It’s possible a 4-panel hat constructed by hand, with love, for a larger-than-life character named Stormy Kromer could have been as iconic. We’ll never know. Ida stitched together 6-panels in 1903, and the rest is history. Rich, warm, wonderfully-fitted history. The original Stormy Kromer® cap lined in cotton flannel, few things age perfectly. This is one of them.
