A while back I decided I needed an alternative to a ski hat for the winters here in the Valley. My first Stormy Kromer was a nice refined green wool one (it has even been to the White House). I later added a waxed cotton one to use when guiding in the rain.
At some point this fall/winter I mentioned to MRS that I fancied a buffalo plaid one. To my delight Lily gave me one for Christmas.
If you don’t know about Stormy Kromer hats you should. They are classics.
