Cowboy hats were essential tools for anyone working in the elements of the American Old West. Stetson's first style had an open crown and was nicknamed the "Boss of the Plains". After that came the creased look that was destined to become the "Cowboy Style". Cowboy hats can fit anyone's personal stlye with different brim widths and crown shapes. You can also customize your hat style with your own hatband or stampede string to make it that much more unique to you. Some get even more creative, add beads or bling to theirs to stand out that much more. What makes your hat unique?
