Get out your tape measure, measure your head and take advantage of Stormy Kromer’s biggest sale of the year

Ironwood, MI (March 10, 2022) - Since 1903, the Stormy Kromer brand has come to embody the independence, wit and grit of the upper Midwest. It all started with a cap. George “Stormy” Kromer, a semi-pro baseball player and railroad engineer, kept losing his hat on the train. He asked his wife, Ida, to sew an earband on his favorite ball cap to keep his ears warm and the hat snug. It worked. The folks at Stormy Kromer know that one size never truly fits all and they want to ensure their legendary cap fits as precisely as possible. The perfect fit is measured by the circumference of your head in inches and then divided by Pi (3.14).

Stormy Kromer is hosting their one-day Pi-Day sale on March 14th. Stock up on all your Stormy apparel.  Shoppers receive 31.4% off on Monday, March 14, with shipping for all orders under $75 at $3.14, with code 314PIDAY. Stormy Kromer, handcrafted hats are made in Ironwood, Michigan. There are no exclusions to this sale, so it is the best time to stock up items such as their Mackinaw Coat ($299-309.99), Rancher Cap ($52.99), and all the other apparel and accessories they have to offer. This is the largest sale of the year until Black Friday so time is of the essence! 

“With this winter that doesn’t want to seem to end, we thought having a little fun on Pi Day made perfect sense,” said Gina Thorsen, president, and co-owner of Stormy Kromer. “After all, our handmade caps are sized using Pi.”

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts (to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and eat pie.)

There’s a reason the cap is legendary. The wool blend resists the elements and the 100% cotton flannel lining helps keep you warm all winter. The ingenious pull-down earband provides comfort and flexibility. The six-panel construction keeps the cap on your head, where it belongs. And our wide range of sizes guarantees a great fit. No wonder it’s lasted more than a century.

If you don’t have a flexible measuring tape, no problem… just take a shoelace or charging cord and place it about a half-inch above your ear (otherwise known as where your hat would sit) and then take that measurement against a yardstick, tape measure or even a ruler for the tinier heads! From there, you have the best possible sized cap for your noggin’! For more of a visual representation, here you can see in this video exactly how to measure your head.
