Ultra Basque Berets
Once pretty much the only Basque berets available in the
US, the Czech (previously Czechoslovak)
made Ultra Basques.
The Ultra Basque is a traditional beret with a long history, originally made by FEZCO (which was later taken over by TONAK) - one of the oldest hat manufacturers in the world still in operation today.
Un-lined, basic berets in a one-size-fit-all that are extremely comfortable to wear and at a very competitive price (from $27.00). Available in two diameters: 10.5" / 265mm (in black and grey) and 11.5" / 290mm (in black, navy,and heather varieties). 100% wool, except for the 10.5" in grey (70/30% wool/viscose).
The berets in heather wool are available in Charcoal, Brown and Camel; the heather giving the felted wool a slightly marbled effect.
