“For an American company to add an American heritage brand to its portfolio is always a cause for celebration,” said Dorfman Pacific CEO Douglas Highsmith. “But for an American hat manufacturer, nothing could be more viscerally thrilling, or a greater cause for pride, than to take responsibility for Stetson—one of, quite possibly the most authentic and legendary of all American brands.”
“We are very excited to partner with Dorfman Pacific and look forward to taking Stetson’s headwear business forward with them in collaboration with all of the Stetson licensees,” said Stetson Worldwide CEO Pamela Fields.
Stetson was founded in 1865 by John B. Stetson. Dorfman Pacific produces hats under the Tommy Bahama, Woolrich, Panama Jack, Scala, Christys London and Indiana Jones brands, among many others.
