Oh man, you actually pull on it? I’d be too concerned about it accidentally ripping off.It’s one thing I never pay attention to. I will reach up and grab it on occasion to adjust the beret without pulling my hair all around, but that’s about it.
In the article I linked earlier, they talk about how town drunks would get publicly shamed by having their txapela’s “txertena” cut off. And the whole town would know why they had theirs cut off.
Also, I remember there was a brand that @Daan posted about from Poland or somewhere in Eastern Europe, where the little tail was actually colored differently than the rest of the beret’s wool.
