The Original Cowboy Hat
There’s a reason the Stetson name is synonymous with cowboy hats—John B. Stetson did it first and he did it right. The Boss of the Plains was a flat brim cowboy hat that John B. Stetson crafted by hand in 1865. This original hat was designed to be waterproof and durable to meet the demands of the cowboy’s work. Creating so much more than just a hat, this was the dawn of a new era—the genesis of the Western style that’s still so beloved today. While we offer a wide variety of traditional and contemporary designs, all of these flat brim hats are worthy tributes to the quintessential flat cowboy hat that started it all.
