I purchased this Panama retro Fedora and was quite pleased with the quality of the hat. It has a nice tight weave with medium grain fibers that allow for excellent brim shaping. Instructions on how to shape the brim to your liking can be found on Google. My hat arrived with a 360 degree upturned brim that was not to my liking. The hat, however, is an excellent buy for the money and looks very sharp.

This hat was on backorder for what seemed like ages! I canceled my order because I needed it for summer. I got a phone call a few weeks ago from a customer service representative and she said the item was back in stock in case I was still interested. I bought it and received it about a week ago, it is a real gem for the price. Will stash it away for next summers golf outings. Sure is nice to know that my patronage is appreciated

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.

John B. Stetson experienced trying times in his life but after it all he relied on the one thing he did exceptionally well, making hats. He was trained by his father, a master hatter, and applied his skills and knowledge to a trade that, at the time was not held in high regard.

A hatter was seen as unreliable, lazy, or aloof, only looking to make his money and go have fun. John B. Stetson changed all that and built one of America's most well-known and successful businesses. The longevity and history of the John B. Stetson Company is based on innovation and quality! John B. Stetson led the hat industry his entire career by designing new hat styles for fashion and function. When it came to quality it was his creed and for the past 130 years it has so stamped the product that the name and the word are synonymous.

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.
