The Stetson. From Philadelphia, PA.
High-quality hats have been made at the company founded by John B. Stetson in Philadelphia since 1865.
Alongside the famous Stetson for »western cattlemen and cowboys« there are, and always have been, sports hats which are appreciated for their finish, fit and durability. Winston Churchill, for example, who on official occasions always wore a Homburg, preferred to wear a Stetson when off-duty.
