The Mackinaw Cap by Stormy Kromer

In 1903, George “Stormy” Kromer—a semi-pro baseball player and railroad engineer— asked his wife, Ida, for a solution to the freezing wind stealing his cap as he navigated locomotives across the open prairies of the Midwest. Her solution was to hand-stitch the now-famous earflaps on one of Stormy’s old baseball caps. The hat stayed on. His head stayed warm. And a legend was born.

The now iconic Stormy Kromer comes with 100 years of craftsmanship and history built into its design. Each hat is sewn in Michigan, USA and is designed to beat the winter months whilst fitting snugly on your head. For extra ear warmth you just pull down on the classic encircling band when the hat is on your head - no need to untie fiddly strings. This Mackinaw Cap is cut from the same premium wool as their hardy winter coat; this thing is made to keep you warm, give you a lifetime of winter wear and in full-on comfort.

No questions asked. In addition, if your hat ever wears out or there is a problem with the workmanship Stormy Kromer will replace it free of charge; a Lifetime Guarantee.
