The Cattleman crease is the most basic and oldest crease found on a cowboy hat.
A Cattlemen crease started when ranch owners did not want the look of the rodeo cowboy on their cowboy hat.
These cattlemen wanted a more taller and narrower crown so that when the wind blew and the rain poured these cowboys could pull their cowboy hats down so that it would stay on their head better.
The Cattleman crease is also a dressy crease and worn by the true cowboy gentlemen.
A Cattleman crease can be found on former President George W Bush's cowboy hats.
