Founded in 1865, Stetson grew out of the spirit of the West and grew into an American icon. John B. Stetson's kind gesture to a wayward traveler at the new frontier spawned the world's first 'cowboy hat'. Since then, Stetson has become a world leader in headwear, a trusted concept around the world, and has become standard equipment for enthusiasts around the world.
For over 150 years, Stetson has been making quality products that are built to last a lifetime. Stetson values good quality objects that get better with age. Stetson still makes the products using many of the same techniques that John B. did many years ago. This with a view to the needs of future generations.
