This 310 and some same sized Auloronesa's (different colors) get the bulk of my head time. I don't know, but they behave and wear as you'd like them to and they have enough size to be exceptionally useful. That, and the felt is hard to beat and takes a beating. They're the sweet spot in my beret collection. This one has been living in my car as my "go-to" for a while now. Once Summer comes along, I'll have to stop that.

I wanted a nice small beret like Niven wears in The Guns Of Navarone, I did a google search and found this excellent hatmaker in Italy http://www.cappelleriamelegari.com/...Path=380_411_65&products_id=2900#.Wqvhk-jFKUk
Chose a 24cm in my size 58
It has a satin liner and a sewn in sweatband and is very well made for 15 Euros, ( shipping to the UK was 12 Euros
That would be blasphemy! But.., the first photo actually shows two txapela's framed behind glass on the casks of cider. Quite an honourable position, I'd say.An article in the New York Times on an aspect of traditional Basque culture -- and not one beret-covered head in the accompanying photographs!

Mind you, most photo's in the article are taken inside and, although many Basques (and the odd New Zealander, for that matter) keep their berets on inside, many take their beret off indoors.
Yes, palombière. I published a post on this pigeon hunt a few years ago:This NYT article
photos only: https://nyti.ms/2dUvxmThas a few berets on heads, outdoors and indoors. That's more like it!

It is a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon (aka Griffon d'arrêt à poil dur Korthals in France and Quebec); a breed of dog used in hunting as a gundog.I would really like to know the breed of the dog pictured with the pigeon hunting family.
