I bought my husband a black stormy Kromer last fall. When it arrived, I tried it on and fell in love with it and immediately ordered one for myself.
I wore it non-stop all winter. This summer while I was up north, I purchased a white Ida Kromer and it is even better. I love the more modified brim...a slight difference but more flattering to my face. I, too, wish the "Ida" came in black so I could replace my black "Stormy" with an "Ida". Wonderful winter hat...I probably will be back for a brown "Ida".
