Looking For A Living Legend
The legend of Stormy Kromer began with a unique cap design in 1903. Over the course of more than 100 years, Jacquart Fabric Products has proudly become the Caretaker of the Legend, not only continuing to manufacture the popular cap, but expanding the brand and product line to create the Stormy Kromer Mercantile featuring a wide variety of men’s and women’s clothing and outerwear to promote the iconic caps.
To celebrate the spirit of George “Stormy” Kromer as well as the perseverance of Jacquart Fabric Products, who in 2001, brought the original Kromer cap back from the brink of extinction, the company has created its’ annual Search for a Living Legend. The first Living Legend award was given to Jim Dehlin of Roscommon, Michigan this past January. And now the search for the second Stormy Kromer Living Legend is underway.
Nominations for entries into the contest will be accepted from September 10 through November 5, 2012. Simply visit StormyKromer.com and share the story of a legend. After all of the nominations are received, the field will be narrowed down to ten nominees, online voting will open in mid-November and the winner will be named in January 2013.
The winner of the 2013 Stormy Kromer Living Legend award will receive a $500 Stormy Kromer gift certificate, be featured in the 2013-2014 Stormy Kromer catalog as well as have a percentage of all online sales from January 7 – 31, 2013 donated to the charity of his or her choice.
