Vintage Black Wool Basque Beret, France, ca 1960s

$75.00 USD



  • Wool
This iconic black wool Barque beret is in excellent vintage condition. There is an interior band, seat band with "9" and "57" imprinted on it - this would make the beret about a size 7 1/8 by America standards, or just under 22 1/2" at the interior opening.

The copper, white and gold satin lining bears a sewn-in label "Super Basque," and "Impermeable Pure Laine" - the hat is pure wool and it is waterproof.

What a wonderful example of Basque style at its best! This beret would certainly enhance - or be the focal point of - your contemporary or vintage ensemble and would be a fantastic addition to your vintage collection.
