“Anything will taste good if you’re hungry enough. “-Hoss Cartwright

The ten gallon hat is said to have come from the spanish phrase a ten “galón” hat, or a hat tall enough to have ten ribbons or braids. When Americans in the old west heard the phrase they began to call them 10 gallon hats. The style caught on in the 60s and 70s as Honky Tonk country singers and bands like ZZ Top donned the cut with swagger. Perhaps the most iconic of all the ten gallon hats was the one worn by Dan Blocker’s Character “Hoss Cartwright.” It is a sand colored brim curled tightly toward the sky around a crown cut as deep as a volcanic lake. Hoss wore the classic white, a throwback to an earlier era when the good guys wore the white hats. A purposeful nod to the fact that Hoss’s character was the most angelic of the three brothers. Always the naive accomplice of Little Joe’s pranks, Dan Blocker rode a gap-toothed grin into the hearts of the American home and helped popularize the large crown that became the Icon of a generation.
