Stetson SFEPTN-774007 El Patron 30X Premier Felt Hat Black - A true gentleman’s staple, the Stetson El Patron has a stately presence that’s hard to ignore. Impeccably crafted from luxurious 30X fur felt, it’s both remarkably soft and durable enough to last a lifetime of wear. The classic oval cattleman styling is accented by a subtle self-felt hatband, dyed the same color as the body of the hat. The hatband itself is set off by a sterling silver three-piece buckle inscribed with the initials of our legendary founder — John B. Stetson — and detailed with discreet gold overlay and inset stones. Inside, a satin liner and leather sweatband provide perfect comfort, whether you’ve spent all day on the range or city streets. Proudly made in the U.S.A., this is a hat that will see you through a lifetime of adventure.

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.
Today the Stetson hat factory in Garland, Texas is one of the largest in the country and produces a line of hats in hundreds of different styles and colors. In spite of this size, however, classic styling and premium quality remain as the driving forces behind each and every hat. As a result, Stetson hats are the most well known hats in the world. Wherever and whenever hats are discussed Stetson will be mentioned.
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 and, for the same reason will continue into the future.
The John B. Stetson Company, founded by John B. Stetson in 1865, was the maker of the Stetson cowboy hats, but ceased manufacturing in 1970. Stetson hats are now being manufactured in Garland, Texas, by Hatco, Inc., who also produce Resistol and Charlie 1 Horse hats.
Stetson resumed manufacturing in the 1980s, but the company went bankrupt in 1986. It was purchased by Hat Brands, a company owned by Irving Joel.
Since 2009, Stetson has been owned by Pro Equine Group.
