langhornestetson1-21Stetson has partnered with alternative-country musician Langhorne Slim on a limited-edition hat. The hat, which will retail for $95, is crafted out of 100% New Zealand sheep’s wool and made in the brand’s Texas factory.

“I’ve always been a hat man, even when I was a little boy,” said Slim. “I remember raiding my grandfathers’ closets when I was a kid; I’d go for the hats first, especially the Stetsons. I’ve worn a hat nearly every single day since. Getting to design my own Stetson with the great Matt Deckard has been a dream come true, a high honor, and a thing I know would make my grandfathers proud.”

“For a century and a half Stetson has played a major part in contemporary culture,” said Stetson CEO Izumi Kajimoto. “Langhorne Slim embodies the sense of freedom and creativity synonymous with Stetson. His music, style, and all-American charm make him a perfect addition to Stetson’s roster of influential collaborators.”

In addition to the collaboration hat, Stetson will also be involved in Langhorne Slim’s 2016 tour, which is kicking off in January.
