Beret-Label Art

Discussing berets and their labels the other day with a friend, we concluded that the really nice beret labels are a thing of the past. The romantic pictures of pipe-smoking gentleman walking in the rain, beautiful ladies, labels fitted on exquisite multicoloured silk lining...
Here are a few samples of some of the nicest in my collection:

  1. Yeah Daan! It would seem that every year that passes there are less and less REAL-DEAL-BERET-MANUFACTURERS left!!!! Eventually there will come a time when you look to the left and to the right and there will only be 1 or 2 companies left. I understand that India and China are mass producing a ton of crapola 'cheap' berets that are slowly erroding the real beret manufacturers ability to stay afloat, but what can WE as beret wearers do to combat this??? Any takers?? Thanks in advance.
