Basque

The beret is a knitted felted or boiled wool cap with a concentric weft on a flat disc that can have different sizes; it is a cap originally from the Basque Country and used by the farmers of those places.

Over time, this cap has taken different shapes and this has led to the identification of all those soft caps, cut in the shape of a round plate with or without folds, which are almost always worn on the head with one side.

Born as a women's cap, today the Basque is considered a very popular unisex cap in the fashion world; over the last few years the beret has been used in many fashion shows of major international fashion brands.

How to Choose the Right Hat Size

Choosing the correct beret size is always a critical moment also because each hat made with craftsmanship and then sold in hats have very different sizes compared to the classic ones to which clothing stores have become accustomed.

The sizes for berets are calculated in centimeters and range from size 55 (the smallest) up to 62 (the largest); to understand which is the most suitable size for us we need to follow an extremely simple and quick procedure.

To calculate your correct beret size, all you have to do is take a tailor's tape measure, measure the circumference of your head by holding the tape measure just one centimeter above your ears, which is where your hat will fit perfectly.

If you do not have a tailor's meter, you can calculate the size simply using a piece of string, a string or a lace of your shoes: in the same procedure as before, calculate the circumference with the meter, mark with a pen or a felt-tip pen at the point where the two parts of the lace meet, after which with a ruler or a normal meter measure the lace.
