The Original Cap With Harris Tweed
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 those classic flaps on either side when the hat is on your head - no need to untie fiddly strings.

Across the waters from Scotland, beyond the Isle of Skye lies the barren, rocky island of Harris. One hundred and fifty years ago, the people of this island created a unique cloth, a tweed woven entirely by hand that was to become world famous. Today, it is known simply as Harris Tweed. Proudly flanking the cap to warm your ears when needed, it looks perfect in tandem with the classic Stormy design.
