains is crafted from high-quality 6X fur felt for a lifetime of wear, with a signature leather hat band, interior leather sweatband, and satin lining. With its unmistakable profile and signature distressed patina, the Boss of the Plains may be our most iconic hat—the ultimate marriage of form and function.

NOTE: The Boss of the Plains is handcrafted, hand-dyed and hand-distressed. That means no two hats have the same exact character, making each hat truly one of a kind. It's then finished with a leather hat band, which is hand-picked and unique to each hat.

Since 1865

True Heritage

Our story begins in the 1860s, when John B. Stetson was prospecting for gold in the Colorado Rockies and, struck by a sudden rainstorm, quickly fashioned a felt hat for protection. The modern cowboy hat was born, and more than a century and a half later, John B.’s pioneering legacy and commitment to quality live on in everything we make.

Crafted to last

Legendary Quality

From start to finish, our signature hats are made by hand in Texas, using only the finest materials and time-tested techniques, often utilizing the same machinery we’ve been using for decades. The result? The world’s most legendary hats, designed for the long haul and crafted to be passed on from one generation to the next.

Worn the world over

Singular Style

Our hats are iconic, and yet, each is truly unique—because no two Stetsons are ever worn the same way. Put one on, and you’re joining a community of true individuals unified in their appreciation of enduring quality and style that transcends trend.
