A Childhood Passion

As a child growing up in Pueblo, Colorado, Johnson developed an obsession with western hats. He was fascinated by the way his grandfathers would put on a hat before they left the house, no matter where they were going. As his friends began collecting sports cards and video games, Johnson began collecting western hats. Johnson also had an entrepreneurial spirit and created his own lawn-mowing business with a lawn mower leased from his parents. He used funds he acquired by selling the business to help pay for his education at the University of Northern Colorado in the business school but decided to become a teacher instead. After he determined he did not want to spend his career in this classroom, Johnson really tapped into his passion and began learning the craft of hat-making at the Orr Ranch.

Making a Career Out of His Love for Hats

After apprenticing for three and a half years, Trent used his skills, entrepreneurial drive, and business knowledge to purchase Greeley Hat Works in 1996. When he connected with Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan fifteen years ago, he never imagined he would one day be supplying custom hats for a show as popular as Yellowstone. Using only the finest materials and specific details he’s noted about each character, Johnson creates custom hats based on personality and lifestyle.
