Bill Murray in a Stormy Kromer?

Yes, you read it right.  The quirky actor was spotted on the golf links sporting a charcoal Original Stormy Kromer Cap.  His presence at the Irish Open Pro-Am garnered a lot of media attention, including an interview by BBC News in which he is wearing his cap the entire time.  Several celebrity sites have also posted photos – this photo gallery is a particularly good one.

Welcome to the Stormy Kromer family Bill!

 

Hat’s off to our Dads

Earlier this week, we asked our employees to share with us some bit of advice they got from their dads.  In turn, we thought we’d share these words of wisdom with you.  From the practical to the silly, they are a great reminder for us to say thanks to our dads this weekend for all they do for us.

Enjoy!

“The day before I got married my Dad pulled me aside and said, ‘Before you go I need to teach you a couple of things: 1) how to change a flat tire because every girl needs to know how to change a tire and 2) how to make a batch of homemade spaghetti sauce because the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach! ‘”
-Kirsten, Customer Service

“My dad, the founder of Jacquart Fabric Products once told me, ‘Once you start working 12 hours a day, your luck will change.’”
-Bob, CEO

“My dad always told me while in the car and a deer crosses, ‘When there’s one, there’s two.’  I frequently find myself repeating him now when I see a deer, and of course once the second deer crosses, I feel that it’s “okay” to continue.  (Until that third one runs across one day!)”
-Katie, Customer Service

“Always have a firm handshake.”
-KJ, Key Accounts

“My dad was a man of very few words and I learned from him over the years by simply watching what he would do rather than what he would say.  He treated everyone with respect, therefore, he was respected.  He was indeed a legendary dad.”
-Joel, Sales Manager

We’d love to know what you’ve learned from your father in the comments below.  In the meantime, Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there!

Looking for that perfect Father’s Day gift?

It’s soon to be Father’s Day…and if you’re scratching your head as to what to get the deserving man in your life, don’t worry.  We’ve got you covered.

We’ve just added some all new colors to our popular Deck Shirts – in a lighter weight than our flannels or twills, these shirts are as versatile as they are fashionable.  Choose from the blue hue of Lagoon, or the warm and woodsy look of Sequoia.  Either way, the man in your life will be a statement of outdoors style!

 

 

For the guy on the go, try one of our all-new wool and waxed cotton bags.  The Sidekick is Stormy’s take on the popular messenger bag style, while the Night-Timer, our new rugged overnight bag, works just as well in a hotel as it does in a tent. Both come in four colorways, including our classic red and black plaid.

Of course, you can never go wrong with one of our classic caps, even if it is the middle of June.  With your help, Dad will be prepared well in advance of this fall and winter.  After all, aren’t we expecting a heck of a winter after last year’s mild days?  Try one of our all new offerings – like the Original in Adirondack Plaid, or the Waxed Cotton in Black.

Would your Dad enjoy one of these new products?  Is he already a Kromer fan?  We’d love to hear your best “Dad” stories here in the comments.
