In 1865, with $100, John B. Stetson rented a small room, bought the tools he needed, bought $10 worth of fur and the John B. Stetson Hat Company was born. A year later the Hat of the West or the now famous Boss of the Plains hat was born and the name Stetson was on its way to becoming the mark of quality, durability, innovation and beauty.
The Stetson Safari Master Hat is a woven hat that will shade you from the harsh rays of the sun and keep your head cool. This hat gives you excellent ventilation and has a 2 1/2 inch brim. In the style of the gentlemen farmer in the old west.
Stetson is the standard in hats, the essence of the spirit of the West and an icon of everyday American lifestyle. Because of its authentic American heritage, Stetson remains as a part of history. It's not just a hat, it's THE HAT!
