ten gallon hats: a large broad-brimmed hat, with a high rounded crown, traditionally worn by cowboys. It is best known as the defining piece of clothing for the North American cowboy.
No one really knows where the term came from, but according to thevintagenews.com, the term dates back to 1925. The most conventional explanation being that the hat holds “ten gallons of water”, but this isn’t true. The thinking is that the word “gallon” actually comes from the Spanish word “galón” which means “braid”, so a ten gallon hat is actually any hat that has braiding around the brim.
