Stormy Kromer

Maker - Bob Jacquart

Stormy Kromer

Maker Story

Midwest Classic

Stormy Kromer caps are an American original. Each one is hand-stitched, just like the first was back in 1903, when railroad engineer George “Stormy” Kromer asked his wife, Ida, to modify an old baseball cap so it would stay put when he stuck his head out the window of a train. Ida’s creation held fast, even in fierce winds, and soon other railroad workers wanted her caps for themselves.

Originally dubbed the Blizzard Cap and made at the Kromer Cap Company in Milwaukee, Wisc., the hearty classic today is sewn in Ironwood, Mich., where Jacquart Fabric Products is based. CEO Bob Jacquart took over production of the iconic caps in 2001, when he learned that they were going to be discontinued, and his daughter, Gina, now runs the family business.

Stormy Kromer caps are made from 100% wool. They’re comfortable, snug, and sturdy. The visor gives you added protection from the sun and wind, and the earband can be pulled down over your ears when you want extra coverage. The silhouette has a classic, salt-of-the-earth vibe -- but you don’t have to be ice fishing or snowmobiling to pull it off. It’s equally at home on the trails, in the city, and out on the town. It’s no wonder these cool caps have stuck around for more than 100 years.
