Buck up and put on a Kromer

22aa6e46304e2e63aa924355225833c8Cold weather is no excuse to stay inside. While folks here may be a little “cheesy,” as in Wisconsin’s famous export, we’re serious about spending time outdoors all twelve months.  And for about nine of them you’ll find Stormy Kromer hats are a uniform in Wisconsin.

It’s the windproof boiled bool, magic pull-down earflap, awesome bow and handsome brim, though we don’t get much sun in these parts.  But most of all is because we all look so great wearing them, and have since 1903 when the famous cap was born in Wisconsin.

Our friends at Northern Michigan’s Stormy Kromer factory put together a little history video.  We like it and think you will too.  Come see us in Downtown Wausau, WI when you’re ready to pick out your first Kromer, or your tenth.  And if you didn’t catch on already, our favorite hat is Made in the USA.  Another good thing.
