    Berets, Anyone?

    Due to an unscheduled visit to the hospital (ACS) I might be inclined to add a beard to my berets. After all, the first week is the worst in growing a beard and I was pretty much occupied with more serious matter during that time.

    Berets, Anyone?

    I havent worn a beret for three month. The woolen ones are far too warm, no matter how "great" merino wool is claimed to be. And the cotton ones, soaked with sweat after half an hour and stinking, cant be washed. Waiting for autumn to arrive.

    An afternoon-nap in the garden. The beret puts me in the dark.

    Berets, Anyone?

    Its a Citizen, ref. NY0049-09. I prefer it over the ones of Seiko because of this look, its slightly less bulky appearance and the day/date being in black. The beret is one of Daan's "specials", a Boinas Elisegui in "khaki".

    Berets, Anyone?

    Unfortunately, in my part of Germany, I am about the youngest to wear a beret. And I am already old at 58. The young ones wear those high-domed Baseball Cap, what else. In between, there is no headgear, save the more unobtrusive Peaked Cap, worn for practical reasons. Very few men about my...

    Berets, Anyone?

    With these really small, skull-hugging berets, in a lightweight wool, there wont be that much shape-finding. But the bigger ones, maybealso made from a more substantial wool and - most important - with lots of "overhang" really do benefit from a fixed position. They acquire a shape and fit...

    Berets, Anyone?

    Ok, I admit to being quite picky with berets, but life is too short to wear a bad one. Finally, I managed to make one of my berets of french origin (Musee du Beret) wearable for my head. IME (3 out of 3) french berets of a fixed size are all over the place, size-wise. They may be able to do...

    Berets, Anyone?

    In the woods with the "Alpine" from Boneteria Auloronesa. Last week, this beret drove me crazy while working in the garden: everytime I bent over and scooped up the leaves, the beret flopped forward. Straightening up it stayed there, obscured the view and had to be pushed back. A problem only...

    Berets, Anyone?

    Today its one from the first batch of SPB's own line of berets. At first, I couldn't stand it for being so soft. But once I found the proper way to wear it - all the way forward and to the left - it quickly became a favorite. (But then every beret is a favorite once I wear it ;) )

    In Germany we call these garments, no matter whether ist overall, jacket or trousers, quite simple "Blaumann".

    A picture, posted by Daan on facbook, illustrates this with the three people in the foreground. left to right: useless, practical, practical and stylish. Well, after all its french.;)

    Berets, Anyone?

    Most civilian berets are larger than those contemporary Jarmulke-sized military ones. ;) (What good is a beret, if it doesnt provide shelter with a generous fold?)

    Berets, Anyone?

    Chiming in as a civilian, its currently far too hot to wear a beret. My beretial comfort zone ends at 20°C and right now we are quite beyond and its humid, too. Alas, the disadvantages of summer, I will bear them. ;)

    Berets, Anyone?

    On the subject of the beret's pricing. I did a quick Google search with "baseball cap nike (adidas)" and found prices in the € 30,- range. For a piece of Polyester crap, cobbled together in a southeast asian sweatshop. So these berets are still cheap enough. ;) (On a not-quite-related object...
