They're in, the 'Tartes - Field Version'!

Since the Good News post last Monday, things moved quickly. The first lot of Tartes Chasseur Alpin - Field Version has just come in!
A small number of beautiful 320mm berets, sized but without a headband; the solid wool rim is sized, guaranteeing an extremely comfortable and snug fit. I dare say, you can't find a better beret for winter use (and actually, it does very well in the Wellington spring too - haven't worn anything else for weeks!). 
With the pre-orders taken off, there are still a number in the sizes 59, 60 and 61, but only one in 57 and two in size 58.  The next shipment is expected by mid or late December.
