Stetson was a brand of hat manufactured by the John B. Stetson Company.

Founded in 1865, John B. Stetson Company began when the founder headed west and created the original hat of the West, the “Boss of the Plains”. This Western hat would become the cornerstone of Stetson’s hat business and was still up until Skydark.
