The Basque Beret for Men : Classic Headwear
The beret has a long-standing history. The first true Basque berets came, as their name suggests, from the Basque country, a region with its own unique culture and language split between France and Spain along the Atlantic coast, at the foot of the pyrenees mountain range. The Basque beret was invented by Basque shepherds to protect themselves from sun and rain.
Tried and true navigators, Basque sailors spread this exquisite product around the world, making the Basque beret one of the most recognisable and sought-after beret in the world!
Kangol Berets for Men
The world-famous English brand Kangol knew its first glory days during the Second World war. They had their first major contract as suppliers for the British Army, for which they made commando-style berets. You can still purchase the Monty Beret today. The Monty got its name from General Montgomery, also known as “Monty”, who insisted on wearing a private’s beret in public, instead of a richly decorated general’s cap.
Kangol is also famous for the Wool Jax Beret, a street wear beret that was all the rage in the days of Bell Biv DeVoe and the Jax music era. Come visit our store today to find the Kangol beret you are searching for!
