The only fabric in the world protected by an act of Parliment, Harris Tweed must be made with 100% pure virgin wool, dyed, spun, and finished in the Outer Hebrides and woven by the islanders in their homes on the Islands of Lewis, Harris, Uist, and Barra. This cap combines the history and tradition of two fine brands from either side of the Atlantic.

HOW DO I CALCULATE MY CAP SIZE?
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.

HOW TO USE EARFLAPS
You might not need instructions to wear your Stormy Kromer masterpiece, but there is a right way and a wrong way. The right way involves putting the cap on your head, grabbing the ear band on both sides and pulling down. There’s no unfolding or flipping, and you don’t have to take your cap off. Just pull down and settle in.
