Inspired by the hat created originally by Baron Hats for Dan Blocker to wear as his character of
"Hoss Cartwright"
in "Bonanza"


"With a gun and rope and hat full of hope!..."

--from the  lyrics to "Bonanza"

Yep, that's right... the theme to "Bonanza"  the all American mega-hit had lyrics.  Hear Pa Cartwright  himself (Lorne Greene) sing it on Youtube!

Baron Hats has always been proud of the fact that our founder Eddie Baron worked on all the original hats for the whole Cartwright Clan on this long running institution of a series for almost 15 years! (Please see Eddie's Notes about the Bonanza hats in our "Hollywood Production Notes" page).

And when it comes to the Cartwright's, the most requested hat of all is that of the beloved gentle (and sometimes not so gentle) giant, Hoss ("Little Joe" coming in a close second). Perhaps the reason is that it is a very unique hat, to say the least!

So unique in fact, what with its towering steamer-bowler crown, adorned with a grosgrain ribbon with "Gentleman Bow", that when people come to our studio and see the original hat, they immediately recognize it, and begin humming: "dum-diddy-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-dum", followed by their very best "Hoss" impression.   If anything symbolizes a man with both Herculean power mixed with a heart as big as the Ponderosa itself... it's the "Hoss" hat!   

To create our "Hoss", inspired by Dan Blocker's trademark hat, we use a specially created block based on Eddie Baron's extensive notes of the original that was crafted for him. To support the massive 7 1/2" crown, we have specially ordered furs that are thicker than the usual "Western Weight".

Each hat is hand shaped and brushed to create the famous "Hoss" hulking crown bowling.

Each hat comes with an engraved leather sweatband, silk-satin lining, our special Lifetime Guarantee, a signed and numbered personalized Certificate of Authenticity, and our custom Baron hatbox suitable for storage.
 
You can also order our Hoss hat to be custom crafted for you with our special Flex Pay Payment plan.

And, if you really want to look as if you've just come rushing back to dinner with "Pa" and your other brothers, after a whole day wrestling bears, then we will even age it for you, as we did the original production hats, for an additional charge.
