There's a reason button design snakes back 5000 years: it works! But a sewn-on round medallion is as fashionable as it is functional. Just ask the ancient Romans, 12th-century French nobility, or any colonial American. You can do a lot with a single button, such as revolutionize an iconic hat. Welcome to the Stormy Kromer Button Up based on millennia of good design, fresh for 2017.
To get your size, measure comfortably around your head where your cap will sit, with a tape measure. Take that number in inches, divide by 3.14 (pi) and round up to the nearest eighth. This is your cap size. See the chart for size conversions. You can also print out our hat sizer, click here.
Fit perfectly, warm and the visor is perfect for keeping the low winter sun out of your eyes. Green plaid with purple is so pretty. Button detail is cute and love the way the rim pulls down to keep your ears warm. Functional, warm and looks great on!
I love the simple style of this hat. The partridge plaid is gorgeous. I got the size according to my measured head and it fits the circumference of my head, but it feels like it needs to have a little more depth. Not sure if a larger size would have made a difference but I still love the hat.
This hat is adorable! I have another Stormy that I love, as well. I ordered the same size and it's a bit snug, but it will stretch to fit like a custom made hat.
Purchased my hat wife liked it so I ordered on line!
My wife loves the hat!
Purchased for my girl, she has wanted a Kromer for sometime now. I ordered the hat for Christmas and it was perfect! Size was spot on and the service was personal and timely. Also love that it is made in Michigan's UP.
I highly recommend Stormy Kromer products. My hat is 15 years old and worn almost daily in the winter, it still looks great.
Great quality, loving it so far!
I got this in the brown tones plaid, looks great with a brown jacket that I have. Very cute, stylish yet doesn't call attention to itself. I like that it's made in Michigan. Only caveat: I have a moderate size head--I bought the largest size available, and it just barely fits. A little too snug, but I decided to keep it anyway. Why do so many cap/hat makers make their products so small? I read complaints about this on many sites, including this one, but it doesn't change. Are the hat makers using patterns made in Asia where people may have smaller heads? ~ Joyce, glad you like the hat. We make all of our patterns for SK hats and apparel right here in the UP of Michigan. If the fit is too tight, you can always return or exchange it for a larger size. Give our customer service a call at 888-455-2253 and they should be able to help you out. ~ SK ~
For my birthday I received a Stormy Kromer gift card so I ordered the button up in red tartan plaid and in winter white. I already had an Ida Kromer in gray, so I just went with the same size. I absolutely love these hats! So far I've worn both of my new hats and the size is consistent with my old one. The flap works great when it's a little colder out, and they're cute enough to get compliments when I wear there. From my experience with the Ida Kromer I have no doubt that the button up will also stand up to our cold, snowy SW Michigan winters!
They say that when you own a Stormy Kromer, no other cap will ever satisfy your taste for comfort or quality. And we believe that’s true too, so we offer what other clothing manufacturers might consider a little crazy. Learn more here.
