“Next time, Miss Crabtree, pick on a man, not a boy. ” -Adam Cartwright

As the eldest Cartwright brother, Adam is well educated and acts his father’s right hand. Born in his grandfather’s house in Boston MA, Adam travels with his father across the United States after the death of his mother. They eventually settle in territory known now as Lake Tahoe where he helps build and run the Ponderosa Ranch with his two younger brothers Hoss and “Little” Joe. Compared to his younger brothers Adam is serious and thoughtful a distinction evident even in his wardrobe. While many westerns dress their villains in all black, Adam wears the color almost exclusively, whether it’s an all black outfit or an accented black vest or hat.

Pernell Roberts famously left the show after 200 episodes and his character was only mentioned a few times during the show’s run. It’s well known that Roberts (a seasoned theater actor) was unhappy with scheduling demands of a network television show as well as the lack of character development. After leaving the show during its 6th season, Pernell returned to the stage and appeared in various film and television roles.

Baron is proud to offer this  replica for any Bonanza super fan. Our replica “Adam” hat is hand blocked with a telescope crown and the brim is finished with a loose pencil roll. The leather hatband is hand cut and finished metallic studs spaced 1.5″ apart  and closed with a silver buckle.

Inspired by the hat worn by Pernell Roberts as Adam from the second season of “Bonanza” and on. For information about his hat from season 1 please email us:

All of our hats are crafted of 100% rabbit felt and beaver felt. Each hat comes with a silk lining and leather sweatband unless specified otherwise.
