Employee Profiles: Melissa Allen

When people ask what I do for a living, I tell them I work on the Kromer line—with a big smile on my face, of course. Naturally, I’m happy to be here. I get to work with great and hard-working people, and we make something that lasts a lifetime. How could you be anything but proud of that?

After three years here, I get to do a lot of different jobs, but my day is mostly spent stitching in the liners and the labels, and I still get to help attach the earbands. For me, every day on the job is the best day on the job because I know people can wear our gear with a smile.

It’s true I only own one Kromer cap—it’s stylish, and it keeps my head really warm—but every single member of my
family has a cap to go with mine, so I think we’re covered. Well… I suppose we could use a few more. And I’ve been eyeing up the purses, too.

Using Your Stormy Kromer

Happy New Year everyone!

We have a feeling that there were quite a few Stormy Kromer caps under the Christmas tree this year.  So to any new members of the SK family who might be reading this blog for the first time, welcome!

Because of our potential newcomers, we thought we’d take a minute to review the use of your Stormy Kromer.  You might not need instructions to wear your new cap, but there is a right way and a wrong way.  The right way involves putting the cap on your head, grabbing the earband on both sides and pulling down.

There’s no unfolding or flipping of the flaps, and you don’t have to take the hat off to use them.  Just pull down and settle in.  They’ll stay in place without pinching.  And if you want to make a slight shift in snugness, just untie the string, adjust and retie.
