Crafted (and artfully distressed) by hand in the U.S.A., the 1865 Distressed Open Road Royal Deluxe combines the key features of the Royal Deluxe—the supple feel, flexible finish and snap brim—with unique style details. Like all Open Roads, the 1865 Distressed Royal Deluxe easily transitions from city to country, and looks equally sharp on a woman or a man.

Introduced in 1937, the Open Road was originally sold with an open crown, which could then be creased to the customer’s liking. Since 1948, it has been finished with a traditional, hand-pressed cattleman crease, and has been worn by modern pioneers and trailblazers ever since, from artists and outlaws to Presidents (including, most notably, LBJ, who was rarely photographed on his Texas ranch without his Open Road).

The 1865 Distressed Open Road Royal Deluxe features a genuine leather sweatband and a 4 ¼” crown outfitted with a grosgrain hat band, an eye-catching feather detail and a hat pin honors Stetson’s Western heritage—and a nod to the pioneering spirit that lives on in every hat we sell.

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.
