Created by railroad engineer George "Stormy" Kromer, the Stormy Kromer clothing brand actually started with a single cap designed to stay snug, even in strong winds. Created by George and his wife Ida in 1903, the first Stormy Kromer hats were crafted of durable cloth with a canvas visor and “stay put” six-panel design. Pretty soon, other railroad workers started asking for Stormy’s hats, and a company was born. Today, Stormy Kromer gloves, hats and clothing are still hand-crafted in the USA just like the originals.

Great Quality for the Price ….. A wee bit fitted for my taste ( I Like a Boxy Fit )
But … It Works … and the plaid is nice an' subtle
I Would Say Order Up … If you intend anything under it except for a thin t-shirt.

This is exactly the shirt for which I searched far and wide. Heavy twill material, cozy and warm, and can readily serve as a very light jacket over a t-shirt, which is how I wear it a lot. The shirt feels like it's two, maybe three times as "thick" as a typical shirt one would wear with a suit, and the quality appears great. Given that I just bought the shirt in January 2015, we will see how long the shirt lasts -- I would expect to get a number of years out of it. All in all, and having worn it a number of times, I'm quite pleased so far. And as an aside, the twill material appears to get softer after each washing. Note - I remove it from the dryer when it's still slightly damp, and let it finish drying on the hanger; this seems to remove most of the wrinkles from the wash / dry cycle, and precludes a need to iron it.

I usually shop at C's outdoor store, because their Large/Tall shirts are a good fit for my long arms and torso. The XL in this shirt has tails that cover my backside, and all the way behind the front pockets. Plenty long, and built like a tank. Double material for almost 2" on both button and 'hole' sides. Chamois shirts are generally too heavy for this climate, a heavy poplin is better. This is the first HEAVY poplin shirt I've seen since the Minnesota Traders sold out of them about 15 years ago. It's a KEEPER.
