May 5, 1830
John Batterson Stetson
John Batterson Stetson was born on May 5, 1830, but his Stetson "Boss of the Plains" cowboy hat wouldn't appear until 1866. Making hats for men wasn't a highly respected profession at the time, but Stetson and his attention to quality changed all that. Today a Stetson isn't "a" hat, it's "the" hat.
