Justin Hats factory buildingOur Story

In 1990, Milano Hat Company acquired Justin Hats, a well-known name within the hat industry. Its parent company, Justin Boots, was founded by Herman J. Justin over 100 years ago. Over these years, Justin Boots became the icon of the western culture. Continuing its legacy under Justin Hats, Milano Hat Company began handcrafting authentic western straw hats.   

The company then went on to expand the collection, introducing hats made of premium wool and fur felt. Today, Justin Hats, with the addition of Bent Rail under its banner, has become widely recognized in the market much like Justin Boots.
