The World's Best Beret!

I have been asked many times what the world's best beret would be and I always answered diplomatically and truthfully, that there is no such thing as "one best beret". I may have to retrace my steps...
Please meet the world's best (and yes, most expensive) headband-less beret: the special edition Elósegui 150 Años Edición Limitada

These berets were made in a small quantity to celebrate Boinas Elósegui's 150th birthday in 2008. Made of hand selected 100% Australian merino wool, waterproofed by Telflon® treatment. ecologically moth-proofed with MITTIN FF® and thermo-regulated with smart PCM Outlast® lining, allowing adaptation to temperature: warm in winter, cool in the summer. 
Handmade by Spain's oldest and only surviving traditional beret manufacturer in 300mm diameter. These berets come in a cardboard gift-box  have a beautiful '150 Years Anniversary' label fitted and a cardboard information sheet included. Available in a limited number only.
For me, it will mean serious daily competition between my beloved Tarte and this beret... 


  1. Are they one size fits all?

    1. Correct. No fitted headband, but a comfortable woolen rim that adjusts to the individuals head size and shape.
