If you are looking for the most iconic cowboy hat ever made, look no further. This is the hat that started it all! 

Introducing the Stetson Boss of the Plains, the original cowboy hat created by John B. Stetson in 1865! As Stetson's Boss of the Plains hat took over the West in the late 1800s, the name Stetson became synonymous with what would later be known as the 'Cowboy Hat'. 

The Stetson Boss of the Plains pays homage to the rich heritage of the American West with its classic design and its old-fashioned hand-distressed finish. As John B. Stetson originally designed it, the Boss of the Plains is made of a durable, light weight, high quality 6X fur felt, making it suitable for a lifetime of wear, either out on the range or around the town.

With a wide 4" brim and 4 5/8" Cattleman Crown, The Boss Of The Plains offers superb sun protection while exuding timeless cowboy style. The leather hat band adds a touch of rugged sophistication, and the satin liner ensures comfort on your journeys. Inside, a leather sweatband keeps you cool and dry, making this hat as functional as it is fashionable.

Handmade in Garland, Texas, each Boss of the Plains cowboy hat is a testament to Stetson's commitment to quality craftsmanship. The Stetson Boss of the Plains is more than just a hat; it's a symbol of American history and the enduring spirit of the West. Choose the original cowboy hat and step into the legacy of John B. Stetson today!

Please note: Each Boss of the Plains is painstakingly handcrafted, hand-dyed, and hand-distressed to give it that authentic, trail-worn look of the 1860s West. It is then finished with the perfect unique leather hat band. Because of this, no two Boss of the Plains hats have the exact same color, look, or character. That means that the hat you receive is bound to look slightly different from the pictures seen here in shape, size, color, distressing, and hat band. Each Boss of the Plains is completely and totally unique! Like you, each Boss of the Plains is a true one of a kind!
