About Stormy Kromer
In 1903, George "Stormy" Kromer, a semi-pro baseball player and railroad engineer, asked his wife, Ida to modify an old baseball cap to help keep it on in windy weather. The all-cloth cap with the soft, canvas visor was a departure from the traditional fedoras of the day, but it was more comfortable and because of it's six-panel fit, it stayed put. Soon other railroad workers wanted one of Stormy Kromer's caps for themselves, and when Ida could no longer keep up with demand, they hired a few employees and the business was born.
Why We Like Stormy Kromer
A lot of things have changed since their earlier caps - new colors, new fabrics, new styles - but they never changed the way they make them. They're hand-stitched right here in the good old USA, and they're still made to fit better than anything you've had next to your noggin. Stormy Kromer caps are true to the original, and that means you get all the comfort and function that made them famous.
