Hatters Hats of Fort Worth has been making its way to the stock show since around 1965, according to owner John Ward.

The business’ booth sells and custom fits hats for cowboys and cowgirls every year at the Stock Show and Rodeo.

After Ward took over the business in 1980 he continued bringing it to the stock show.

“We provide a service and enjoy it,” Ward said. “Seeing the same people year after year, it’s like seeing family,”

Hatters doesn’t have a brick-and-mortar store, so relationships with customers are maintained at the events the company attends. A schedule of where Hatters will be throughout the year can be found here.
