On SPECIAL this week, the Classic Franco-German Baskenmütze!

These Baskenmütze (German for 'Basque beret') are made in the historical hatters town of Luckenwalde, in the former G.D.R. It was here that, in 1923, Jewish architect Erich Mendelsohn erected the Herrmann hat factory, a milestone of Expressionist architecture. 
Luckenwalde's hat making history dates back to the 17th century.
T hese berets are a Franco-German co-production: the plain hoods, consisting of pure merino wool, come from France and are then modified, lined, "head-banded" and finished in Germany.
The Baskenmütze Classic is, as the name implies, a classic Basque Beret in 27.5cm diameter. Artisan production, perfect finishing and fitted with a very pleasant viscose lining. A most comfortable beret available in Black and Navy, sizes 57 - 61.
For one week only at a 25+% discount from $47.50 @ $35.50!
