Tony Lama was known for his excellent craftsmanship in western boots.  He was introduced to the boot industry at the tender age of 11.  Over the next several years, Tony Lama began to handcraft boots, which became popular in the western culture.

Today, as a division of Justin brands, the Tony Lama brand has expanded into the hat industry with Milano Hat Company manufacturing straw and felt western hats as well as caps. Replicating the same craftsmanship found in Tony Lama boots, the hats are skillfully made with the finest quality of straw and felt, making them unique and authentic.
